After a long day at work, the last thing you want to come home to is a flooded basement. But it could be worse; that flood could be caused by a backed up sewer pipe, meaning raw sewage is seeping into your basement. If this is the case, the last thing you have to worry about is water damage. Sewage contains bacteria and other microorganisms that can cause serious health issues for you and your family. Even if the water doesn’t appear to be dirty, it can contain up to three million bacteria per teaspoon!
So if you are ever the unfortunate victim of a home flood caused by a damaged, clogged, or broken sewer pipe, call a professional water and sewage cleanup company – like Atlantic Environmental Solutions – as soon as possible. They will not only be able to clean up the mess, but they will also sanitize and deodorize your home, restoring it to its former glory.
A professional sewage remediation company will do the follow:
Remove the sewage and standing water.
- Dry carpets and furniture and remove anything beyond repair.
- Steam clean and disinfect the affected area.
- Dry ceilings and walls with specialized equipment.
- Remove all excess moisture from the damaged area.
- Deodorize. This is especially essential in sewage restoration.
- Inspect for mold.
- Remove mold (if needed).
Before you know it, your home will be as good as new. This is as long as you trust your home restoration to a company with years of experience, like Atlantic Environmental Solutions.
Sewage damage is hazardous. If left untreated, it is possible for the bacteria to be transmitted throughout your home or business by simple contact with clothing or shoes.
