Sewage back up in Northern Virginia
Please schedule regular maintenance of your sewer lines to prevent back ups like this.
The sewage back up which occurred in the basement on this two story home was the result of a clogged sewer line. The underground sewer main was not able to properly dispose the waste. When this takes place, raw sewage will exit other lines in the home, in most cases the shower drain. Notice the unsanitary mess that this can cause in your place of residence. The tenant contacted the landlord who then immediately called a plumber, and shortly after SERVPRO of Alexandria. Once the front line was notified of the loss, we quickly dispatched a crew to help. Our team rushed to the scene to extract, clean, sanitize, and dry the affected areas. "Like it never even happened."
