Raw Sewage Clean up Project on B Avenue in Coronado
15 Minute Response Time at 2 in the Morning
When a raw sewage emergency occurs in the home, time is of the essence. As a homeowner, you will want to call your local water damage professionals as quickly as possible when a sewage or toilet backflow crisis is taking place. This is exactly what one Coronado resident did last week at 2am on Thursday morning.
When a pipe bursts or toilet backflows, many people panic and try to stop the flooding themselves. The correct course of action is calmly removing yourself and loved ones from the affected area and calling an experienced flood restoration company. If you want to be prepared at all times, we recommend saving the number of a local water damage company in your phone. These specialists should know how to handle raw sewage clean up emergencies and be available around the clock.
Our technicians here at San Diego Flood Restoration are ready to help with any raw sewage project you may have, and we are available 24/7. This Coronado client did exactly what a homeowner should do in this situation and called us immediately, even though it was 2 in the morning on a weekday. Water damage never happens at an opportune time, and it is our job to be ready when raw sewage clean up is needed. Water damage should always be dealt with as quickly as possible, but this is all the more true when raw sewage water is involved.
Raw sewage, also known in the industry as black water, is category 3 water damage most commonly caused by toilet backflow. Raw sewage water damage is more severe and causes more financial loss than clean water caused by a burst pipe. The pathogens and potential viruses contained in black sewage water is harmful to your health and can cause damage to your home that requires more sophisticated cleaning techniques. For example, damage to your carpet or carpet padding can sometimes be restored using a top-down or “in-place” drying technique. However, this is only true if the water is clean and the cleanup process begins within 24 hours of the initial damage. If the carpet is damaged as a result of raw sewage, it will almost certainly need to be replaced.
We are pleased that this B Avenue home in Coronado was restored quickly as a result of quick thinking on the part of the owner. By calling us at 2 in the morning, she prevented more serious damage to her home and allowed for a quicker raw sewage clean up process. When you respond to sewage water damage as quickly as possible, you do both yourself and your water damage company a favor.
