Few disasters in a home can be more damaging than indoor flooding mixed with sewage or a sewage backup. Excess water in a home can cause several issues from structural damage to mold growth and if the water is contaminated with sewage, there is an added risk of serious health effects. Attempting to clean up sewage water will increase your risk of negative health effects, so make sure you contact a professional right away.

Our technicians can safely and effectively remove all sewage contaminated water and ensure that the damaged area is cleaned and restored.
Water damage is a threat to your home because porous building materials like wood, flooring, drywall, and insulation absorb the excess water and allow it to spread. As the water gets absorbed, these materials become weakened and experience significant damage that can threaten the structural integrity of your home. The presence of sewage in the water makes the situation much worse because the spreading water also spreads waste materials and harmful substances like bacteria and microorganisms commonly found in sewage. This will not only add to the damage, but also increase the risk of negative health effects from exposure to the sewage.
