Sewage & Water Damage Cleanup
When your plumbing fixtures fail, or when a storm hits your area, water can quickly become a problem. Heavy rain combined with partially blocked sewers can often cause sewage backups. If floodwater inside your home is not addressed promptly, your walls, as well as your carpet, flooring, ceiling and personal property can quickly become damaged, creating an environment for bacteria, rot and mold growth.
The plumbing professionals at Roto-Rooter are trained to work with homeowners and businesses alike, offering prompt water damage clean up and repair service that you can trust. We are available 24/7, 365 days a year, when you need service most. Our water and sewage cleanup services include the following:
- Broken pipes and failing plumbing fixtures or appliances. The experts at Roto-Rooter have expertise in water damage cleanup and plumbing repair, including sump pumps, water heater failures, broken pipes and leaks from your washing machine, dishwasher and ice maker.
- Sewage damage from your toilet and sewer & drain backups.
- Flooding created by severe weather, whether it be heavy rain or ground water flooding your basement.
Cleaning a home after water damage is an extensive and important task. Simple do-it-yourself drying techniques are often not enough when removing water from your home or office. Your carpet, walls and floor coverings are porous which means a simple cleaning will not suffice, and extensive water damage cleaning is required. All surfaces affected by water damage must be thoroughly dried, cleaned, disinfected and deodorized by trained and certified water restoration professionals in order to eliminate disease-causing bacteria, fungi and other viruses before the area is safe for humans again. The actual cleaning and drying time of your contents is dependent upon the extent of the water damage. While some clean-up efforts can take 2 days, many may take longer.
Roto-Rooter will promptly clean the contents of any areas affected by water damage, while removing any non-salvageable possessions, if applicable. Our extensive cleaning process includes the application of anti-microbial agents and deodorizers, as well as air-cleaning utilizing our state-of-the art equipment. The advanced Roto-Rooter water mitigation equipment is not removed from your home or business until our temperature, humidity and moisture testing confirms that all affected areas have been dried to acceptable levels according to industry certification standards. Roto-Rooter will send the bill for services directly to your insurance company, relieving you of the burden during a very stressful time.
When water emergencies strike, make sure to leave the water cleanup operations to the experts at Roto-Rooter. We understand the need to get your home or office back in order as quickly as possible.

Mold Prevention & Remediation
Simple drying techniques are often not enough when removing water from areas it is not supposed to be. Your carpet, walls and floor coverings are porous which means a simple cleaning will not suffice and extensive water damage cleaning is required. Surface cleaning only removes visible contamination, but significant quantities of microorganisms are often left behind, which can potentially cause health problems as well as unpleasant odors. All surfaces affected by water damage must be thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and deodorized by trained professionals in order to properly eliminate disease-causing bacteria, fungi and other viruses before the area is safe for humans again.

Water Damage Insurance
Insurance companies are not always clear when it comes to explaining your coverage in the event of a water emergency. Your insurance coverage can vary a great deal depending on the provider, as well as the specific policy and any applicable riders. It is best to know the details when assessing your insurance coverage and starting the water damage cleanup process.
Your specific coverage is dependent on your homeowner’s policy guidelines and deductibles. Check with your insurance provider about your policy details for more information and to stay fully informed in the event of an emergency.
Typically, most insurance companies cover unexpected water damage. Damage caused by an ongoing issue or structural problem may not be covered. Before we start any work, the plumbing professionals at Roto-Rooter will contact your insurance carrier to determine your coverage. We will also work directly with your local adjuster throughout the process, making it less of a headache for you. Your insurance carrier may determine coverage by the cause and extent of the damage, and some coverage may be limited.
Roto-Rooter’s estimators are experienced at dealing with insurance companies and local adjusters. Our prompt team of professionals will thoroughly document your loss, with photos taken before work begins, during the cleanup and restoration process, and after our work is completed. We will also include sketches and drying logs as part of our water damage cleanup process. Our experts will work hard to ensure a hassle-free experience for you from start to finish.
