SERVPRO Helps Carry Out Challenging Tasks Including Sewage Cleanup after Flooding

Flooding can cause significant soiling or contamination in your business premises, especially when there is a sewage backup. In such cases, cleaning must eliminate all trace contaminants from surfaces, contents, or any other materials to fully restore flood damage.

The restoration challenge is more significant if the flood damage in your New London property involves sewage. In addition to the difficulties of removing waste materials, there is also a risk of exposure to hazardous materials. SERVPRO professionals are equipped with the necessary PPE like boots, rubber gloves, bodysuits, and respirators fitted with P100/organic vapor cartridges.

Professional flood restoration helps eliminate the need for separate:

  • Biohazard remediation
  • Cleaning company
  • Disinfecting companies

Before starting the cleanup process, SERVPRO sends crew chiefs to the loss site to inspect the extent of the loss. In most cases, sewage backups affect bathroom areas where it might be simpler to do cleanups since floors and walls are tiled. However, if the floodwater spreads to other sections, different materials might complicate an already challenging task.

Various resources that help clean a flooded property include:

  • Plastic shovels for removing solid waste
  • Pressure washers to agitate soiled areas
  • Antimicrobials and other chemical agents to remove contaminants

Our SERVPRO technicians prioritize the removal of solid wastes. We tear down any porous materials affected by the sewage since decontamination cannot restore sanitary conditions. After finishing cleaning, we also deodorize to eliminate any bad smells.
