Sewage, Storms, SERVPRO!
In the event of heavy rain, water and debris can easily enter sewers which can cause overloads. Along with water, sewage can back up into your home. When this type of backup happens, these sewage flood waters are extremely hazardous to you and your family. It’s important to handle these backups carefully. Make sure to notify the city or town you live in if your home is connected to a public sewer.
If the flooding is due to city water, it’s likely that the water will begin to recede when the rain stops. However, your basement will need to be cleaned and sanitized. Handling this type of back up yourself is risky and requires extensive personal protective equipment, such as gloves, boots and face masks.
The technicians at SERVPRO of Dartmouth/New Bedford are specially trained and fully equipped to handle this type of clean up. Sewer backups should be considered an emergency, as the water can contain viruses, bacteria and other microbes that can cause serious illness to you or your family.
We can help you dispose of items that are impacted by the water, clean the floors, walls and other surfaces and perform demolition or removal of wet floors, rugs and walls as needed. Call SERVPRO of Dartmouth/New Bedford at any time, day or night if you need assistance with sewage clean up.
