Oops, Left the Water Running? SERVPRO Can Respond to Mitigate the Water Damage to a Sterling Home

When Dangerous Water Damage Hits Home in Sterling

Though all water damage is problematic, not all are equal. When your Sterling home has a backed up sewer line, it is more than just "some water" to clean up. For the health and safety of you and your loved ones, you need to take immediate action. We're Faster to Any Size Disaster. SERVPRO is available 24 hours a day, whenever you need us. We can dispatch a team of highly trained professionals to assess and address hazardous water damages quickly.
The average homeowner doesn't take special classes on mitigating water damage. You almost certainly don't own safety equipment to clean up Black Water in your Sterling home. Trying to DIY cleanup for Class 3 water damage can be hazardous to your health. Understanding different kinds of water damage and how to treat them is (part of) what we do. SERVPRO technicians are IICRC certified and fully equipped for messy situations like backed up sewage or a simple leak under the sink. We handle all types of water cleanup.
When your water enters your home from a burst pipe or condensation, it's what we call Cass 1 water damage. This means the water is clean and unused.
Class 2 water damage comes from Gray water. It isn't called gray because of color, but rather because it has waste products in it. This water is used. When a washing machine is running and overflows, this is an example of gray water. Used water may cause sickness if ingested or touched.
It's important to call in professionals in any water damage situation, but Black Water or Class 3 is the most dangerous to your health. SERVPROs dedicated staff use extensive protective equipment for removal and mitigation of sewage and other biologically hazardous cleanups. PPE personal protective equipment is crucial for safe and secure cleanup and restoration.
Water removal and drying is only part of the process. You need good deodorizing and biocide treatments so you can take back your home safely after a hazardous incident and feel “Like it never even happened.”
When your water damage makes your eyes water, don't risk your health. You need special treatment right away. Contact SERVPRO of Fitchburg-Leominster at (978) 537-1500 anytime day or night.
