Potential contaminants present in a plumbing back flow need to be sanitized professionally

When the toilet backs up and floods your office do you have the maintenance man come and clean it up?  Many times this is the first choice of a unit or business manager. If they stopped and considered the potential for contamination and illness they may consider having it professionally cleaned and sanitized.  Any plumbing back up that originates beyond the P trap is considered to be category three water.  Category three water is considered "grossly contaminated and can cause significant adverse reactions to humans if contacted".  If this category three water flows into the carpet and under the walls how do you remove the contamination and sanitize your work space?  In this case, your maintenance guy with a shop vacuum and a fan is not going to do the trick and in fact may make the problem worse.  SERVPRO of Davie and Yadkin Counties has the training and equipment to sanitize your sewage contamination so that the health and safety of your employees are not jeopardized.  Specialized procedures are used to contain the contaminated area and prevent the spread of the contaminants to other areas.  A combination of cleaning and antimicrobial application as well as the removal of porous materials will ensure that your employees are protected from any potential contact with the contaminants.  Call us to today 336 677 1415 if you have any questions or concerns about your water damage.
