The Water Damage Restoration Process
If you're dealing with sewage back up, there are different issues to take into consideration. Unlike fresh water, when a sewage line or extractor pump leaves contaminated water in your home or business, bacteria and other harmful contaminants could be present that can lead to health problems.
For homes the actual damage may not be so bad, and it can leave behind some not so pleasant smells....but for larger buildings that may be located in a city or downtown area, damage can come in all sizes, particularly when you are dealing with a main city sewage line!
These can cause not only terrible odors, but huge cleanups as well. Whether a small or large scale backup, SERVPRO of LaGrange/Burr Ridge/Hinsdale is ready to dive in to get the waste out!
Extracting whatever kind of waste is present is the first priority, followed by extreme power washing to make sure no residue is left behind. Finally, after everything is washed and wiped down its time to get rid of that smell. Using special chemicals that are made to rid the area of the smell and keep it that way are the specialty of SERVPRO of LaGrange/Burr Ridge/Hinsdale, so let us do the dirty work!
