A sewer backup can cause extensive damage to your residential or commercial property and can be extremely unpleasant to deal with. A sewer backup is categorized as a type 3 water damage, which means that this type of water contains pathogenic agents that can cause serious harm if exposed or ingested. When dealing with a sewage backup, an immediate response is required from a professional water damage restoration company. Sewage contains contaminants that may lead to serious diseases and therefore, effective sanitation, cleaning and restoration of the entire affected area must be executed by professionals.
The cost of a sewer backup cleanup can start from $500 and up. Sewer backups can be costly due to the amount of cleaning, restoration, equipment and time is required. When dealing with a sewer backup, anything that has been touched by the sewage must be removed. A thorough cleanup and proper restoration is required when dealing with sewage damage.
