Sewage Damage from a Storm in Chicago, IL
During summer storms in August this home was a victim to sewage back up. With heavy rains and city sewage system overwhelmed, the sewage didn’t have anywhere to go besides back into people’s homes. In this home it came in through the shower drain in the basement shower. The SERVPRO crew came in and extracted all the standing water, cleaned all the floors + shower with a SERVPRO disinfectant, and dried the space with dehumidifiers and air movers. Air movers is just a fancy way of saying fans. The homeowner was thrilled that she could let her dog back into the basement rec room and not be worried that he would get sick from the sewage.
