What is Involved in Sewage Clean Up?

No one relishes the idea of finding raw sewage backing up into their home. Whether the sewage is the result of flood waters, clogged pipes or another issue, quick and thorough clean up is a must. Not sure what the process involves? This is what happens from the moment you call us for help:

1. We show up right away.

At Premier, we understand that disasters can happen at any time of the day or night. There is no reason to wait until morning to call us. We are available to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We show up 60 to 90 minutes after your call. Our uniformed technicians arrive in clean, marked vehicles ready to do the job.

2. We assess the damage.

Every water removal and clean up job we do starts with a free moisture analysis and damage assessment. We will let you know how serious the damage is and what we recommend to remediate it.

3. We remove both salvageable and unsalvageableĀ furniture from the area.

We’ll let you know which items can be saved and which we will need to dispose of safely. Carpet and padding, for instance, must be removed and destroyed when they have been contaminated with sewage or other black water.

4. We remove all waste water and sewage from the area.

We don protective clothing and begin removal of any dangerous liquids from the area. It is vital that you avoid contact with areas that are contaminated with feces and other waste, as they can carry dangerous contagions.

5. We clean and disinfect the area.

Mold and bacteria can linger behind after sewage is removed. We ensure that the area is fully cleaned and disinfected to ensure that the area is safe and habitable for your family. Our cleaning job also includes deodorizing to avoid any lingering scents.

6. We dry the area.

Our specialty equipment helps ensure that all moisture is removed. Water can seep into floors, behind your cabinets and past your walls. If it is not thoroughly removed, it can allow mold and bacteria to grow. Excess moisture can also damage drywall and wood, leading to costly repairs.

7. We test the area for moisture and contaminants.

After the job is done, we ensure that there is no danger remaining. Our work is guaranteed and we do a thorough job to ensure that you only need emergency sewage clean up and water removal once.

If a sewage leak gets into your home, it is important to call professional clean up crews as quickly as possible. We can take care of the mess and ensure that your home and your family stay safe.
