While water can cause a considerable amount of damage to a home or building, contaminated water can make matters even worse. This will not only cause more damage to the building structure but pose a serious threat to the health of you and your family; the contaminants of the water can include: urine, biohazards, feces, and other human waste. When a sewage backup does occur, it is crucial to call an emergency restoration company right away.

With our services, we will ensure that the affected area will be completely disinfected, sanitized, and dried to provide a healthy environment for you and your family again. We will also work with insurance to allow the process to run as smooth as possible for you.
Dealing with Sewage Backups
When a backup occurs, there is usually a blockage within the pipe containing the waste water. As it will not be able to pass through the pipe, it is forced, depending on how much pressure, to run back up to the drain and spill on to the floor. In other cases, flooding can occur on the exterior part of the home as a tree root can wrap around the sewage pipe, causing it to burst and pool around your property. In order to have this cleaned properly, you must call a restoration company immediately in order to prevent the spread of damage and protect against negative health effects.
