Sewage backup in a basement is a very dangerous risk of health if you or your family exposes themselves to these biological and or chemical contaminants. This water is highly unsanitary and could cause serious illness through its high level of bacteria and viruses. Though sewage removal itself is even more of a risky task, we have the specialized training and experience to provide you with the best sewage removal services available. 

Sewer backups can be caused by a variety of reasons. This could range from an aging sewer system, tree roots entering sewer lines, broken or collapsed sewer lines, a sump pump failure, or even too much rainwater or melted snow entering the sewer system at once. To prevent a sewer backup you must be careful of what goes down your drains always first and foremost. Secondly, it is important to install a backwater valve or alternatively known as a backflow valve.
