Sewer backups should be considered an emergency since the water may contain viruses, bacteria, and other microbes that cause serious illnesses. The professional team at ERT has specialized training and equipment to quickly and safely clean contaminants like sewage, and will inspect your home or business to determine the appropriate plan of action for the type of water encountered.
Our IICRC-certified technicians have been specially-trained to extract sewage, mud and sewage water. They will remove and properly dispose of porous materials including furniture, carpeting, bedding and any other items which have absorbed the sewage water.
After the sewage is gone, air movers are brought in to blow the moist air around the property. This is done so that our dehumidifiers can soak up the moist air to keep your home or commercial building dry while preventing mold growth.
If the items are nonporous, like tiles and hardwood floors, we can clean them. Our technicians will use eco-friendly microbials and biosides to totally cleanse the affected area. IICRC-certified cleanup procedures can also include using disinfectants that are IICRC approved to assure that the affected areas are once again safe.
