This job should be left to the professionals
Exposure to raw sewage puts you at risk for illness and infection.
Why HOW Restoration?
We are a local company with plenty of experience. Following Hurricane Sandy, owner Jason Hartley helped with damage restoration at hospitals, schools, and commercial & residential properties along the coast.
Unlike some other nationally franchised restoration companies, HOW Restoration provides reconstruction & storage services so you can work with one company for the entire clean up and restoration process.
Sewage Backups are Emergencies
The water may contain bacteria or viruses that can make us ill. Cleaning sewage and contaminated water requires a professionally trained team, very specific equipment, and additional sanitization.
When it comes to water damage, there are three types of contaminated water to look out for. Of course, an inspection from the professionals at HOW Reconstruction & Construction is necessary to positive identify each type and develop a plan to resolve the issue.
Types of Contaminated Water
This is water that comes from a leaking faucet or broken water source. While it may sound harmless enough, it can quickly become a more dangerous category of water if left untreated.
This is water that is contaminated and may make you ill. Gray water comes from washing machine overflow, dishwasher overflow, and toilet water containing urine. If left untreated, it can quickly degrade into black water.
Black water is severely contaminated and may cause extreme illness or death. It most often comes from flooding rivers, standing water, and feces-contaminated toilet bowls.
Sewage backup should always be treated as an emergency situation. Contact HOW Restoration immediately to begin sewage cleanup as quickly as possible. Our specialists have the experience and equipment necessary to get the job done quickly.
