Benefits of Hiring a Professional
Even the most experienced DIYer is out of their depth when it comes to
sewage cleanup. When the source of water damage is raw sewage, everything
becomes more urgent, complex, and hazardous.
Just some of the benefits of hiring a professional restoration crew to
clean up your sewage mess include:
1. Biohazard Elimination
We can’t state enough that this type of water is teeming with germs and
bacteria that can make someone very sick. A professional crew has specific
experience with this type of cleanup. They’ll have safety protocols in
place and professional equipment to safely eliminate the dirty water.
2. Problem Assessment
Restoration companies are properly trained to quickly assess the situation
they are walking into. The crew will examine the surroundings to find
possible leak causes without you having to investigate on your own.
3. Powerful Equipment
As a professional crew, they will have access to the best cleaning
products and equipment available. Standard vacuums and dryers cannot stand
up against a sewage backup situation. The professionals will have special
gear and protection to prevent infection.
4. Lower Losses
Restoration companies are trained to work fast. The sooner the water is
removed and the affected area is dried, the less damage is likely to occur
to your business. Restoring the area right away also reduces damage to
flooring, walls, and furniture, eliminating long-term issues such as mold
growth. In the long run, your total losses will be much lower than if you
dealt with it on your own.
5. Quick Results
It only takes 12-24 hours for significant damage to start taking place in
the affected area. While you might now have the ability to deal with the
situation promptly, professional restoration companies are ready to work
immediately. Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the professionals
can be quickly dispatched to take action and minimize damage to your
