Restorex was quick to come out after our sump pump float failed to engage the pump. They ran a machine over the basement carpet to try to pull the water out and into the sump pit after the pump was working. Afterwards, they installed about 20 fans and 2 large dehumidifiers for 3 days to continue to dry out the carpet. Very friendly and easy to talk to guys.

Corbin was very informitive, was also very pproffesional and curtious with me each time we spoke or visited. I felt he went above expectations on the entire task at hand. Corbin handled the entire project start to finish and offered additional suggestion along the way to better my problem with the mold. He handled a roof and deck replacement along with remaining mold remediation. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMEND RESTOREX SHOULD I EVER NEED IN THE FUTURE, THANKS CORBIN! Restorex and Corbin is what services should be. Dan O

Corbin, Terry and the crew went above and beyond to make our worst nightmare turn into a dream come true. We purchased a house in Oct 2021 and 2 hours after closing we had a fire. They were quick to come out and start the process of making our home better than before ! They were very kind and hard working , never hesitated to answer any of our questions or concerns and walked us through the process and even took some matters in their own hands ! As first home owners and our first fire, things were scary, confusing and very stressful! But thanks to them they made the process easy and worked very hard to get us into our home ! They even went out of their way to help get our appliance in the home and hooked up which wasn’t expected of them ! They still are responsive and quick to help ! I highly recommend reaching out if you’re in need of amazing work and want nice and respectful crew ! Super clean work and overall amazing people ! I couldn’t thank them enough !

Corbin spent 20 minutes on the phone with us yesterday trying to diagnose a leak situation behind a load bearing wall. He was extremely patient with us while asking us just the right questions to sufficiently solve our problem without even coming to our house. I would not hesitate to call him again or recommend him and his business! He knows his stuff!!

When our sump pump, back-up, and water sensor alarm all failed, and we ended up with water in our basement, we did a Google search and are so happy that we found Restorex! Corbin took my call late on Sunday night and came to our house first thing on Monday morning to assess and make a plan. His crew was out within an hour and immediately got started on getting the carpet removed and their equipment in place to dry everything out. They were all so nice and polite and worked very hard and efficiently. They made a situation no one wants to deal with as pleasant and painless as possible. Hopefully, we never have another flooding situation, but if we do, I will absolutely call them again!

Brian G. was amazing at inspecting our rental unit crawl space. We had some standing water concerns and weren’t sure if it had caused damage, needed some repairs, or was okay. He provided some great advice on steps to take next. I was pleased Restorex doesn’t try to upsell, and has our best interest in mind. Will definitely use them again!

Brian Granger and his crew are top notch! We have known him for a couple of years and already liked and respected him. When we had a major water leak he was the one we knew to call and were not disappointed.

Below are some common questions our customers ask about their insurance policies.

Sewage

“Sewage” is the wastewater that comes from the drains of your house.  This includes your toilets, showers, sinks, dishwasher, and washing machine.  This water has contaminants that normally flow away from your house and into a sewer system.  Eventually, this water would end up at your local sewage treatment facility.

Unfortunately, when a drain line breaks, this sewage can find its way into your living space causing bad smells and can make your home unclean while it is present.  This is why its important that you get the sewage cleaned up quickly and properly.

Sewage Water Removal

If you are experiencing a sewage backup in a basement, most likely you have a large amount of sewage water that needs to be removed.  Because of the contaminants and odors, this requires us to use personal protective equipment, such as full faced respirators and nylon protective suits.

We also have a piece of equipment to properly remove sewage water.  This equipment has a large vacuum unit that is attached to a 300 gallon tank.  The vacuum provides the suction required to remove the water from the basement and then the water is stored in the tank during the cleanup process.

After the majority of the sewage water is removed from the basement, we will continue to dilute and wash the area with water.

When all of the water and contaminants are removed, we are ready to sanitize the affected areas.

Sanitizing Sewage Damage

We use a product called Benefect to sanitize the surfaces that have been affected by sewage.

Benefect is a broad spectrum disinfectant and it surpasses all of the governments germ killing requirements for hospital disinfectants.  The other great benefit of using Benefect is that it has the lowest toxicity level compared to other disinfectant products.

Benefect is a made using plant based essential oils.  These essential oils help plants protect themselves from invading microbes, much like the human body produces antibodies to protect itself.  Therefore, Benefect, is like a plant immune system in a bottle.

We will apply this product to all of the affected areas after the large contaminants and water are removed.

Drying after Sewage Removal

After all of the sewage is removed from the affected area and all the surfaces have been sanitized, the structure now has to be dried back to its original moisture content.

Now, the job becomes a water damage restoration or water mitigation.  First, all of the porous building materials that we affected with sewage would be removed.  This includes carpet, pad, drywall, baseboards etc.  The living space would be stripped down to its structural members.

Then we will set up water damage equipment, to dry the structure so there will be no risk of mold damage.

Crawl Space Sewage Cleanup

Crawl spaces are very susceptible to sewage damage because the drain lines for the home typically run through this area.  When there is an issue with waste water drains, the sewage water tend to find its way into the crawl space.  Another issue that arises, is most people do not notice there is an issue until they begin to smell the bad odors.

So when the home owner discovers there is a problem, there is usually a good size pool of sewage water in their crawl space.  It takes a lot of effort to cleanup sewage in a crawl space.  Crawl spaces typically do not have a lot of room to maneuver, which can make removing the sewage difficult.

We will start the process by removing the vapor barrier, which will bring out a lot of solids that were dumped into the crawl space.  Next, we will begin removing the sewage water that is left behind.  After, the water is removed we will begin to remove some of the containment soil that has been affected by the sewage.  We will also apply hydrated lime to the soil to decontaminate it.  Hydrated lime is an essential product used in many waste water treatment processes.

If the sewage water caused the wooden structure in the crawl space to absorb moisture, then we would set drying equipment for 3 days to dry out the crawl space before applying hydrated lime and re-installing the vapor barrier.

Cost of Sewage Cleanup

For a significant sewage cleanup, you are looking at a cost between 5000 – 8000 dollars.  This would be a grossly contaminated crawlspace or basement.  If a home owner is having one of these situations, we would recommend a insurance claim and to use a professional water damage restoration company.

What if you have a small amount sewage damage from a toilet overflow or a small drain backup?

The cost would be significantly lower.

The cost would range between 1000 – 2000 dollars depending on the severity.  Sometimes these situations don’t justify having a professional restoration company to be involved, but it does require someone to do the dirty work of cleaning up sewage.
