Sewage backup makes a big mess
When the sewage system backed up in to this home, it created a large mess for this family. The master bedroom, master bathroom, hallway, hall bathroom and bedroom were all affected. When sewage water invades a home special care has to be taken to ensure no one is adversely affected by the bacteria that can be present in the water. All porous building materials have to be removed, all areas treated with a biocide and then the remaining structure dried. In this case, the homeowner had carpeting in the bedrooms and the hallway. So, all the carpeting and pad had to be removed and then the concrete floor underneath treated along with the tile floors in the bathrooms as well. All contents that might have been affected had to be removed and either discarded or cleaned and treated. This customer was glad they called SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock to make sure this particular job was handled professionally and correctly.
