Hi, this is Travis Chancey with
Abbotts Cleanup & Restoration Customers ask: why should I hire a
professional sewage cleanup service? There is definitely a problem when you
have sewage water at your property because that water is grossly contaminated and it does cause more damage than a typical water loss that is clean water. Contaminated water like sewage definitely needs to be cleanup up properly. What we do if it’s an organic substrate like carpet, pad, baseboards, tack strip, drywall… those items have to be thrown away according to industry standard for category 3 water: sewage water. Clean water is category 1 and category 2 is like a dishwasher or washing machine. Category 3 is contaminated sewage water and we need to follow certain standards. Most homeowners or property owners with commercial property don’t know… They don’t know that sewage water is different than clean water situation. Obviously it smells different and some people think you can clean it, do carpet cleaning and do things that we used to do 30 – 40 years ago. Now we know, by the book, it needs to be done right so you don’t have a huge mold issue. Mold tends to grow a lot faster when you are dealing with sewage water. That’s why it’s so important to get it done quickly and done by a professional service. So you can can get that peace of mind. Then also you get a certificate from the restoration company. We give you a certificate so that when you sell the property down the road, everything is certified and done right so you don’t have any issues with the transaction when you do sell the property.
