Sewer backup, cleaned up by SERVPRO of Black Hawk County!
When sewer backup occurs, it destroys everything in its path. Unfortunately this Cedar Falls, Iowa home basement experienced just that! Basements are often used as a primary place for storage. Consider keeping items up off the floor in cases of sewer back up or a water issue. When SERVPRO of Black Hawk County arrived for cleanup, all of the homeowner’s belongings had to be removed prior to sterilizing the floor and walls.
Dry wall is a very porous material and wicked up the sewer mess in the basement. In this case you cannot save it. You must cut away the dry wall as evident in the after photo. Sewer back-up, cleaned-up by SERVPRO of Black Hawk County. 319.268.1521.
