Sewer water may or may not be discolored and smell, however, it is always pathogenic necessitating professional cleanup.

Water Damage Cleanup for a Sump Pump in Berkley MI
For various reasons sump pumps can fail allowing ground water to inundate the basement environment and create a major flood cleanup project. This water is alive with microorganisms, fungi, bacteria, molds and dirt. Water begins to amplify with this life and poses a threat to human health if not remediated correctly which includes drying of any building materials that have come into direct contact with water. Homeowners insurance may or may not cover this type of water damage emergency. Call Action Extraction and we can enlighten you on the subject of coverage.
Water Damage from a fresh water source such as a broken pipe or burst hot water heater is typically covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy, assuming you have paid your premiums. Although this fresh water does not immediately pose a threat to human health, it is highly destructive to building materials and if not removed from the indoor environment may develop into mold unless water removal and humidity control are addressed in 48 hours. Flood damage from fresh water also known as (category 1) is the least worrisome but after 3 days of the continued presence of high humidity it becomes alive with microorganisms.
My basement has water in it, what should I do?
When a Birmingham MI basement is discovered to have water on the floor it can certainly be a stress maker. Here are some good first steps to take to minimize water damage to your home. The first step to take when water has entered your home is to be certain nothing electrical has come into contact with any water. Carefully look to see if water has made it’s way to anything electrical and call a professional to secure the environment if it has. We are on call for such water damage emergencies and have a master electrician on call to evaluate any water damaged home. The second step is to begin to look for the source of water to stop further damage. This process is typically easy when done with a systematic approach. Basements with sump pumps need to be looked at to see if the water is at the top or higher than usual. All floor drains should be evaluated for signs of a sewer backup. Listen for any running water that could be suggestive of a burst water line, hot water heater rupture or malfunctioning appliance. If you here running water locate the water shut off in your home and turn water off immediately.
My sump pump has failed and my basement is filled with water, should I call a water restoration company or a plumber?
Calling a plumber first is never the correct decision because most plumbers are not willing to work in an environment where there is standing water and even if they will, once the pump is replaced you still have a wet basement requiring water damage cleanup. Plumbers do not possess the appropriate equipment to restore water damaged environments or the necessary skill and experience. Calling us first when your sump pump has failed resulting in water damage is a better option because we are a full service water restoration company and will replace your old system with a new pump and then immediately begin the water damage cleanup.
If my basement drains through the floor drains by itself after water enters my home, do I still need a professional water restoration company?
If floor drains eventually remove the water from your basement that may have resulted from flooding, you will most definitely still need professional water restoration service to remove moisture from all the wet building materials that may have come into contact with the water. When water absorbes into cement, wood substrates, drywall, carpet or pad you have the perfect environment for mold and microbial contamination. Elevated humidity needs to be removed from the air and water must be removed from the wet materials if mold is to be avoided and your basement kept free from smells.
Water has entered my basement and smells, how long till I get water damage or mold?
As long as the presence of water remains, water continues to damage the home environment. Unless water and moisture are completely removed from materials like; wet carpet, carpet pad, wood, tile and drywall, the potential for mold exist. Water in the home creates very inviting circumstances for the development of mold and strong pungent smells. If your home has experience water damage and your carpet is smelling, it is a sure sign of microbial amplification and anti-microbial specialty agents are required.
What is the difference between flooding and water damage, my basement has flooded, but do I actually have water damage?
Not exactly. Flooding is an event that happens in an area of the home (most often a basement) when water from various sources; sewer, sump, burst pipe, etc. enters the home. Water immediately creates flooding, however there is not necessarily water damage unless the water is sewer. Flooded environments can be dried where there is no water damage as a result if caught in time and dried properly. Wet carpet, wet padding, wet drywall and other materials that are absorbent can still be safely dried in a timely fashion leaving no visual damage. If the water that has flooded your basement or home is sewer, water damage is immediate and materials can not be safely restored.
Water damage by definition is a permanent compromise in appearance or integrity of materials that were once wet and have become dry. Sewer water like fire changes both the looks and the integrity of everything it touches. We are very experienced in evaluating items to determine if they have become water damaged and how to document damages for the insurance companies.
