When you think of water damage you probably think of standing water from a flood, a burst pipe, or maybe an appliance in your home or business that has a leak and has caused flooding. You probably don’t think of sewer backup when you think of a source of water damage. Sewer backups can be one of the worst types of water damage to your home or business.
There are different factors that can cause a sewer backup such as aging pipes, tree roots, and backups or clogs in the main city line. Sewage can then start coming into your home through drains in the floors of basements, toilets, and even bathtubs. This type of water in your home or business can lead to disease, damage to your walls, floors, and furniture, electrical malfunction, and can eventually lead to mold development.
As with any water damage, getting it cleaned up quickly and properly is the key to preventing any further damage. SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro is here to help and can take care of any water damage that your home or business might experience. Give us a call (513) 422-9200.
