Sewage Backup Lafayette, LA
Sewer Water in Lafayette Home
This bedroom in a home in Lafayette, LA was next to a bathroom that had a sewage backup. Also known as "black water" sewage carries a lot of bacteria. It is imperative to have it cleaned by professionals. Insurance coverage will pay the bulk of the cleaning bill, leaving only the deductible to be paid by the homeowners.
To prevent the spread and growth of microbial bacteria the crew from SERVPRO of Lafayette removed 36 inches of and treated the remaining materials with a disinfectant. The drywall is very porous and cannot be sanitized enough to be safe. Therefore it needs to be removed as well as carpet and pad.
