Sewage Back Up at Activity Center
When a record breaking snowstorm hit eastern Massachusetts, it wasn't only bursting pipes that caused damage. This community center in Danvers, MA experienced a sewage backup due to frozen drainage and needed immediate attention.
Fortunately, the backup occurred in the basement, away from any kind of activity and/or customers. When the call came in, we were onsite that evening, drying and disinfecting the area.
Water from sewer system backups should be considered serious. The water is grossly unsanitary and may contain bacteria and viruses that could cause serious illness. Special training and equipment is necessary to safely clean this type of contamination.
There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of Haverhill/Newburyport will inspect that contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response to safely restore your home or business.
