What do I need to know about Sewer Damage?

Professionals are best suited for sewer damage.

  1. Sewer water is considered "black water" and is grossly contaminated.
  2. All sewers are connected unless you have your own septic tank.
  3. Sewage damage is covered by insurance 90% of the time.
  4. Flooring must be replaced along with wet building materials.

When all the contaminated materials are removed and disposed of the technicians will pressure wash and disinfect the left over materials, including the concrete and studs. Technicians do the cleanup in full personal protective clothing: masks, goggles, gloves, body suit, and rubber boots. The safety of the technicians is vitally important during a sewer loss.
