Do you know that when your sewer backs up, you can be exposed to dangerous bacteria and viruses that can cause serious illness? Sewer water is grossly unsanitary and should be mitigated by trained professionals. At SERVPRO® of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties, our technicians have the equipment, training, and experience to safely clean and restore areas compromised by sewer water. Here are the three classifications for contaminated water:

  • It May contain bacteria and viruses
