Niagara Falls Sewage Backup Needs Careful Handling
A basement in Niagara Falls had a water damage event that included sewage, the property owner brought in SERVPRO techs immediately to begin the cleanup. This type of water loss needs disinfection and careful handling as this type of water is a biohazard due to contaminants. The techs extracted the water off the concrete floor and deployed numerous air movers to dry the loss area. There is a significant amount of odor when a sewage backup occurs and the techs have numerous ways of fighting back to neutralize the pungent scent through the use of cleaning agents and equipment such as thermal foggers, air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators.
