Sewer and toilet backup issues are best handled by professionals. Call SERVPRO to quickly assess the situation and formulate a remediation plan.

SERVPRO Can Extract Hazardous Water in West Hills Properties Safely

Of all the types of damage from water that can affect a West Hills property, sewage-tainted issues are by far one of the most dangerous kinds of mitigation that SERVPRO technicians handle. This type of water carries a rating as a class three biohazard and can hold a variety of bacteria and pathogens with the potential to cause harm or illness.

SERVPRO technicians have decades of experience dealing with sewage-tainted water damage restoration services in West Hills homes. Some of the most common reasons for this type of water in a home come from 

  • Toilet backup
  • Sewer mainline blockage
  • Flooding from groundwater that contains raw sewage    

Scoping the structure is vital to ensure that all home areas get addressed where the water is located. In particular, probes for under flooring and infrared cams that can show temperature changes behind walls are beneficial for ensuring that none of the moisture gets left behind.

The airborne water vapor can be as hazardous as the water within the structure. SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians wear head-to-toe protective equipment, including respirators, to handle the cleanup in properties with contaminated water and to ensure they do not aspirate anything harmful. Containment around the worksite is another common feature during this type of cleanup. This action halts the potential for cross-contamination within the structure.

The techs use proprietary liquid solutions to treat the water to make it safer to handle during extraction and clean surfaces that come into contact with the water. The three most common agents to see during this type of water damage mitigation include antimicrobial, disinfectants, and sanitizing solutions. 

SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills at  (818) 998-1500 has the training and professional water damage restoration services to safely handle contaminated water within West Hills properties. The certified techs arrive promptly and make the damage to the home, "Like it never even happened."
