Sewer Backup Response Tips
SERVPRO of Vacaville responds quickly to any emergency, whether it be flood, fire or even a bio-hazard. Sometimes our customers don't realize what situations can pose serious health risks to themselves and their families and try to take care of the problems themselves.
Water from a sewer system backup, for example, should be considered very dangerous. The water is extremely unsanitary and may contain bacteria and viruses that could cause serious illness. Special training and equipment is necessary to safely clean this type of contamination.
If you home or business should experience a sewer system backup, remember these tips:
- Stay out of the affected area.
- Call emergency service personnel if the situation is life-threatening.
- Treat ALL bodily fluids as if they are contaminated.
- Turn off the HVAC system if there is sewage damage.
At SERVPRO of Vacaville, we are on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to your bio-hazard emergency. Call us at 707-724-8977 if you need our help.
