Sewer Backup, Not Part of the Phone Plan

A call to a friend, check-ins with a loved one, a happy birthday message, a congratulations-- these are the kind of calls that we like to get in life. A call due to sewage backup is one of the least fun calls that a commercial business owner has to make. It is not fun for the owner, and while we are in the restoration business, we never want anyone to be going through a mess! We always work to prepare and prevent.


The SERVPRO crew worked on a job at a local phone store after sewage backup came ringing.

When these catastrophes arise, we understand how important it is to get the mess cleaned up so your commercial business can be back up and running with no stinky mess.

That is what we did for this local commercial phone store.

Our team ensured that the sewage was cleaned thoroughly. You might think that counts as a job well done, however, at SERVPRO of Black Hawk County, we thoroughly inspect to make sure there are no other damages. In this case, there was more to it. Along with the sewer backup, came significant water damage that required drying equipment.

The technicians on the job went back to check on the drying process throughout the process and even drilled some holes into the drywall to ensure that the moisture was completely addressed. When all the readings showed that the structure had been completely dried, the job was now done.


While some disasters are non-preventable there are ways to limit damage, and it is best to always be prepared in the event that they happen. Put SERVPRO’s number into your phone so as soon as that sewer backup comes ringing, we can be out there to address the problem at hand and minimize damage!
