Restoration After Sewage and Flood Damage

Sewage backup into residences can be one of the most complicated situations a homeowner faces. Because of the clear contamination concerns and the rapid spread of this compromised backup water, it is a destructive and alarming situation to experience. With conditions like Port Jefferson recently experienced with snow and rain, threats like sewage backup become even more significant. Rely on our SERVPRO® technicians to safely restore your property.

Our service area includes thousands of properties in Setauket directly connected to sewage and wastewater disposal systems. When the region experiences heavy precipitation, the ground becomes saturated, and any excess water can cause a surcharge that pushes water back up through the system to its residential connection points.
