My Sewer Backed Up, Will That Smell Ever Leave My House?

Sewer Water Contains Hydrogen Sulfide
When sewer water is present, it is crucial to extract the sewer water as soon as possible by pumping, draining, and even mopping it out of your house. You may also need to remove all of the grime and debris from all contact surfaces and wash everything down with hot water and detergent. The process is often quite invasive and too repulsive for most homeowners; therefore, they opt for professional services such as SERVPRO that specialize in biohazard cleanup. Remember: Certified SERVPRO Cleaned for a safe and secure result.

What Are Some Other Things I Should Consider After The Job is Done?

    •    Structural Damage: Anytime standing water is present regardless of time, it poses a risk to structural members of your house. Framing and bottom sill plates should be inspected for damage to ensure the wood is still structurally sound after a large amount of water has wicked into the materials.
    •    Component Damage: Residential housing components that should be inspected and serviced include boilers, HVAC systems, heaters (electrical, natural gas, and fuel oil), fireplaces, insulation, drywall, trim, plumbing, and electrical systems.
    •    Removing Damaged Items: If your home has been subjected to standing water of any nature, removing damaged items such as carpets, drywall, insulation, and damaged framing members is the recommended approach to guarantee your family’s health and ensure the structural integrity of your home. SERVPRO strives to restore and not replace water damaged elements whenever possible.

If you need immediate assistance for this vital and sensitive situation, contact SERVPRO of Silver Lake / Echo Park at (213) 628-2000 today and get your standing water problems solved by a professional and 5-star service you can trust to do the job right the first time.
