Flood Damage Cleanup
Indoor flooding can cause serious, widespread damage in a home or building. Many furnishings and building materials like flooring, wood, and drywall are porous which means that standing water can quickly get absorbed and spread through these materials. Building materials that absorb too much water may buckle or swell which can lead to severe structural damage. Physical property damage is not the only concern with indoor flooding as it can also create unsanitary conditions in a home or building. It is possible for flood water to contain harmful microorganisms or sewage that can trigger infection and other health issues. Indoor flooding also creates a high risk of mold growth which can cause further damage to your home or building as well as serious health issues.

One source of indoor flooding that is very damaging and dangerous is a sewage backup. Sewage backups occur if the main line to the sewer from the home is clogged, causing wastewater to back up into the home. This water often contains human waste and dangerous bacteria that can lead to very serious health effects. If there is sewage water in your home, you are advised to stay away from it and call a professional immediately. At ServiceMaster by Monroe Restoration, we can safely and effectively clean up sewage backups. We will make sure all the water is removed with our water extraction and drying equipment and thoroughly disinfect the area so it can be used again safely.
