Sewage Back-Up; Salem, MA

Ever hear about Thanksgiving meals causing an increase in sewage back-up? Recently awareness was called to the proper way to dispose of all the leftover grease during Thanksgiving family celebrations, in fact there’s a 60% increase in calls to clear sewage blocks in the days following Thanksgiving. ServiceMaster Elite has been cleaning up homes and businesses over the past few weeks, a result of plumbing back ups and clogs. In fact, we recently cleaned up a basement in Salem, MA that had several inches of raw standing sewage, a result of a grease clogged main plumbing line.

It is imperative that clogs are cleared before sewage back-up restoration companies like ServiceMaster Elite responds, this will ensure that no further damage will be done. It is also important that you are aware that sewage water is a grossly contaminated source that can cause significant risk to your health. ServiceMaster Elite has water damage certified technicians who understand the proper way to remove, clean, sanitize and dispose of sewage waters.

We will immediately respond and set up protection such as containment, personal protective gear, and hepa rated air scrubbers. We will then extract any raw standing sewage using specialized truck mounted machines. We will even haul away and appropriately dispose of all the standing sewage water. Next, we will complete a steam cleaning and detailed extraction of any materials that were touched by sewage, this allows for a clean environment to work. If any materials such as carpet and sheetrock have soaked up raw sewage, we will also remove these building materials. The final steps are treating all affected surfaces with antimicrobial cleaners, detailed cleaning with heated water, and installation of drying equipment.
