Repairing Toilet Water Damage
Overflow from your toilet can fall into one of two categories: gray water or black water. Neither is ideal, but black water is decidedly worse. Black water typically contains feces or sewage, and with those qualities come a variety of hazardous microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, and parasites.
That’s why toilet and sewage water cleanup requires an IICRC certified staff. A sewage backup doesn’t only damage your home; it poses a threat to your health. You need qualified sewage cleanup experts to remove the sewage safely and sanitize the area properly.
You also save yourself time and money when you choose a sewage water cleanup company that includes damage repair in their services. The staff at 911 Restoration of Connecticut know how to inspect for destruction in the structures of your home or business. They recognize wood that has been weakened or compromised by toilet water and carpet that has been contaminated by sewage. They inspect sheetrock and drywall. They come armed with the tools and knowledge to repair whatever damages they discover. In the end, you’re left with a property that’s in even better shape than it was before the sewage backup ever occurred.
Though the most obvious disadvantages of a backup are immediately easy to pinpoint, the truth is that sewage water damage often goes deeper than you realize.
If your property has been flooded with sewage water, contact 911 Restoration for comprehensive repair.
Beyond Sewage Removal
What many people don’t realize is that a sewage water backup can lead to complex and lasting damage if great care is not taken to fully restore the area immediately after the backup occurs.
One common problem following a sewage backup is the cultivation of mold. Once a surface has been exposed to moisture, mold spores only need 24-48 hours to establish a thriving colony. Many people correctly worry about mold growth in their carpets and on sheetrock. A lesser known risk, however, lies in concrete floors.
If your sewage backup occurred in your basement, you can count on the sewage cleanup team at 911 Restoration to prevent future mold growth by fully drying and dehumidifying your concrete floor. Concrete is more sponge-like than we tend to think, soaking up moisture and holding it. Then that dampness rises to the surface and creates the ideal breeding ground for mold.
Your sewage cleanup specialists don’t just take measures to prevent growth. They also complete restoration by offering a free visual mold inspection for property owners. They look over the entire affected area to ensure no colonies have begun to form. If they do find contamination, they conduct total mold remediation, eliminating the problem altogether.
The staff at 911 Restoration truly does see to your every need, from sewage removal to mold sampling. They even assist with insurance. A knowledgeable staff member will gladly walk you through your insurance coverage and file your claim for you, so you can be sure you get the exact coverage you are entitled to.
A sewage water backup is a property owner’s nightmare, but 911 Restoration promises to leave your home or business feeling like a dream. Call us today and let our sewage cleanup experts give you a Fresh Start.
