Black water-sewage cleanup
Flooded garage

In the unfortunate case, many of us will require a sewage cleanup at some point in our life, when sewage or wastewater has leaked or overflowed into our property due to clogged pipes, sewer line blockages, or sewer system malfunctions. The presence of sewage in a property poses significant health risks and should be handled with caution.  GForce Restoration can alleviate the negative impact of these occurrences by providing the following:

  1. Ventilation through the use of industrial-strength fans and/or dehumidifiers which will reduce unpleasant odors and promote the drying process.
  2. Removal of standing water through the use of pumps and/or wet-dry vacuums and dispose of the water in a sanitary manner.
  3. Cleaning and disinfection of all affected surfaces.
  4. Disposal of contaminated materials, such as carpets, upholstered furniture, and drywall, due to the high risk of contamination. 
  5. Drying and dehumidifying through use of fans, dehumidifiers, and proper ventilation to dry out the affected area completely, preventing further microbial growth and reducing the risk of mold.

Keep in mind, prior to hiring a professional, please be sure you do the following to ensure your safety:

  1. Ensure your personal safety by wearing protective clothing, including gloves, boots, goggles, and a mask, to minimize exposure to harmful bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants. 
  2. Evacuate the affected area and keep children, pets, and vulnerable individuals away from the contaminated area until cleanup is complete.
  3. Stop the source: If the sewage backup is caused by a plumbing issue within your property, such as a clogged toilet or drain, shut off the water supply to prevent further flow. If it’s a municipal sewer system problem, contact the appropriate authorities to address the issue.
  4. Ventilate the area: Open windows and use fans or dehumidifiers to improve ventilation in the affected area. 

It is important to note that sewage cleanup can be hazardous.  Please consider contacting GForce Restoration at your earliest convenience to handle your cleanup safely and effectively.
