Sewage Backup - What To Do


Unfortunately, with all the rain we have had in Grand Rapids this year, we have also had a lot of flooding, and one of the side-effects of flooding, an increase in sewage backup calls. Sewage is potentially a hazardous clean-up situation. Any spaces that come into contact with sewage or water backed up through sewer lines can contain harmful contaminants, including bacteria and other microbes. Foul odors can also develop as a result of a sewer backup. Handling sewage is extremely hazardous, so the clean-up process should only be completed by professionals.

Fortunately, we can help!
