Sewage Damage Prep

If you haven’t had to deal with sewage damage in the past, count yourself lucky. Sewage damage is a messy health hazard that you don’t want to find yourself having to deal with. However, many home and business owners will experience sewage disasters at some point during their ownership. Sewage damage can come from backed up sewage lines, toilet clogs and overflows and even from outside water from flooding.
