From root infiltration in an outside sanitary sewer line to blockages, threats of sewage backups into your Buford home create instant hazards for your family and the structure. While you always have fast access to experienced sewage cleanup professionals of our AdvantaClean team, prompt action is necessary for managing:

  • Microbes

  • Contaminants

  • Bacteria

Initial Steps for Your Home 

As a homeowner, no one feels the damage as you do when sewage cleanup for your Buford property is necessary. You want to be involved in protecting what matters most to your family or keeping them safe from the biohazardous effects of sewage backup. Much of the cleaning and restoration processes should be completed and managed by experienced and certified professionals trained in handling contaminated materials and contents. There are ways you can help this process to go more smoothly and for the disaster itself to be less destructive to your life:

  • Get your family and pets away from the contaminated areas

  • Contact your insurance company and AdvantaClean

  • Remove contents that might later be in harm's way with water migration

Sewage Cleanup for Your House

There is no mistaking the urgency of cleanup and restoration when your home suffers a severe threat like sewage and contaminated waters. Despite the appearance of your house and the overwhelming smell accompanying the damage, we follow a specific process to ensure the house is thoroughly clean, dry, and disinfected.

  • Removing Raw Sewage and Water

The first component of cleaning up sewage in your home's bathroom from a backup is removing the standing water. Extraction devices capable of managing water and debris get used to help streamline the elimination of surface water threats and begin limiting possible contamination concerns for the rest of your house.

  • Removing Contaminated Materials

Contamination is a concern for any materials and contents that have directly contacted backup water or sewage. Any porous materials like carpeting, rugs, wood, cabinets and other sensitive installations can threaten other parts of your home and your family by multiplying microorganisms and creating health hazards. We remove and safely discard these materials.

  • Ventilation and Drying

With the ruined materials and contents out of this room in your house, AdvantaClean can focus on the drying portion of the sewage cleanup process. Using air movers, ventilation options, and dehumidifiers, we can return the moist environment to more favorable conditions that do not support mold growth.

  • Cleaning and Disinfection

Cleaning and disinfection are critical for non-porous building materials that will not get removed from areas like your contaminated bathroom. Tile and porcelain installations fall into this category. These surfaces can still get covered in germs and microbes, so powerful sanitizing products and chlorine-based agents get used to destroy microorganisms.

  • Microbial Protection 

Even with the area disinfected and dried, we still need to complete the full measure of cleaning and protection possible for your household. We want to prevent costly secondary damage that could be forming from the moist environment and the presence of bacterial pathogens, like microbial growth materials that did not require replacement. We have powerful sporicides to help protect surfaces and kill any newly forming mold colonies.

Biohazards like exposing your family to sewage and backup from drains can be alarming and dangerous. This work should be left to professionals like our AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford team. We can evaluate the salvageability of all exposed contents and building materials and work immediately to begin protecting your house. You might not be prepared for the damage that sewage can do, but we are. Call us at (404) 946-4043 or contact our offices at 3050 Business Park Drive #D, Norcross, GA 30071, for help.
