If you had a major sewage backup problem in your home or place of business, what would you do? A backed up or broken sewage drain pipe means you not only have water damage on your premises, but you now have a critical health hazard. A business can be seriously compromised by a sewage or drain pipe emergency. Carpeting and its underlying foam touched by this kind of water become unusable. If the break happens in a basement, anything stored down there will be contaminated and have to be thrown out.
You must call a professional sewage extraction company right away. If you put it off, things may get worse very quickly for your family, home or business is far too valuable. The water can do plenty of damage on its own like ruin wood, drywall, and fabric. However, if it’s sewage or drain water, you have a smelly cesspool on your floor, a small lake filled with dangerous micro-organisms and toxic components, creating an unhealthy living or working environment.

Also, preventative steps will be taken to restore and protect your residence or business in the long-term.
Step 1 – Locate and Repair the Blockage/Breakage
The first thing to do is repair the problem area. If necessary, our team will excavate and replace the damaged portion with new pipes. If the event is caused by an obstruction blocking the water flow then powerful hydro-jets can be snaked into the pipeline to clear the blockage.
Step 2 – Cleaning up Sewage Water
Next, the sewage or drain water inside the premises will be pumped out and the area cleaned thoroughly. All excess water will be removed from the premises using truck-mounted pumps. Anything this type of contaminated water has come into contact with is unusable and must be transported for appropriate disposal. Any carpeting or other saturated contents will have to be removed along with any affected drywall or wallpaper that has been touched by the water. The exposed floors and walls in affected areas are scrubbed with powerful detergents and sanitizers. Finally, strong industrial fans and dehumidifiers are brought in to push the excess moisture out of the affected area.
Step 3 – Inspecting the Premises
Residence or business, we use professional-grade technology such as infrared cameras, hydrometers, and other moisture detectors to check for possible mold. The instruments find hidden pockets of moisture within the walls, ceiling, under floors or other places that molds might grow. Toxic molds only need a place with excess moisture, oxygen, and an organic surface. When excess moisture is absorbed by common materials like wood, fabric, paper, or cardboard, it creates an environment where hazardous microbes can multiply.
A colony of biohazards such as black mold can lay hidden in moist enclosed spaces for long periods of time before the first symptoms are spotted. As the infestation grows and spreads to other parts of the home or business, they create an unhealthy environment. They will provide a feasible bid to remediate these areas.
Step 4 – Mold Remediation
Our certified team will sanitize the problem areas thoroughly with high-grade antimicrobial products and detergents specially formulated to destroy mold, mildew, and other biohazards. The infested area must be treated properly to stop the spread and prevent the infestation from recurring.
Step 5 – Restoration
The next step in our procedure will be restoring your premises to a quality at least equal to what it was before the incident began. The portions of insulation, drywall, and other ruined components will be replaced with fresh materials. Our main goal is to get the pieces of your life back together so that your family can get back to their familiar routines or your employees can get back to being productive for your company. With everything cleaned and sanitized your home or business has been brought back up to local health codes to provide a clean and safe living or working environment.
Step 6 – Final Inspections
At this point in the process, we will conduct our final inspection of your property to ensure that all contaminated areas have been fully cleaned and restored and the secondary biohazards remediated. Then you will be given a walk-through of the affected areas and shown the process we underwent to restore your property, from the sewage line that was blocked or broken to the last nook and cranny where moisture had created a potential hazard. Please, feel free to ask any questions about our process.
Step 7 – Helping With Insurance Claims
Finally, we will help with the insurance claim process. Most insurance companies in our service area are familiar with The Restoration Team and work well with us. We will provide accurate evidence that shows the conditions of your basement before and after the extraction and restoration process. We will also provide the proper documentation detailing our restoration procedures.
Be aware that it is unlawful for an insurance company to stipulate which company to use during this time. Feel free to do your research and choose a professional company with a proven track record of success, like The Remediation Team.
