We provide homeowners and business owners with mitigation from sewage and drain backup in Central Wisconsin Counties of Marathon, Lincoln, Langlade, Portage and Taylor.
Sewage overflows, spills and backups are one of the most unwelcome and undesirable occurrences in a home. Often referred to as raw sewage, septic tank waste, or sewage sludge. Sewage is also called black water and is grossly contaminated and can contain pathogenic, toxigenic or other harmful agents. Sewage can contain anything from liquid to solid household wastes, industrial effluent, human excrement, blood born pathogens, and any other debris that is discharged into the sewer lines through drains and sewage systems.
If a sewer line breaks or begins to back up into your home, the results can be horrifying. Bad odors, bacteria, stains, and contamination can all result from a sewage intrusion, and require immediate attention. Various health risks are also associated with exposure to sewage. These risks particularly affect small children, the elderly, and those with immune system or respiratory problems. This can cost several thousands of dollars in structural damages if left unattended.

Rest assured that when you call ServiceMaster Restoration Professionals the necessary steps will be taken to remove any unwanted odors and sewage and get your home or business back to a pre-loss condition and give you and your family, “Peace of Mind”.
- Identify the source of the problem and the scope of the damage.
- Commence work immediately upon authorization.
- Occupants should be evacuated from the affected areas immediately.
- Take necessary steps to avoid “cross-contamination” from affected areas to unaffected areas by foot traffic or material handling.
- Technicians extract and/or pump out excessive water and sewage. After water/sewage removal, all affected areas should be decontaminated by spraying with a disinfectant solution.
- All affected materials should be evaluated for porosity. This inspection should determine materials as highly porous (saturated), semi porous, or nonporous.
- Highly porous materials that have been exposed to sewage and have a value that exceeds the cost of restoration such as high-value furniture and carpet, and upholstery, should be removed and restored off site. (If applicable)
- Semi porous materials include linoleum, carpet/pad, hardboard furniture, and construction materials such as wood, painted drywall and plaster, should be cleaned, disinfected, or replaced as part of the initial restoration process.
- Install an “air scrubber” machine to remove contaminated air.
- Install drying equipment which leads to thorough and prompt drying of the affected areas if needed.
- Technicians safely dispose of all bio hazardous waste and affected materials.
- Structural Restoration: In many cases sewage damage requires substantial structural restoration to return a home or commercial facility to the pre-loss condition. ServiceMaster Restoration Professionals is equipped to assist you through this entire process.
