Sewage water can be very dangerous to try to remove without the proper equipment.  Sewage water is contaminated with hazardous waste and bacteria that can spread infection and illness.  Exposure to the standing water and excess moisture can cause building materials like carpeting and drywall to weaken, discolor, and warp.  Sewage water can also leave behind a foul odor on structural materials and furnishings.

Long term exposure to the water can lead to mold growth.  Mold can cause even more extensive damage to the structural materials if not addressed in a timely manner and will need to be removed through mold remediation services.

Frequently Asked Questions About Water Damage

Yes, in general, a standard homeowners insurance policy provides coverage for sudden and accidental damage that originates from within your home. However, it's important to note that you may not be covered if the water damage is a result of external flooding or neglecting necessary repairs.

Fire Damage Restoration
Rating 5 5 Star Disaster Restoration Rating

“A client/friend’s house caught fire the other day and every time this happens, it is always a very traumatic experience. The devastation on their faces and their be-wilderness is a very common reaction. The feeling of loss and being lost is understandable, so it is during these occasions where I have to be there for them.

The first thing I did was to calm them down and called Servicemaster. They do mostly restoration and clean up after a fire/flood/water damage etc. They are not general contractors. They only clean up, restore, and house your personal belongings at their storage facility. They will store it there until the house is back to live able condition. Best of all……….the insurance company will pay for it.

They can usually get to a place within 3 hours of the loss. They are very efficient.”
