No homeowner ever wanted to deal with a sewer cleanup. But it happens, and when it does it's good to know that help is nearby. An experienced water damage restoration company in Hingham, MA, has seen it all before and will know what steps to take. A team can arrive at your home in a few hours and begin to get to work right away. The first step will be to make sure the scene is safe and that no one is in danger of touching contaminated water or of encountering a damaged electrical system. From there, technicians will conduct an inspection and assessment of the situation. This will be followed by a plan that takes into account industry best practices and professional cleaning standards.

The Proven Process for Sewer Cleanup

While each situation is different, trained and certified technicians will adhere to a process that works in nearly all cases of water damage to a home. The general outline is as follows:

  • Inspection and assessment
  • Water removal and extraction
  • Drying and dehumidifying
  • Cleaning and sanitizing
  • Restoration

Specialized equipment such as powerful vacuums and air dryers may be needed for certain tasks. With a sewer backup, special attention is paid to cleaning and sanitizing all affected areas and materials. Surfaces will be cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized and materials that are too damaged will be replaced.

The Benefits of Quick Action
Any water damage calls for a fast response. The longer water is allowed to saturate materials, the more harm is bound to happen, and this is especially true for a sewer cleanup. Any event where contaminated water is released into a home, whether it be from a flood or from a flooded toilet, time is of the essence. A quick response can prevent dirty water from spreading into new areas and ruining additional items. It will limit expenses and speed up the recovery time.
