What is Sewage Damage?

Sewage damage is technically classified as a category 3 cleanup and is common referred to as black water. This type of water damage can contain viruses, bacteria, parasites and other harmful contaminants that can cause serious illness or even death. Sewage damage occurs when sewage backs up into your home, or highly contaminated floodwaters enter your home.

Because of the high level of contamination and potential for illness, we recommend hiring a professional sewage damage cleanup and restoration company to protect your health and limit exposure to the contaminated water. At Stover’s Restoration, we use state-of-the-art equipment and have extensive training to ensure your home is safe and clean following sewage damage.
