Sewage Cleanup >> Water Damage

Because it can flow, Water Damage has the unique capability to carry with it a wide variety of hazardous pathogens and allergens that are harmful to humans. In the best of worlds, our buildings would be designed so that flooding could never occur.

  1. But, we live in the real world and Water Damage sometimes gets out of control in every one of our buildings. When a water emergency does occur, a quick reaction to seepage, spillage, flooding, or sewage backups has many benefits.  A quick reaction usually saves valuable property from direct water damage as well as the destruction from dangerous microbial growth. The longer that any kind of water damage will go untreated, the greater the damage to your building. An immediate response to a flood water emergency saves time and money, and protects your property and health.

  4.  A small amount of contamination time has occurred. An example of this situation might be the toilet overflows in a bathroom and is deposited on and confined to a tile floor. In this situation, there is a small amount of waste, which is contained and does not come into contact with absorbent materials. The Water Damage and decontamination, which will include some water extraction, cleaning, and disinfection, could be effective in reducing this particular health risk.
