If you are experiencing sewage or backup problems, give us a call. We can resolve the issue quickly so you can get back to your normal schedule as soon as possible. Below are answers to some of the most common questions we receive about these types of problems.
What is sewage & backup cleaning?
Sewage and backup cleaning removes sewage and other waste materials from a home or business. This can be done in multiple ways with various professional and standard equipment, including manually with a plunger or using a sewage ejector pump. It is important to note sewage and backup cleaning should only be performed by trained professionals, as it can be very dangerous if not done correctly.
The 3 Categories of Water
There are three categories of water: clean, gray, and black. Clean water is typically from a clean source like a faucet or toilet. Gray water is slightly dirty and may contain soap residue or food particles. Finally, black water is the most dangerous and contains sewage, chemical waste, or other hazardous materials.
What are the dangers of untreated water damage?
If water damage is not treated properly, it can lead to several serious problems, such as mold growth, structural damage, and even major health issues. Untreated water damage can also lead to increased fire risk or electrocution.
The longer water damage is left untreated, the more it damages, making it more difficult to restore. Give us a call as soon as you detect water damage or sewage so we can begin the clean-out and repair process as soon as possible.
What should you do after a sewage backup?
If you experience a sewage backup, it is important to call us away. Do not try to clean it yourself, as this can be dangerous. Instead, try to remove any valuable items like electronics from the area and stay away from any standing water. Items removed from the water damaged or flooded area sooner have a better chance of being restored.
Once we arrive, we assess the situation and begin the cleaning process.
Do I need to contact a restoration company for sewage and backup problems?
Yes, you should always contact us for your sewage and backup problems. We are trained professionals who know how to safely clean and repair any damage caused by sewage and water, in addition to cleaning and fixing the problem with the sewage lines. Trying to do it yourself can be dangerous and worsen the problem.
We understand dealing with sewage and water damage can be a stressful experience. Our goal is to help make the process as smooth and easy as possible for you. We work quickly and efficiently to get your home or business back to normal.
