Sewage Cleanup and Restoration

There is a large mix of old and new residential properties in the Hingham and surrounding areas. One day we might be removing drywall that is wet, the next day might be sucking sewage out or a bathroom. Both of those jobs are treated differently. Because of the bacteria SERVPRO of Weymouth & Hingham will wear personal protective gear for the cleanup process. We are very experienced to know how to dry the home the correct way when it has been flooded with sewage. We understand that you want to be back in your home as quickly as possible but it is necessary to properly remove the damaged materials and disinfect your home. We do the job right the first time so you don't have to worry about your home.

Sewage Backup or Toilet Overflow? Call Us Today – (781) 337-0344

There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of Weymouth & Hingham will inspect that contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response to safely restore your home or business.

The three types of contaminated water:

Category 1: "Clean Water"

This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.

  • Water from a clean source like a broken water line
  • If left untreated, can degrade into category 2 or 3

Category 2: "Gray Water"

This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

  • May contain bacteria and viruses
  • Can quickly degrade into category 3 if left untreated

Category 3: "Black Water"

This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3 water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

  • May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
  • Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup
