The Backstory of the Backup

Recently, a local business contacted our team to conduct water damage restoration caused by a sewage backup. A sewage backup is an overflow of waste from a sewage system.

Initially, the business owner called another company to perform the restoration. However, the company’s technicians followed improper protocols by attempting to dry the affected areas rather than removing them.

According to the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards, a sewage backup is a category three loss. A category three loss states that porous materials, such as drywall, that have come into contact with sewage should be removed and the area treated. Absorbent materials trap contaminants and pathogens, causing further damage and possibly illness in people.

An After-Hours Water Damage Restoration

We first used moisture meters to determine moisture levels in the walls and to locate any areas that may have had water damage.

Next, our skilled technicians removed the baseboards to uncover some of the damage.

Then, we removed the drywall to analyze any remaining wet areas that were previously unseen. It is crucial to pinpoint all water damage because, if left untreated, mold can grow.

With the drywall out of our way, our crew utilized state-of-the-art PuroClean equipment and cleaning solution to disinfect the area of any pathogens and contaminants that may have been present.

The clean and sanitized baseboards.

When our restoration work concluded, the property was ready for a general contractor to take the reins and replace the baseboard.

Because of our client’s business hours, we worked evenings and on a Sunday to limit the disruption to the business. Our client was pleased that we were able to accommodate their schedule. Our hardworking technicians displayed an extraordinary level of expertise throughout the restoration process. Great work, team!
