2nd Chance’s IICRC-certified technicians have been certified to extract sewage, minerals and sewage water. They will remove porous materials including furniture, cardboard boxes, books, rugs, carpeting, bedding and any other cellulose items, which have absorbed the sewage water.
After the sewage is removed, industrial size air movers are brought in to blow air around the affected area. The air flow evicts water that is trapped in walls, floors, furniture, and other water damaged materials allowing it to escape into the air. Our industrial size low grain refrigerant dehumidifiers remove the humidity, or moisture from the air to get your home or commercial building dry, which prevents more damage and mold growth.
Any items that are nonporous, such as tiles and hard floors, we can clean them. Our technicians will use eco-friendly antimicrobials to totally cleanse the affected area.

Causes of Sewage Damage:
Sewage problems can occur for a variety of reasons including a broken sewer main, backed up sewers, clogged drains, flushing of wipes and feminine products and many other things. Sewage backup can cause dangerous black mold growth in a hurry, because of all the organic waste that is in it, which mold eats and grows off very easily causing even more health risk.
The most common cause for sewage backup problems include:
Flushing solids- the most common cause for sewage backup is a blockage in a sewer drain that has been caused by things like hair, wipes, feminine products, kitty litter, or simple household grease. Don’t flush large objects like sanitary napkins, flushable wipes, or diapers.
Plumbing And Structural Defects- cracks, breaks, pipe collape, misaligned pipe, or open/broken plumbing joints, or bends in pipes.
Tree Roots- tree roots often enter the sewer pipes at joints and travel a very long way clogging the pipe up and preventing sewage from removing itself into the sanitary sewer system. These roots cause sewage backup damage and they can also destroy your sewer systems, if you don’t rod them out often enough.
Blockage of city sanitary sewers- blockage in the city of Chicago’s sewer systems happen often and for a variety of reasons. These blockages will cause sewage from the main sewer drains to back flow into homes, businesses, and basements across the city from time to time.
Flooding of sanitary sewer systems- this happens, when there is simply too much rain, or flood water going through the city sewer systems for the drains to keep up.
Sewage back ups are seriously disgusting and perhaps the most disgusting thing that can happen to your basement, home, business, or property, but the great news is that is largely preventable.
Sewage backup prevention tips:
- Never dump grease down any drains, toilets, or through your garbage disposal.
- Never flush disposable wipes, paper products of any kind other than single ply toilet paper, sanitary napkins, or paper towels down the toilet.
- Avoid planting trees, or bushes that can spread roots that invade and destroy your sewer lines.
- Replace your line with new plastic pipe to prevent tree roots from entering your line.
- Do not connect any downspout drains or sump pumps to the sewer line.
- Locate and keep accessible the sewer cleanout in your front yard, side of house, or basement.
- Modify the plumbing line so that water is pumped to an upper level drain, eliminating the need for drains at the lower level.
- Make sure to cap those drains.
- Perform periodic cleaning to eliminate grease, paper products, wipes, feminine products, debris and roots in your service laterals.
- Install a back flow prevention valve, which allows sewage to flow out of your sanitary lines, but not back into your basement. This back flow valve can protect against most of these sewage problems.
