We are the Sewage Cleanup Specialists in Michigan
Sewer backups are quite possibly one of the worst and most dangerous forms of property damage you can face. If you notice a foul, sulfurous smell, it could mean you require sewage cleanup.
Toilet Overflow | Sewage Cleanup and The Process
Every sewer backup emergency varies in difficulty, from the amount of sewage to the degree of contamination. Each situation requires a different prognosis, but the overall remediation steps are usually the same. The steps listed below represent our process for “common” sewage damage services.
Sewage Removal starts with a simple phone call. I.R.S. Insurance Restoration is available 24 hours a day, providing sewage cleanup services, large or small. With sewer water damage, fast action is crucial. Even a few hours can significantly increase the severity of the water damage.
When you call, a team member will ask relevant questions regarding your sewage damage disaster. Asking questions helps us determine what equipment and support to bring, including how many prepared water & Sewage damage service technicians may be needed.
Sewage Damage Inspection
On-site sewage removal services begin with a detailed investigation of your home or business, including a damage evaluation. Our team will now determine the scope of sewer damage so that we can develop an appropriate plan of action.
Sewage Removal Restoration Services
Sewage water extraction removes most of the sewer water. I.R.S. Insurance Restoration uses powerful pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons of sewer water from your property. Removing sewage in bulk helps reduce drying time and prevents secondary damage like mold and bacterial growth.
Sewage Damage Documentation Services
Most sewage removal services typically result in your insurance company getting involved. I.R.S. Insurance Restoration is an expert when dealing with insurance carriers. Sewage removal services require extensive work and will need significant documentation. Taking pictures, moisture readings or even an immersive virtual reality Matterport scan are all things we can handle for you.
Sewage Removal and Water Damage Drying Services
After our team removes the standing water and raw sewage, we will begin drying your property. Materials such as walls, floors, and ceilings may appear to be dry, but a quick moisture inspection will show they are wet from sewer water. Nearly all building materials, like wood, drywall, and flooring materials, are porous and therefore hold sewer water. This excess water can cause materials to decay, warp, or cause mold damage.
Sewage Disinfecting Services
Personal property and the building structure may need extensive professional cleaning services. In addition to cleaning your property’s structure, we will clean your furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other restorable belongings that suffer water and sewage damage. Most flooding and sewer water damage also require professional odor removal and deodorization services.
Contents Restoration Services
I.R.S. Insurance Restoration has plenty of warehouse space dedicated to content processing during an extensive sewer water damage. Our contents cleaning area is complete with a deodorization chamber, hand, and Ultrasonic cleaning stations. We have enough secure storage where contents get inventoried until it’s ready to be brought back to your property. We digitally photograph and list all belongings on site after a loss. This content restoration software enables us to generate reports showing the condition of every affected item and the capability to track contents as required.
