Dealing with Sewage backup and how SERVPRO can help.Antioch Ca

6/2/2021 (Permalink)

sewage loss sewage loss coming of from drain hole. Water damage, Fire damage, Mold Damage, Covid cleaning. Antioch, Ca EAst Bay area

7/16/2019

A sewage backup is one of the most troublesome and foul incidents that can occur in a home – it can cause extensive property damage and severe health effects and, on top of that, it is extremely difficult and unpleasant to deal with. Cleaning up sewer backup requires a lot of time and effort, as well as specialized disinfecting products and purification techniques. Raw sewage cleanup,  in particular, is especially laborious and risky as it not only causes a lot of hassle and inconveniences, but also presents a variety of health effects (sewage spills contain contaminants that can cause serious diseases) and sanitation issues. Professional help is your best option in such situations, but you can do a few things to limit the extent of the damage before the experts arrive (or even deal with the problem yourself if the damage is not too severe).

What to Do After Sewage Backup

There are certain important precautionary measures to take after a sewage backup in order to prevent the damage from spreading:

  • Keep children and pets away from the affected area;
  • Put on appropriate protective equipment – rubber gloves, rubber boots, impervious coveralls, protective eyewear, and a face mask;
  • Switch off the electrical power to your home (only if the distribution panel is safely above water). Wear rubber gloves and use a dry wooden stick to shut off the main switch;
  • Turn off any running water and don’t use the water supply system in your home (it may even be a good idea to turn off the water supply to the building);
  • Open doors and windows to allow fresh air inside (do not use the central air conditioning system to ventilate your home as sewage-contaminated dust and water droplets can enter the HVAC system and contaminate it);
  • Take any dry, un-contaminated items away from the affected area;
  • Add small amounts of chlorine bleach to standing water to ensure some disinfection;
  • Notify your insurance company that there has been a sewage spill in your home;
  • Contact your municipal authority or sewage department (if your home is connected to a public sewer) or your local health department (if your home is connected to a private septic system) and ask for advice;
  • Call a professional water damage restoration company. The quick and efficient intervention of the experienced technicians will save you a lot of time and effort and will provide the most appropriate, safest, and cost-effective solution to the problem. Besides, most sewage cleanup companies offer not only water extraction, but also quality repair works, odor removal, and content cleanup, so you will have all the aspects of the restoration process taken care of when using professional sewage cleanup services.

Good to remember:

  • Take pictures of the sewage spill and the water-damaged items and structural materials before removing them or having anything cleaned up (the photographs will serve as proof for your insurance claim). Keep all the receipts for materials and replacements, as well as for the repair and cleaning works performed in your home;
  • Do not use harsh chemicals to unclog the draining system as they can cause severe damage to the pipes and sewer lines. Opt for treatment methods that use enzymes instead of chemicals or call a plumber to fix the source of the problem;
  • Take appropriate measures to prevent cross-contamination (keep the doors between the contaminated area and the other rooms in your home closed, do not use the central air conditioning system until the problem has been solved, keep air pressure in the contaminated area lower than in the rest of the building, etc.) to ensure that sewage contaminated soil won’t be tracked into unaffected areas of your property and airborne sewage-contaminated dust (or mold spores) won’t be blown to other spaces.

Good to remember: The longer the contaminated waters remain in your home or on your items, the greater the chance of spreading disease and causing a mold problem. You need to take quick and efficient measures in order to prevent greater damage and more serious troubles. Using professional sewage cleanup services is your best bet as the experts will respond to your situation in the quickest, safest, and most appropriate manner possible. The pros will use specialized cleaning products, advanced equipment, and proven techniques to remove water from your home and restore it to a safe and good condition. Their quality services include:

  • Removing sewage water and solid waste in a safe and appropriate manner;
  • Removing contaminated content;
  • Cleaning and sanitizing the area;
  • Using professional grade air movers to ventilate and dry the area;
  • Performing any necessary repair and restoration works;
  • Restoring salvageable content to its original good condition;
  • Performing mold mitigation services (if necessary) and/or taking efficient measures to prevent mold growth.

Proper sewage cleaning will ensure your peace of mind and allow you to get your life back on track soon after the disaster.

Once the problem has been solved, however, make sure you take the necessary precautions to reduce the chance of sewage backup in the future.

