Handling Commercial Sewage Loss
SERVPRO® offers specialized expertise in dealing with various types of property damage, including commercial sewage loss. When a commercial property experiences sewage backups, leaks, or other sewage-related issues, it can lead to significant health hazards and property damage. SERVPRO® has teams trained to handle these situations efficiently and safely. Here's how they typically approach commercial sewage loss scenarios:
Assessment: A team of SERVPRO® experts will assess the extent of the sewage damage. This involves evaluating the affected areas, identifying the source of the sewage problem, and assessing the potential risks to health and property.
Safety Measures: Dealing with sewage requires careful safety precautions. SERVPRO® teams will implement appropriate safety measures, such as wearing protective gear and isolating the affected areas to prevent the spread of contaminants.
Containment and Extraction: The next step involves containing the sewage-contaminated areas to prevent further spread. SERVPRO® will then use specialized equipment to extract standing sewage water and clean up the affected surfaces.
Cleaning and Sanitization: After the sewage water is removed, the affected areas need thorough cleaning and disinfection to eliminate bacteria, viruses, and potential pathogens. SERVPRO® uses professional-grade cleaning agents to ensure the area is properly sanitized.
Drying and Restoration: Once the cleaning process is complete, SERVPRO® will use industrial-grade dehumidifiers and air movers to thoroughly dry the area. Depending on the extent of damage, they may also conduct restoration work to repair or replace damaged materials.
Odor Removal: Sewage damage often comes with unpleasant odors. SERVPRO® has tools and techniques to address odor issues and ensure the affected area smells clean and fresh again.
Documentation: SERVPRO® provides detailed documentation of the entire process, including before-and-after photos, which is important for insurance claims and future reference.
Coordination: SERVPRO® works closely with property owners, insurance companies, and other relevant parties to ensure a smooth restoration process.
Commercial sewage loss can have serious implications for both health and business operations. By entrusting the restoration process to professionals like SERVPRO®, you can minimize the risks and get your commercial property back to a safe and functional state as quickly as possible.
Keep in mind that specific procedures may vary based on the nature of the sewage damage, the property type, and the local regulations. It's essential to reach out to professionals promptly to assess the situation and determine the appropriate course of action.
