Portage County Cleans Up After Sewer Back Up
SERVPRO of Portage County understands the importance of cleaning and sanitizing your property after a sewer backup. Removing standing water and solid waste is the most critical stage of cleanup. The longer black water is left unattended, the higher the risk for damage to building materials and contents.
After standing water has been removed, the area exposed to contaminated water should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. This step is critical for reducing contagion and mold risks.
The affected area must be completely dry before restoration can proceed. Any residual moisture in a structure when rebuilding starts can increase the risk of mold growth.
Depending on the severity of damage caused by a flooded toilet or sewer backup at a building in Portage County it may take damage mitigation experts up to 3 days to progress through all of these stages.
