Sewage back-up in Emerald Isle
SERVPRO of Carteret and East Onslow Counties was called to a local home when the tenants discovered the septic tank had backed up into the empty apartment below. The entire space was affected including the walls, floors and all the personal belongings being stored there. This photo was taken after we had removed the contents as well as the wood paneling, insulation, and VCT flooring. Cleaning up behind sewage damage is expensive and there is usually significant reconstruction after the mitigation is complete. That's why SERVPRO recommends that you review your homeowners policy from time to time, it's important to know that you have adequate coverage for this type of loss. Unfortunately, the owner of this home did not and had to take a loss on all of their personal belongings.
