Sewage backups are the some common source of blackwater damage. Blackwater damage is highly toxic and can cause severe health issues and property damage if not dealt with as soon as possible. It is very important when you discover a sewage backup to not try and deal with it yourself. Sewage waste is host to a slew of bacteria. Even with the proper safety equipment, an untrained worker could still be exposed to health hazards.
A sewage backup can begin long before it poses a threat to your health or property. If you start to notice issues when flushing, it could be an early sign of a sewage backup. The most obvious signs of a backup occur when it’s too late to prevent damages. Toilets will overflow when flushed, and your yard could become a swamp, depending on where your sewage lines lie.
When you discover or suspect a sewage backup, it’s imperative to act quickly. Because blackwater damage is so toxic, it’s best to avoid staying in any structure that is affected by it. If your home has a sewage backup, try to arrange to stay with a friend or family member until clean-up and restoration are complete.
After ensuring the safety of you and your family, call your insurance company to begin the process of making a claim. Our technicians will provide you with an itemized list of the damages caused by the backup, along with a time and money estimate to fix them. Most insurance policies will cover the cost of repairs.
Burst pipes are less toxic and hazardous than sewage backups, but they can still cause serious damage to your home if not found and fixed. Burst pipes can some commonly lead to serious mold issues. Because pipes are often behind walls, there’s a good possibility you won’t even notice a burst pipe until it’s too late. Burst pipes lead to dripping water damage that can sit for an extended period of time, causing issues for your home’s structure and electrical components.
Some burst pipes will be easy to locate if they are visible, such as under the sink pipes. Others, however, can be difficult to identify if they are located behind walls. There are two main ways to identify a hidden burst pipe. The first is through sound. A leaky pipe will make a soft dripping sound, but a burst pipe is likely to have more force behind it. You should be able to hear a burst pipe fairly easily if the room is quiet. You’ll also be able to identify a burst pipe visually. The large amounts of water a burst pipe can cause will swiftly affect the walls it’s behind. If you notice peeling or bubbling wallpaper and discolored stains on your walls, you probably have a burst pipe.
As with any other source of water damage, timing is of the essence when it comes to a burst pipe. Left untreated, a burst pipe can lead to mold, structural damages, and even further pipe damage. As soon as you discover or suspect a burst pipe, unplug any electrical items plugged into nearby outlets. Water can leak into outlets and onto electrical wires, causing serious issues if appliances are used.
Most insurance policies will cover the cost of repairs for a burst pipe. Take pictures of the damages and keep a list of any insured items that were damaged by the water. Our technicians can provide you with an itemized list of the damages sustained to help your claim be processed faster.
