Experiencing water damage in your home can be a major problem if it is caused by a sewage backup or flooding that contains sewage water. Sewage backups occur when a blockage in the sewer line prevents the waste water from exiting your home, and if your home is affected by a natural flood, there is always a chance that the water could contain sewage. You must call a professional immediately if you suspect sewage in your home because any hesitation to remove it will result in significant property damage and serious health issues.

You can count on our professionals to remove every trace of the sewage water and restore the area to a safe and sanitary condition.
Excess water and moisture that contains sewage can cause considerable property damage by spreading through porous building materials like wood, flooring, insulation, and drywall. The absorption of sewage water by these materials leads to structural damage as the materials become weaker, and allows the dangerous toxins and microorganisms to spread. These microorganisms and toxins such as bacteria can cause serious health effects including infection or illness. This is why you must avoid contact with sewage water and call a professional that is licensed and equipped to safely clean it up.
