Sewage clean up

Sewage Cleanup and Restoration

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.

Sewage Backup or Toilet Overflow? Call Us Today – (972)403-9004

There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of Plano will inspect that contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response to safely restore your home or business.

The three types of contaminated water:

Category 1: "Clean Water"

This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.

  • Water from a clean source like a broken water line
  • If left untreated, can degrade into category 2 or 3

Category 2: "Gray Water"

This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

  • May contain bacteria and viruses
  • Can quickly degrade into category 3 if left untreated

Category 3: "Black Water"

This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3 water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

  • May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
  • Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup

24 Emergency Service

Sewage backup should be considered an emergency and dealt with as quickly as possible. We are the water damage restoration specialists with specific training and expertise to safely restore your home or business.

Do you have water damage in Plano home?

Most people can go a lifetime with out not having a water damage to their property, but a few will encounter a water damage to their property.

Hair Salon Flooded

6/20/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Plano was contacted by the property manager of this large strip center on Sunday morning. The employees had arrived to work, opened the door and were standing in about an inch to two inches of water throughout their salon.

Water from the hot water heater had leaked out overnight and had saturated most all of the hair salon rooms. Multiple types of flooring was involved as well.

Our technicians arrived onsite in an hour and started the extraction process. After the standing water was extracted, baseboards were removed to expedite the drying process. 

Then all of the air movers and dehumidifiers were placed throughout the building. This was a commercial property that had commercial carpeting as well with no pad under it.

The property is drying to standards and soon they will have the baseboards reattached and the carpet cleaned.

If you happen to go to work and find yourself in this type of situation, please contact SERVPRO of Plano at 972-403-9004.

Do you have a dirty HVAC system?

6/20/2022 (Permalink)

Did you know your ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality? In most cases, the HVAC system has been operating for some time without much attention. Dirty ducts can circulate odors, contaminates such as mold, and irritating dust throughout your building or home.

A routine part of SERVPRO of Plano’s service is inspecting the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Condition Unit (HVAC). Keeping the HVAC and duct work clean can potentially extend the life-span of the equipment by allowing it to operate at peak condition, which may help save you money. Duct cleaning may not always be necessary.

In some circumstances such as after a FIRE, SMOKE, or Suspected MOLD GROWTH, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the clean up process. In these cases, SERVPRO of Plano can often restore the HVAC system and duct work to pre-damage condition.

Mold Growth In your property

6/1/2022 (Permalink)

DEFENSE AGAINST MOLD GROWTH:

Prompt mitigation is vital to avoid mold growth, which can be visible in as little as 24 to 48 hours under certain conditions.

Most of the time mold growth in a home or commercial property can goes unnoticed for a very long extended time until someone spots it or starts to smell .

Keep the humidity between 30 to 60 percent. Provide for proper drainage away from building foundations. Regularly inspect plumbing and appliances for leaks.

Keep gutters and drains clear of debris. Respond to all water intrusions immediately.

Inspect the roof, windows and other areas where water might enter the building and perform necessary maintenance.

Contact SERVPRO of Plano for assistance after a water damage or if you discover mold. 972-403-9004
