Contain & Prevent Cross-Contamination
Identify and contain the affected area to prevent cross-contamination into other areas of the home or property.
Disposal of Sewage
Remove and properly dispose of the sewage, contaminants and water using specialty extraction equipment to prevent the spread of bacteria through the home.
Follow the standards of care for black water and remove contaminated building materials such as carpet and pad, tack strips, drywall, flooring materials, and insulation.
Clean & Deodorize
Thoroughly decontaminate and clean the affected areas using a high temperature, low pressure, steam cleaning process (bio-washing).
Set up drying system to dry structure quickly.
Conduct a final inspection to ensure all contamination has been removed permanently. (Upon owners request, we can do E. coli testing to confirm proper decontamination and clean up.)
