Sewer Backup in Crawl Space in Hayward

5/14/2020 (Permalink)

When we think about water damage we often think that it is rainwater, floodwater, a broken pipe that causes water damage, not sewage backup.  This is not something that anyone wants to deal with especially when it comes to sewage.  At SERVPRO of Hayward, our crews are properly trained and certified for the removal and cleaning of sewage backup. Shown here is one of our technicians at SERVPRO of Hayward wearing all the proper PPE gear to enter the crawl space and the cleaning product to disinfect the area properly.  This sewage backup, fortunately, occurred in the crawlspace which was contained there, some other instances we have seen have been directly in the basement which usually causes major damage to the home, requiring the resident to leave for a period of time as cleanup happens so no contamination occurs.  If you have water damage due to sewer backup give us a call at 715-634-0699 for proper service from SERVPRO of Hayward.
