Sewage damage can be the most dangerous type of water damage that there is. When you have water damage, you are dealing with contaminated water. Still, with sewer damage, you are dealing with a toxic level of contamination that can be hazardous to your health. If you need residential sewage cleanup in San Diego, our suggestion is to first call the professionals at Hometown Restoration in to help, and then also vacate your home to clean and sanitize it for you to make it safe again.
How we treat residential sewage cleanup is very similar to how we treat to clean up after a flood – one of the first steps is water removal. But because we are dealing with sewage, we often have to use special vacs and machines to safely remove the water. There are three types of contaminated water, and when we assess your property, we have to determine the level of contamination we are dealing with. There is clean water, gray water, and black water. While clean water may sound clean, it’s just the first level of contaminated water in the cleanup industry.
After we assess your level and remove excess water from your home, we then dry and dehumidify your home. We do this because there is always a chance for mold to grow, which is another toxin where there is excess moisture. Next come the cleaning and sanitization step, which is the most important piece. This is where we work on making your home safe again so that you can feel comfortable knowing there are no more harmful bacteria.
There is a chance your home may need restoration. If it does, we will attend to this as well. This may include drywall replacement, carpet and floor replacement, painting, and other repairs to get your home back to its original condition.
