Dealing with Black Water Damage
Sewer backup damage is particularly bad because it is caused by blackwater. Black Water is wastewater that contains harmful properties such as bacteria and organisms. When sewage backs up into your home, you not only have to deal with the normal problems associated with water damage, but you also run the risk of contamination and illness from harmful bacteria. Additionally, your freshwater supply may also be contaminated.
Sewer backups are also known to cause:
- Dangerous mold and mildew growth
- Contamination from bacteria
- Damage to flooring and carpets
- Water staining
- Structural damage
- Foundation damage
The first steps in restoring your home after a sewer backup are getting the water out, drying the affected areas, and disinfecting your home. Water damage from sewer backups is a leading cause of mold growth. As part of the restoration process, we may also recommend testing for mold. Should the inspection turn up mold, we provide mold removal services to ensure that the mold is remediated and you and your family are protected.