How to Prevent Sewage Backup

  • Regularly inspect the pipes and valves on your property and keep them in good repair;
  • Do not allow large amounts of harsh chemicals into the sewer system;
  • Avoid disposing of grease down the kitchen drain as it can harden within the plumbing and collect debris to create a clog;
  • Don’t flush napkins, tissues, diapers, and other waste down the toilet;
  • Don’t plant trees or large shrubs directly above or near sewer lines as the roots can grow too large and break the pipes.

These simple measures will help you avoid sewage problems in the first place and will save you a lot of time, money, and nerves. However, if a disaster happens despite your best efforts, make sure you identify and fix the problem that caused the sewage backup and call reliable water damage restoration professionals like SERVPRO of Antioch 925-706-0106  to handle the sewage backup cleanup and ensure the excellent condition of your property.

Benefits of Hiring a water damage restoration company

Benefits of Hiring A Water Damage Restoration Company

Water damage may be the most common form of property damage, but nobody likes to deal with it. Whether it comes from a leaking pipe, a heavy rainstorm, or appliance fail, water causes a great deal of damage to both building materials and furnishings, and it will continue to wreak havoc until it’s removed. This is one job it’s better to leave to a water damage restoration company for a variety of reasons.

Finding Hidden Water Damage & the Leak Source

Sometimes it’s easy to find the source of excess water in your home; if failed water heater is spraying water all over , that’s the most likely culprit. Other times the source is tougher to find; a broken pipe in a wall or a crack in the foundation can easily be overlooked. If the source of the leak isn’t corrected, there will be a never-ending cycle of flooding and cleanup until it’s fixed. Water can get into places most people wouldn’t think to look and cause damage that can go undetected until it’s too late. Trained professionals from restoration companies know how and where to look for water damage, as well as for sources of leaks. They know what to look for and where because they do it so often, unlike the average homeowner.

Heavy Duty Equipment & Products

Water damage mitigation professionals use the most advanced equipment and products in the industry. This equipment is usually not available to members of the general public, often because using them requires specialized training. Carpet vacuum cleaners aren’t designed to remove water, and commercially available shop vacs may not be able to handle an extensive flood. A restoration company has its own heavy-duty dehumidifiers, air movers, fans, and vacuums and doesn’t need to worry about borrowing or renting enough of them, especially in the case of a disaster when others may be trying to rent them. Their water extraction equipment can remove large amounts of standing water and dehumidifiers and air movers can even extract water from damaged materials. All done by trained professionals so no secondary damage will be done 

Fast Responses & Time Savings

When you find signs of water damage in your home or business, it’s important to act quickly before even more damage occurs. Wasting time tracking down resources and manpower gives rot and mold more time to ruin furnishings and building materials. That’s why it’s best to call a water damage restoration company that offers 24 hour, 7 day a week emergency services. Leaving cleanup to the professionals frees you and/or your staff to continue running your life or your business.

Reducing Costs & Insurance Help

Working with a water damage mitigation company may save you money in the long run. A reputable company will do a comprehensive restoration the first time, ensuring that water won’t remain and soak into your property. Having to hire a company to come back and clean up mold and restore rotted building materials will be much more expensive. It will cost you even more if you have to take time off work to do any cleanup work yourself. A restoration company will also help you file a claim with your insurance provider for any property that was damaged by the flood or by mold. Since these companies frequently work with insurance adjusters, they know exactly what paperwork is necessary and the best ways to file claims.

Any time you find excess water in your home or business call the water damage restoration experts at SERVPRO of Antioch 925-706-0106

No matter if it comes from rain, sewage backups, or broken pipes, we’ll respond quickly to begin the mitigation process before the damage can spread further or harmful mold or bacteria can begin to grow. Our certified and experienced professionals remove excess water; dry, dehumidify, and disinfect the area; restore structural elements and personal items; and remove all traces of mold from your property.

SERVPRO® Named to Entrepreneur’s Top 10 Franchise List for 7th Consecutive Year

Cleanup and restoration franchisor retain top ranking in restoration services category and climbs to #4 ranking overall in the 2016 Franchise 500 rankings 

SERVPRO®, a cleanup and restoration franchise company, maintains its hold on the top ranking in the Restoration Services industry for the 13th consecutive year and moves up to the number four spot overall in the 2016 Franchise 500 rankings from Entrepreneur magazine.* This is the seventh consecutive year SERVPRO has been included in the magazine’s Top 10 list, standing out in a group of more than 951 franchises that qualified for inclusion in the list. 

Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 selection process uses “objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation” to help would-be entrepreneurs identify franchise investment opportunities. Some of the most important factors considered by Entrepreneur in developing the list each year are “financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system.” 

“It’s exciting to be part of a dynamic organization that continues to grow and strives to always provide superior support for its franchisees, and by extension its customers,” said Michael Borders, owner of SERVPRO of Antioch. “The recognition that the company earns year after year in this prestigious list is confirmation of a commitment to excellence that starts at the top and is evident in the service that each franchisee provides to each and every customer.” 

According to Borders, several differentiators set SERVPRO apart from the competition and fuel the attractiveness of the company to both existing franchisees and would-be entrepreneurs looking for a strong business opportunity. Key among these are: 

  • SERVPRO’s strength as a brand with a national footprint, wide-spread market penetration, laser-focused brand messaging, and the ability to create national partnerships with organizations such as the PGA TOUR and the American Red Cross.
  • SERVPRO’s commitment to being a learning organization, which keeps training and support at the forefront of the company’s culture and philosophy of success and helps franchisees plan, track, and deliver best-in-class services to consumers.
  • SERVPRO’s focus on continued development and support for proprietary software and systems to allow the company’s operational capacity to keep pace with an aggressive growth strategy. 

Sue Steen, SERVPRO Industries, Inc., chief executive officer, adds, “One of the potential pitfalls of growing too quickly is outpacing your capacity to train and support the franchisees. SERVPRO® is a conservative company, and early on we took the time to build a strong system and put the building blocks in place to support growth without sacrificing support to our franchisees.”

“Today,” Steen continues, “as a mature franchise organization with more than 1,700 locations under a single brand, recognition like this makes it clear we are reaping the rewards of having laid a solid foundation and a framework to handle quick growth. As our brand continues to grow, we will continue our winning strategy of supporting and improving upon our infrastructure and investing resources in training and support.” 

SERVPRO® specializes in fire and water cleanup and restoration services, helping both commercial and residential customers recover from property damage emergencies “Like it never even happened.” For more information about SERVPRO of Antioch, contact our office 24/7 at 925-706-0106

Local Disaster Cleanup Franchise Celebrates
“Making History” at SERVPRO’s 50th Annual Convention

Industry leader in cleanup and restoration services welcomes a record-breaking group of franchise owners and key staff at milestone event

Antioch, CA (Grassroots Newswire) July 16, 2019 - Michael A. Borders of SERVPRO of Antioch recently joined a record-breaking group of more than 2,500 franchise owners, key team members, and corporate representatives at the 50th Annual SERVPRO® Convention. The event, themed “Making History,” was held from June 24-28 at the Sacramento Convention Center in Sacramento, California, where the company was founded.

“Celebrating our 50th anniversary milestone made the SERVPRO Annual Convention even more special this year,” said Michael A. Borders, owner of SERVPRO of Antioch. “One of the most important benefits of attending this annual event is having the opportunity to network with and learn from other franchise owners and team members. That benefit was especially evident this year. SERVPRO’s long history as an industry leader has produced a network of experienced, seasoned professionals who have responded to emergencies across the spectrum. This knowledge base is invaluable both to our business and to the community we stand ready to serve when the unexpected happens.”

The company’s 50th Annual Convention was a celebration of the company’s history and a showcase of small business best practices and cutting-edge restoration and remediation technology. The event featured a variety of workshops and group sessions ranging across 37 different topics. Franchisees and their key staff gained knowledge and hands-on experience to help them build and grow their businesses and strengthen ties with both residents and businesses in their local communities. Highlights of the convention included a keynote address by motivational speaker Jon Gordon and an awards ceremony recognizing the achievements of top-performing franchisees.

“SERVPRO has come a long way since Ted and Doris Isaacson started the company as a painting business in Sacramento in 1967,” said Rick Isaacson, chief executive officer of SERVPRO. “In 1969, they used their cleanup and restoration background to take their new company in a different direction and never looked back. SERVPRO’s professional services network now includes more than 1,700 individually owned and operated franchises across the U.S. and Canada. Our annual convention brings this diverse group of entrepreneurs together to learn from industry experts and each other about the latest innovations in disaster cleanup, restoration, and remediation services. We are proud of each of these dedicated professionals and the world-class service they provide to their customers and their communities.”
