Cleaning Up after Sewage Backups in El Centro

Producing goods in your factory in El Centro require clean facilities and functioning equipment. This extends to employee washrooms and basements, too. Both of these areas contain drains that lead to connections with the municipal sewer system.

When clogs or other blockages buildup in these larger sewer systems in El Centro because of construction or other issues, sewage can back up inside your facility. Contamination like this requires extraction of wastewater and subsequent cleanup. Our IICRC-certified crews are ready for mitigation of such messes and the restorative cleaning tasks involved in making things safe again, “Like it never even happened.”

In addition to the extraction of Category 3 water backing up into your factory, we also use odor control methods to eliminate the odors that linger in the area. Such smells can invade materials in the same location. Uniforms, linens, and other textile-related items easily retain odor-causing particles after absorbing them. Our methods help prevent this from happening, saving you the inconvenience of re-laundering otherwise clean items. Running a hydroxyl generator while we work makes the area much more pleasant for our employees and starts the odor control process.

Our technicians quickly move at-risk items on the floor into safer locations, inventorying those items that the sewage destroyed. It is nearly impossible to satisfactorily clean items contaminated with sewage that invaded your facility. These lists that detail your inventory can help with insurance loss claims.

Once the area is free of sewage, we can begin cleaning up using antimicrobial agents that kill germs and make hard, non-porous surfaces sanitary again. Because of the possibility of cross-contamination with clean areas of your facility, we use personal protective equipment (PPE) that includes coverings for our footwear. Shedding these before leaving the area prevents the spread of any trace amounts of sewage.

SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City has the necessary equipment to remove sewage and other Category 3 messes from your factory in Calexico, Heber, or Salton City. Cleaning the area and deodorizing are both crucial steps in restoring your property fully. Call our 24-hour emergency line, (760) 337-5858, 365 days a year.
