  • Removal of Sewage Contaminated Items - Most items that are contaminated from sewer backups cannot be salvaged. For your safety and the safety of your family belongings affected by sewage need to be removed. The problem is that bacteria and viruses are able to live very well in anything that is porous like carpet and drywall. We make sure that what can be saved is, and what must be removed is removed correctly.
