2nd Chance Water Restoration does clean sewage backup in Rockford. The best way to clean sewage in Rockford is to use anti-microbial soap and cold water with low pressure. Using strong disinfectants and harmful chemicals is not the best way to clean sewage. Dish soap is actually one of the best things to use to clean sewage in your home. The soap kills all the viruses, bacterial and other pathogens without poisoning everyone in the house. The soap is also a great surfactant, so it does a better job of getting sewage out of the pores and cracks in your home.
You also don't want to use steam or too much water too clean up the sewage damage. You want to use as little water as possible, so you don't make the water damage worse. Steam will also cause secondary damage and humidity issues.
This townhome in Rockford had a major sewage backup due to bad plumbing. The sump pump was dumping water into the sewer, so a small clog led to a backup. You should never have your sump pump tie into your sewer system. Sewer systems can get clog for any reason and you never know what other people flush. You are trusting your neighbors a lot, when you tie your sump pump into your sewer.
Sewage Floods Rockford Kitchen
Sewage floods Rockford kitchen due to clog in sewer line. It also didn't help that the plumber had the sump pump going into the sewer.
The sewage came out of the sink in the kitchen due it being the lowest drain in the house. Sewage also came out of the dishwasher too. The sewage got behind cabinets and also under the laminate floor on the way to the basement.
Sewage Destroys Laminate Floors
Sewage destroys laminate floors fairly quickly, so keep that in mind before putting it your kitchen or bathrooms. Too many people put in costly laminate floors next to sewer drains. Sewage destroys laminate floors and carpet, so we suggest tile, if possible.
Tile floors are able to resist sewage damage due to the ability to clean it and the grout. Cleaning sewage off tile and hard floors is a lot easier than trying to clean sewage off wood. Sewage gets under the laminate floors and in between the floor layers. The last thing you want is to leave sewage under a laminate floor. Sewage already comes with plenty of viruses, bacteria and other harmful things. There is no way to really clean all that out from underneath a laminate floor in Rockford.
