"Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you"

Yes these may be just popular song lyrics from Lynyrd Skynyrd, but how real are those words? When issues with septic back up happen, this is not something you want to do as a DIY weekend project with your spouse. Let the professionals at SERVPRO take care of you. We have the equipment needed to get the job done in a timely and hassle free manner. 

Believe it or not, flushing toilets only began in the late 1800's, and while we are fortunate enough to live in a time that allows us to drain the waste into a city sewage system, that doesn't always mean that it is one hundred percent foul proof.

Pay attention for the first signs that you may have an issue:

  • Uncommon Sounds. The sound of constantly running water signals trouble in the sewer line. ...
  • Moist Floor. Floors that feel spongy or moist underfoot are telltale signs of sewer leakage. ...
  • Unpleasant Odors. ...
  • Cracks in Your Home. ...
  • Landscape Growth. ...
  • Rats Problem. ...
  • Higher Water Bill.

Depending on your perception, Life is like a sewer, what you get out of it is what you put into it (Tom Lehrer). And sometimes it actually STINKS!
