Water Cleanup after a Sewer Backup
Sewer water backups are the most harmful form of damage water a home will ever experience. The smells, germs, and look of a sewer backup are all capable of ruining ones day. Even when sewer water does not look dingy it is still abounding with health threatening germs and bacteria. Pathogenic water causes disease if not dealt with properly.
Water must be removed, wet carpet, pad and drywall discarded and all surfaces treated with sanitizing agents if all germs are to be abolished.
Sewer water is classified as (category 3) because it is the most dangerous and human health menacing, not to mention being destructive to property.
Let the professionals at Action Extraction manage your drain backup need for sanitizing and cleaning. The needed process is a high risk protocol and implementing the critical steps is necessary to assure all germs are killed and no air borne pathogens can be inhaled.
Cleanup after a Sump Pump Backup
For numerous reasons sump pumps fail often during heavy raining which will allow ground water into homes creating one of the most common type of flooding.
This water is teaming with microorganisms, making it living water and very abundant in molds, fungi and bacteria. If you regularly have your lawn fertilized these same chemicals are now in your home. By law fertilizer companies must place warning signs on your lawn to caution you as to what is there for your protection. Unfortunately these chemicals intrude into your home when the sump water backs up.
We are very skilled at employing the IICRC Standards on this type of damage for your protection and use anti-microbial agents to eradicate microorganisms. Homeowners may or may not have insurance coverage on this type of water loss. Call Action Extraction and we can help you on the subject of coverage. Don’t think you require flood insurance as that is not the type needed for this particular water loss.
Flood Damage from A Fresh Water Source
Broken water pipes, burst hot water heaters, sink overflows, refrigerator leaks and appliance malfunctions are examples of water damage from a fresh water source and is typically covered by homeowners insurance.
This type of water loss will not instantly produce a threat to human health; however it is very destructive to building materials and if not removed from the interior setting will develop into mold unless water removal and humidity control are dealt with in 48 hours.
Flood damage from fresh water is categorized as (category 1) and poses the slightest concern, but if left wet over 3 days, such environments become alive with microorganisms.

Common Questions About Flooding
My basement has water in it, what should I do?
If your basement has water in it from any source it is important to know what steps to take. If you follow these steps you will minimize damage to your home dramatically. Step 1) Evaluate the scope of water contact to see if any electrical has gotten wet. Be careful not to touch any wires or electrical outlets until you have made certain are dry. If it is discovered that water has come into contact with electrical; call us as we have a licensed electrician to make recommendations.
Step 2) Look for the source that has inundated the property with water. This step is typically easy when done with a methodical approach. If your home has a sump pump, look to see if the water is at the top of the well or higher than normal. Look at the floor drains to determine if signs of a sewer backup exist. Listen for any running water that could be coming from a burst water line, hot water heater, or defective appliance. If you here running water find the water shut off in your home and turn water off.
My sump pump has stopped working and my basement is flooding, should I call a water cleanup company or a plumber?
Contacting a plumber first is by no means the correct choice because they are not typically enthusiastic to work in a basement with standing water. If they are willing, once the water is eventually pumped out you still have wet carpet and a wet basement requiring water removal and drying. Most plumbers are not certified, experienced or certified for such water mitigation service. Calling us first when your sump pump stops working is a better choice because we are a full service restoration company and are equipped to replace your old pump with a new one as well as immediately begin the water cleanup.
If my wet basement eventually drains by itself after water enters my home, do I still need a professional cleaning company?
If your floor drain gradually allows the water to be removed, you may still require the need for professional water evaluation. There will still be abundant moisture from all the wet materials that the water has come into contact with. If water has absorbed into cement, wood, drywall, carpet or pad you have the textbook environment for the growth of mold and microbial organisms. High humidity must be removed from the air and water must be removed from all wet items if mold is to be avoided and your basement kept free from smells.
My basement smells after flooding, how long till I get mold?
When the presence of water remains, it continues to create havoc in the home environment. Without water removal, moisture still exist in items like; carpet, carpet pad, wood, tile and drywall. Until these things are dried the potential for mold exist. Moisture in the home allows very alluring circumstances for mold and strong pungent smells to develop and thrive. If your basement has water or moisture and your carpet smells, it is a certain sign of microbial amplification and anti-microbial agents are required.
Is there a difference in flooding and damage, my basement has flooded, but I don’t actually have any visual damages?
Not necessarily, flooding is an experience that happens in an area of the home (most often a basement) when water from different sources; sewer, sump, burst pipe, etc. enters the home. Water immediately creates a flooding situation; however that does not necessarily mean you have permanent damage. If the source is from a sewer the damage is immediate. Wet environments can be safely dried resulting in no property destruction when caught in time and dried properly. Wet carpet, wet padding, wet drywall and other materials that are absorbent can all be safely dried in a timely manner where no visual damage can be found.
flood damage is defined as a permanent and irreversible compromise in appearance or integrity of materials. The damage from sewer water changes both the looks and the integrity of everything it touches. We are very knowledgeable in assessing items to determine if they have become destroyed and will document such damages for the insurance company.
I have a frozen pipe, what should I do?
If any of your water pipes have frozen due to tremendously cold temperatures, you must act quickly to avoid a water damage nightmare. 1) Locate the water shut off and turn your water off. 2) Only after turning water off, you can slowly thaw the frozen water pipe with extra heat from a space heater or hair dryer. Once ice has been melted have a plumber make the repairs and place additional insulation around the pipe. If you have discovered a frozen pipe that has already burst and created a crack or compromise, call us immediately. 1-800-713-4333

Why Many Residence may Experience Damage From Flooding
Several circumstances that make a water emergency scenario more likely in older communities than a newer one is the clay pipe sewer systems that have a life expectancy of 40 -50 years before they become damaged by tree roots, time and settling of soil.
When the water drain system fails it allows water that should naturally be diverted from the home to back up and intrude sometimes violently into the home. This type of damage can be abundantly costly and unsettling. Because the neighborhoods have been there many years having often several different families that have lived there, many of the basements are finished and any water that infiltrates into the basement can be a serious and health threatening event.
If your basement has become a victim of such an unwanted event call us today for a free evaluation of your property. Our experienced professionals will focus only on the necessary care required to restore your property to allow for the most affordable service possible.
