There are times when homes get flooded. Whether it’s bad weather or an old pipe, it just happens. But it’s a lot worse when it’s not normal rainwater that’s flooding the basement or house. When it is a septic tank problem where sewage has flooded the area, things are definitely at an all-time low. These are not the times to attempt a little DIY to salvage your home. These are the times when you should call Bears Restoration for Berkeley sewage cleanup. Only with our help can your situation be quickly and completely resolved without damaging side effects.
Home Damage Risks
There are definite risks to your home when sewage water floods. For example, with any kind of flood, the structure of the home can get damaged. Moisture seeps into the carpeting, flooring, walls, drywall, insulation, and more, ruining the property. What’s even worse is when the moisture leads to the growth of mold. Mold loves wet, dark places, and it’ll eat away at your property. With Bears Restoration doing the cleanup, though, this doesn’t have to be a problem. We’ll provide such extensive sewage cleanup that you’ll never even know there was a sewage flood.
Sewage water is filled with bacteria, contagions, contaminants, and more that could cause severe illness. Walking barefoot on the wet area or even breathing at all in the area introduces harmful toxins into your body. You need us to drain your home of the sewage water as quickly as possible so that you can continue to have a place to live where you don’t also have the risk of getting sick. Another dangerous health risk is mold. You may think that mold can only affect your home, and as long as the water is cleaned up, you’re safe. But mold usually grows in places that are hidden from view. Toxic black mold is a huge fan of sewage water. Without proper professional sewage cleanup, you could have this substance growing in your home. The risks to your health are many, including respiratory problems and headaches and cold-like symptoms. Don’t let it become a problem – call Bears Restoration to remove the sewage and restore your home for you.
