Water Cleanup In Your Farmington Basement

water damaged home SERVPRO of The Farmington Valley at (860) 675-4500 can handle any size water cleanup.

Worst Case Scenario in Farmington Basement Water Cleanup

Trees are beautiful in a yard; however, the roots have the potential to cause water damage to the sewer pipes. The roots naturally seek the water in the pipes, and eventually, blockages happen. This situation can create terrible backups of black water into homes.

A homeowner needed water cleanup in a Farmington finished basement due to a large amount of overflow from a toilet. A plumber traced the issue to tree roots blocking the sewage pipes, and while that repair happened, SERVPRO techs worked on restoring the home.

Stopping Sewage Contamination
SERVPRO techs advised the homeowner to avoid contact with the contaminated water in the basement. Upon arrival wearing safety gear, the techs put up containment to ensure airborne particles did not affect the rest of the home.

Water Extraction Safety
When contaminants of any type are present in the water, the technicians wear personal protection equipment and ensure that the water gets ported away safely for disposal. Ventilation is also an essential part of the mitigation process, and air scrubbers run throughout the restoration to ensure the capture of airborne particulates.

Controlled Demo of Contaminated Materials
In many types of water loss, items have the potential for drying and cleaning for reuse. However, in the case of sewage, building materials, and porous items compromised by the water are generally not restorable to sanitary conditions.

Cleaning and Restoration
After drying, the technicians use their professional-grade cleaning agents to remove all traces of bacteria and microbes left behind. They have solutions specially formulated to clean the concrete floors and the masonry on the walls, leaving them renewed and sanitized.

Removal of Sewage Odors
While the removal of the water and drying goes a long way towards lowering the strong smell of sewage, SERVPRO technicians have numerous odor control applications to eradicate any residual odors left behind entirely.
