Sewage Cleanup and Restoration
The disaster of sewage backups
Unfortunatly sometimes pipes get backed up. Sometimes it's our fault and sometimes it's the cities fault. Sometimes it is even mother natures fault. At times sewer pipes can be backed up and before you know it sewage is coming up through your floor drain. This can be overwhelming but that is where we come in. We are able to safely remove the sewage from your home or business. After that, we remove, or clean if possible, anything the sewage has affected. One thing you don't want is to keep sewage affected items due to the fact that it is category 3 water. One Once that is done, we sanitize to remove any harmful bacteria that can cause mold growth or cause sickness. Then we begin the dryout to your home or business to make it "Like it never even happened".

There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of South Kenosha County 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
