Sewage Cleanup and Restoration
Sewage backups can be a hazardous and unpleasant experience. SERVPRO of Jackson Hole offers professional sewage cleanup services to restore your property to a safe and healthy condition.
Sewage backups can occur due to several reasons such as clogged drains, damaged pipes, or heavy rainfall. It's essential to address these issues immediately as sewage backups can pose a risk to your health and property.
Our team of experts uses specialized equipment and techniques to safely remove sewage backups from your property. We follow strict safety protocols and wear personal protective equipment to avoid exposure to harmful bacteria and viruses present in the sewage.
We first extract the sewage and contaminated water using powerful pumps and vacuums. We then dispose of the waste according to local regulations. After the removal process, we thoroughly clean and sanitize the affected areas using EPA-approved disinfectants.
We also use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the area and prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Our team also performs a final inspection to ensure that the area is safe and healthy to inhabit.
If you experience a sewage backup, it's crucial to avoid contact with the contaminated water and seek professional help immediately. At SERVPRO of Jackson Hole, we offer 24/7 emergency services and quick response times to mitigate the damage and prevent further contamination.

There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of Jackson Hole will inspect that contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response to safely restore your home or business.
The three types of contaminated water:
Category 1: "Clean Water"
This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.
- Water from a clean source like a broken water line
- If left untreated, can degrade into category 2 or 3
Category 2: "Gray Water"
This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.
- May contain bacteria and viruses
- Can quickly degrade into category 3 if left untreated
Category 3: "Black Water"
This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3 water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.
- May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
- Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup
