A sewage backup should be treated as an emergency since the water likely contains bacteria that can cause serious illness. Northeast Power Dry has the training and equipment to quickly and safely cleanup contaminated water.
If you've experienced a toilet overflow or sewer backup, contact us today to have the damage assessed by our experts and begin the cleanup process as soon as possible.
Contaminated water includes Category 2, or gray water, such as water from a washing machine or dishwasher overflow and Category 3, or black water, such as floodwater or water from a toilet overflow, which can cause severe illness. Even water from a leaking faucet should be dealt with as soon as possible as it can eventually become contaminated.
Most sewage backups often occur from a blockage in the sanitary sewer line, where wastewater may enter your home throughout the floor drains and other plumbing lines within the building. Some causes of sewage backups are preventable, while others aren’t evident until the backup occurs. Here are some of the main causes:
