Commercial Sewage Backup Clean-Up Services
Protect Your Business from Extensive & Costly Damage
More than damaging your business, sewage backups and flooding can be a health hazard. Sewage and floods can contain bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens that can cause disease and illness. While sewer back-ups are most commonly found in private service lines, they can also be the result of problems in the main sewer line in the street. At ServiceMaster Restore®, we have the process, the training, and the experience to not only clean up but to help eliminate bacteria and germs.
What Causes Sewer Backups?
There are a variety of reasons why your sewer can backup. It’s a perfectly common situation that many commercial property owners face. Some of the most common causes are:
- Soil settlement
- Misaligned joints
- Root infiltration
- Pipe collapses
- Grease buildup
- Items flushed down a drain
Flooding results when the volume of water runoff from a storm is greater than a drainage system’s capacity.
When this occurs, two types of problems can result:
- The overland flow of stormwater enters a property through an opening such as a door, window, or cracks in the building’s foundation.
- Heavy rains increase the water elevation in the sewer system and cause backflow through the sewer pipeline and into a business.

Our expert sewage cleanup services follow these proven steps:
- Removal of contaminated furnishings, carpet and flooring, and when necessary, remove and dispose of other items that have been exposed to potential contamination.
