Our sewage damage restoration Process
After assessing the damage and creating our plan of action, our team members will start extracting the sewage waste off your floor, picking up any debris, removing any affected carpeting and carry your personal items out into your garage or other safe place where we will clean and sanitize the salvageable items.
Because of the presence of harmful bacteria, a sewage backup is classified as a Category 3 loss, meaning we will remove and dispose of any porous materials effected including: carpet, padding, clothing, rugs, towels, etc. Dealing with a sewer loss, we take great precaution to ensure we do not cross contaminate unaffected areas of your building with dirty boots or equipment.
Next, we will examine your walls with a moisture tester around all the affected areas. Once the moisture readings are established, we will determine if we need to take further precaution in assisting the walls to dry using a ventilation method, or if sections or drywall will need to be removed all together. We then begin our mitigation procedure by bringing in industrial air movers and dehumidifiers to further help the drying out process.
Over the next few days we will be monitoring the moisture and relative humidity in your drywall and other effected areas until we are satisfied with the testers readings. Then, we will start the process of removing our equipment, and carefully replacing all of your belongings back into your home. Around this time, your insurance company should send out an adjuster to assess the areas damaged and take photos. Some insurance companies will opt out of sending an adjuster, no worries! 1-800 Water Damage has your back and will contact your insurance company personally to insure they have the correct information. All we need is the claims number and your insurance representatives email address.

What To Do If Your Toilet is Overflowing, Follow our steps below:
Remove the lid of your toilet tank, reach inside the tank and lift up the bottom of the fill valve or float to stop the water from refilling. Hold the float up to prevent it from refilling the toilet. You can also pull out the refill tube from the overflow valve to stop the water from refilling the tank.
Locate the water shut off valve near the base of your toilet, and turn it until the water shuts off. If your toilet does not have this valve, continue to step 3.
Turn off your home’s main water supply. This should be the final step. However, if your toilet is still overflowing after step 3, then you may have a serious sewerage issue. If this happens, call your local plumber
