Sewage backups can be one of the messiest jobs to clean, especially if the water penetrates through porous surfaces, such as wood and drywall. But know that this water is filled with bacteria that poses a severe threat to the health of you and your loved ones. The biohazards and waste contained in the water will also destroy the building materials and personal contents quicker than fresh and even greywater.

Our technicians use commercial equipment and products to sanitize and disinfect all non-porous materials while replacing the drywall, drywall, insulation, and wood floors. By killing all dangerous bacteria, they will ensure that your property provides a healthy and clean environment again.
Property Damages Caused by Sewage Contamination
While sewage contamination can be one of the most dangerous cleanup jobs, they are common among many properties because of the number of possible sources around the home or building. Whether something had clogged the toilet or the sewage pipe had burst, contaminated water can quickly overflow and spill out over the drain or toilet.
On the other hand, not all backups occur from within the home. If the roots from a large tree have put too much pressure on the underground pipes, they can burst. This will allow contaminated water to flow through the ground, seep into the foundation, and flood the basement. Don’t hesitate to call ServiceMaster by Crossroads if contaminated water has flooded your basement.
As long as the source of the damage remains, the sewage water will continue to spread and affect other areas, prolonging the time taken to repair the damage.
