Sewage Backup in a Danbury business
This commercial property in Danbury, CT sustained a sewage backup affecting the exercise area in the basement. Our crews responded on a holiday weekend to begin emergency extraction and mitigation services. Containment barriers were setup to prevent cross contamination along with H.E.P.A. filtered air scrubbers to remove air-borne particulate. Carpeting was removed due to possible bacteria contamination and all areas were cleaned and disinfected.
Water from sewer system backups should be considered very dangerous. 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.
