Sewer Water Cleanup in a Washington, D.C., Apartment Building

Posted by on Monday, August 22nd, 2022 in Water Damage Restoration

Heavy rains often cause sewage systems to become overwhelmed with excess water. When too much water fills a system at once, it can lead to a backup, with water and sewage making their way back into people’s homes. At this point, sewer water cleanup may be required.

A clogged sewer can cause serious property damage and pose severe health hazards. Sewage water contains harmful bacteria and viruses that cause illnesses in otherwise healthy people and exacerbate health sensitivities. Additionally, the filthy water can ruin flooring and walls, which may need repairs to affected areas.

Sewer Water Cleanup in Apartment Units

Recently, an apartment management company in Northwest Washington, D.C., called us requesting water damage restoration after five inches of sewer water entered four lower-level apartment units. The flooding was the result of downpours that were in the forecast a week prior.
