Sewer Backup Damages
Because sewage water is so dangerous to the health of you and your loved ones or tenants, the cleanup job must be handled by a professional. ServiceMaster Restoration by Century will ensure that the area is disinfected properly and provides a safe environment again for everyone residing in the building or home.
In the event of sewer contamination, it is usually caused by a backup or clog beneath the sewer drain that is not able to pass through the pipe. As water is not able to flow freely through the pipe, the pressure will push it back up and out of the drain, causing it to overflow and contaminate the property. While some situations may involve a small amount of water, others can involve severe flooding that must be treated immediately.
Sewer backups can also occur on the outside, beneath the home or building. While it can go unnoticed for long periods of time, large roots from trees can apply significant amounts of pressure to the underground pipes and cause it to burst. The foundation can then experience severe sewage water damage if the burst pipe contains toxic waste materials.
