When a sewage damage loss occurs it can expose your loved ones to harmful contaminants and microorganisms that may be present in sewage waste. Please be aware that when your belongings come in contact with the sewage waste they can also become contaminated and require professional attention. Professional Restoration Systems works to eliminate health dangers and prevent secondary mold growth, odor problems, and structural damage.

When a sewage damage emergency occurs, some of the first steps are similar to a water damage loss. If possible find the source of the water and stop it.  Next, make sure that the power is turned off if there is standing water on the floor.  Once that is done you want to immediately call Professional Restoration Systems at (203) 881-9511, one of our professionals will quickly schedule a crew to come out to your location.  If you are in New Haven or Fairfield County we will be there within 90 minutes of your call!
