The Dangers of a Toilet Backup in Durham

Water containing sewage is a hazard for your customers and employees, call SERVPRO to clean and sanitize your Durham Property.

A water damage big enough to close the business for cleanup is always severe. Wet floors can lead to slip and fall accidents, foul odors, and if left too long, mold can become an issue. When the water contains sewage, the damage can be more significant as anything absorbed by the water requires disposal as a biohazard. That is why it is crucial to outsource the tasks of cleanup and sanitation to a professional restoration services company.

What are the Damages I Can Expect After a Commercial Water Damage With Sewage?

SERVPRO technicians handling commercial water damage in Durham businesses keep safety at a maximum and damages as minimal as possible. They move out items within the area that can be cleaned and sanitized for reuse. The most common damages to a structure and contents are:

  • Portions of sheetrock that wicked contaminated water
  • Seepage under tile flooring
  • Stored items or stock

How Does the Water Cleanup Process Work?

SERVPRO techs work to limit the upheaval that can come with the mitigation process, and they work hard to extract the water and dry the contents of the business in place as much as possible.

  • Chairs may get removed while desks get placed on blocks
  • Datacenter and network equipment might get removed off-site for testing before reuse if it was within the affected area
  • Non-porous items get inspected for hand cleaning and sanitizing for reuse to lessen the cost of replacement items

The technicians extract any remaining water and solid waste. They then scope the property to determine all areas of water migration, and this action ensures nothing gets left behind. After drying, the techs thoroughly sanitize the property with antibacterial and antimicrobial cleaning agents, so it is safe for employees and customers.

SERVPRO of North Durham at (919) 467-0880 has certified techs that bring the latest equipment and use advanced methods to perform commercial water damage cleanup and get your business reopened quickly.
