Florida Sewage Backup Cleaning Services

Restoring your peace of mind.

One of the worst things you can experience in your residential or commercial property in Southwest Florida is a sewer backup. A sewer backup occurs when a blockage prevents wastewater from flowing through the sewer line that connects your home to the municipal sanitary sewers. The obstruction will cause your sewer lines and drain pipes to fill up until it eventually overflows.

Sewage based flooding carries with it all of the same problems associated with water damage, such as long term structural damage due to the rotting of wood and rusting of metal, the proliferation of mold and other toxins in the aftermath, and the fact that the water will continue to wreak havoc and cause damage until it has been removed and every affected surface properly treated. The threat posed by sewage borne viruses, parasites, fungi, bacteria, and other elements water damage problem that your home or business can face.

Sewage Backup Cleaning Process

1. Initial Assessment and Free Estimate

After an initial assessment and free estimate, our experienced sewage cleanup technicians use professional-grade equipment to extract sewage and water, then they will dry out the entire area. We will remove the affected materials, sanitize and disinfect, prevent mold, deodorize, and restore your home or office to its original condition.

2. Remove Sewage and Water from the Affected Areas

We remove sewage and water from the affected areas. For larger sewage backups, we will pump out the affected area. For smaller jobs, we may use vacuums to suck up sewage and water. Depending on the specific damage, sewage and water extraction may take place after removal and disposal.

3. Inspect the Damage and Remove Materials that cannot be restored

We then inspect the damage and remove materials that cannot be restored. This may include structural materials like plaster, drywall, ceilings, carpeting, and carpet padding, as well as personal items contaminated by sewage. Unfortunately, furniture and some personal items may need to be discarded as well.

4. Disposing of Materials

After disposing of materials that cannot be restored, we use professional-grade air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out areas and materials that can be salvaged. We closely monitor our equipment to ensure the fastest drying time possible and to prevent further damage. Dry out may take several days depending on the extent of the damage.

5. Deodorize, Sanitize, and Disinfect

Once the area is dry, we thoroughly deodorize, sanitize, and disinfect the area to eliminate smells and prevent the growth of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and mold. In addition to structural materials like flooring, walls, and ceiling, we can also sanitize and deodorize salvageable materials.

6. Sewage Cleanup

The final step to sewage cleanup and restoration is rebuilding and restoring the area to the original condition. This may include hanging new drywall, laying new carpeting, and installing new cabinets. It may be necessary to replace damaged appliances or fix structural issues with your property as well.

Causes of Sewer Backups

Why you would hire a Water Damage Restoration Company

From storm flooding and backups to malfunctioning drainage systems, there are many causes to a sewage backup. No matter the cause, our IICRC certified technicians are here to clean up sewage backups and water damage of any size.

Clogged Sewer Lines

A build-up of solid materials in your main sewer line will prevent wastewater from flowing out to the municipal sewers. Clogs are typically caused by a combination of fats, oils, food waste, coffee grounds, hair, toilet paper, flushable wipes, and soap residue.

Tree Roots Growing in Sewer Lines

Tree roots can grow through sewer lines, causing a blockage. Once roots invade your sewer line, they must be cut out. Your sewer pipe may need to be repaired or replaced as well.

Cracked or Collapsed Sewer Lines

Sewer lines are durable, but they will deteriorate and even collapse over time. This can lead to a sewage backup in your yard or even into your home.

Gutters, Downspouts, and Sump Pumps Routed into Sewer Lines

Connecting gutters, downspouts, and sump pump to sewer lines may cause a sewage backup during heavy rains. Sewer lines are not designed to handle that amount of water, and they are likely to temporarily backup when overwhelmed.

Problems with Municipal Sewer Lines

Municipal sewers can also cause a sewage backup for all of these same reasons. While a municipal sewer backup is typically related to heavy rains, clogs and blockages can make the situation even worse.
