Sewage Cleanup

Sewer backups show no concern for the places they invade. Sewage cleanup is a scary thing, as virtually all surfaces it encounters become breeding grounds for bacteria. This makes it a very unique type of damage restoration project. Whether this has happened in your residence or a commercial location, we know the best way to properly take care of the cleanup. Various flooring types, contents and room finishing materials can create a tricky situation. In most cases, the carpet and drywall will have to be disposed of. Even water that looks clean and clear can carry harmful bacteria. If it came out of a sewer, presume it to be contaminated. Below are a few suggestions when it comes to dealing with sewage back-up in your property.

1. First, call your local plumber. Since sewage is a health hazard, do not try to repair the cause yourself

2. Be aware of hazards such as: electric shock, slipping and toxic odors from sewer back-ups

3. Call Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair to begin emergency service: 800-528-5535

 

4. Call your insurance company or local agent and advise them of the situation

  • Be prepared to provide information about how the water loss occurred
  • Let them know that you have called us – once we assess the situation, we will touch base with your insurance company to share loss specifics

5. While we are on our way, you may want to:

  • Move valuables to higher ground
  • Do not try to remove contents or salvage anything just yet – each surface contains thousands of bacteria you don’t want to spread around
  • Perch furniture up with wood blocks or plastic wrap to minimize moisture exposure

Why Should You Use a Water Restoration Company?

This is an excellent question! While attempting to restore damage yourself may seem like a cost saving measure, it can become a long-term expense in the end. Why? Well, trained water restoration contractors adhere to a strict set of remediation guidelines. Examples of such certifications are Clean Trust (IICRC), ASCR, WLI, or WLS. These indicate that the company and the technicians all have extensive training in the science of water damage, sewage related bacteria and health concerns, as well as clean-up using safety and preventative removal methods to ensure there are no future damage issues, such as mold or other contamination.

Moreover, you will want to choose a company with many years of experience. Personal recommendations from your insurance agent, friends or neighbors may help in deciding. Finally, ensure the contractor follows the IICRC S500 standards for professional water damage restoration. This standard is for the safety and health of your family, property and insurance needs.

I could not be happier…. in Clay Center, Kansas

"I could not be happier with the service I got from This company. I had a really bad first experience from the first water mitigation company I went through and when Lamunyon came their work was amazing. Every aspect of their customer service was so good. Megan was so sweet and helpful and heard me out and had someone out to me the next day. Jamie was so nice and explained everything to me. I have never had this happen and his demeanor really put me at ease as I was internally freaking out. The gentleman doing the work Jed and Aaron took care of my house and they were also so professional and caring. Jed answered all my questions. When I say “all my questions” I mean it, he was so helpful! He explained everything in such detail that I was able to understand. Any time I would call he would answer and if he wasn’t able to, he would call me back in a timely manner. I want to add that it is such a great customer service all the way around! Megan, Jaime, Jed, Aaron and Dustin thank you so much for your help and the great work that you have done. I will definitely refer you and if (hopefully not) I ever need work done you guys will be the first ones I call. Thanks so much!"
