Dealing with water damage on your property is difficult enough, but when that water has been contaminated by sewage it becomes downright dangerous! Nearly every property owner will have to face some sort of water damage during their lifetime; it is the most common form of property damage that occurs. Water damage is often very hard to treat without professional help because it can get into everything: between walls, underneath floors, and behind appliances. It causes your plaster to bubble and flake, drywall to swell and crumble, wood to rot and laminates to peel and buckle. In short, water damage can be a complete disaster in any home or office. Now, introduce the presence of biohazardous materials into the mix, and the entire scenario becomes a nightmare! Sewage leaks require specialized cleanup. The service technicians at Element Restoration Group are all highly trained in safe, effective sewage cleanup procedures. We have the experience and the specialized equipment to safely approach, remove excess water, sanitize and treat the affected areas safely, quickly, and as thoroughly as possible.
While it may be tempting to use over the counter products and attempt to remediate the situation yourself, the introduction of contaminated water can have unforeseen and widespread consequences to your property. The IICRC classifies water that has been contaminated as Category 3, or “grossly unsanitary”. Category 3 water can contain parasites, fungi, and disease-causing bacteria—just to name a few. The worst part is, dangerous Category 3 water can come from sources other than your bathroom pipes. Sources can include toilet overflow and sewer backup, but also flooding from rivers and streams, or even stagnant puddles. Because of the health risks, the only safe solution is to contact the IICRC certified professionals at Element Restoration Group for a complete assessment and remediation of your water problem. If the source of your water damage is unknown, or you suspect that the water has been contaminated by outside sources or sewer pipes, our service teams are available to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We handle all types of emergency water damage, and there is no job too big or too small. Complete customer satisfaction is important to us, and that is why we spend the time, effort, and money to ensure that anyone we send out on a job is prepared not only with the training, but the best possible equipment for the job.
In addition to concerns about health hazards, any situation involving water damage or saturation by any category of water can lead to a host of other problems around your property. Water damage doesn’t always come in the form of a dramatic flood. It can happen for a variety of reasons. Harsh temperatures can cause dramatic temperature differentials between inside and outside walls—this can lead to condensation, which can be extremely damaging over long periods of time. Water causes wood to swell, and when the framing of your home or office begins to buckle and rot, you’ve got a serious problem. In addition to that mess, there is the possibility of mold. Mold enjoys damp, humid climates, and any instance of water damage is like rolling out the red carpet for mold and mildew. Following the first incident of water damage, mold can colonize the affected area in as little as 48 to 72 hours. That is no time at all, especially if your water damage has gone undetected. At Element Restoration Group we also provide mold detection and removal services. The introduction of mold into an environment can be just as dangerous and destructive as Category 3 water. Where Category 3 sewage can introduce all sorts of bacteria and other pathogens into an environment directly, mold colonies create microscopic spores that go airborne to infect a larger area.
Another unpleasant facet to the problem of sewage cleanup is the odor. There’s nothing worse than trying to live or work in a building that smells bad, and it is definitely not a situation you want to put your family or employees through. Some disreputable restoration companies will use harsh chemicals to mask the odor, which is nearly as bad as the initial problem. Anyone who has ever been in a bad public toilet knows that air freshener odors can only mask so much. At Element Restoration Group, our technique begins with the complete removal of the odor source, followed by the treatment of all contaminated materials and surfaces. We will never use harsh chemical odors to simply cover it up, and all of the products we use are 100% safe and earth friendly. We use state of the art water extraction equipment to get into all the hard to reach places, ensuring the complete removal of moisture and inhibiting mold growth or further water damage. At Element Restoration Group we will never simply mask one odor with another, we use special compounds that have been specially designed for this task. Our process will leave your affected items sanitized, clean, and just like new. The sooner you call Element Restoration Group, the sooner we can begin the restoration process. We guarantee that every detail in your home has been restored back to its original beauty.
