Commercial Sewage Removal

If you are in need of commercial sewage removal, AdvantaClean has all of the equipment and professional manpower necessary to quickly get affected commercial facilities and their business back to normal. Not only can commercial sewage damage cause substantial property destruction, sewage water contains many disease-causing bacteria which are hazardous to the health of building occupants.  For these reasons, it is imperative to have commercial sewage removal performed properly by a certified company, like AdvantaClean.

Whether you have raw sewage flooding the basement of your store, or overflowing sewage wastewater pouring into your building from a city backup, AdvantaClean’s top priority will be to minimize your down time and get you back in business as soon as possible.

When you may need commercial sewage removal:

There are several causes for sewer blockages which can lead to sewage water backup in your building, requiring immediate commercial sewage removal. While some are easy to prevent, others are hidden and hard to detect before you realize you may need commercial sewage removal.

Commercial sewage damage can be caused by:

  • Structural Defects - Different structural defects can develop in a sewage system over time. Misaligned pipes, pipe collapses and cracks or holes in the line can lead to sewage overflow, requiring commercial sewage removal and reconstruction of sewer lines.
  • City sewer backup or surge - If the backup occurs in a city sewage line, the wastewater will normally overflow out of the lowest possible opening. In some buildings, especially those with basements, the overflowing sewage wastewater may exit through the building’s lower drains and toilets.
  • Solid Flushes - The most common cause for commercial sewage removal is when sewage backs up from a blockage in the pipeline between the city main and your building. This is commonly caused by solid objects in the sewage system that do not naturally decompose.
  • Root Infiltration - Tree roots often cause sewage backups by entering the water pipeline at joints and spreading. As tree roots grow, they will often crack and break the sewage water pipes, creating additional structural defects.

AdvantaClean is certified for commercial sewage removal.

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) provides a specific set of practical standards for commercial sewage removal. According to the IICRC S500, commercial sewage removal should only be performed by experienced and trained technicians equipped with full protective equipment, including tyvek suits, gloves, and masks and by using specialized equipment.

AdvantaClean has certified technicians that will promptly and professionally perform the commercial sewage removal in your building according to IICRC standards.
