Water from sewer system backups is very dangerous. The water is unsanitary and may contain bacteria and viruses, which could make one sick. Special training and equipment are necessary to safely clean this type of contamination in a building. 

There are three major types of contaminated water. We will inspect that contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response to safely restore your home or business.

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.

Category 2: "Gray Water"

This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. This may come from washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

Category 3: "Black Water"

This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested. Any contact should be avoided. This happens when there are issues such as flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, or water from the toilet bowl with feces.

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

Water Damage Experts

Signs Your Sudbury Floor Needs Professional Help for Water Damage

When a water damage event happens in your commercial or residential property, the first thought is to clean it up yourself. Most people have mops, rags, and some have wet/dry vacuums to assist in wiping up the water. 

The downside to this action is that water migrates quickly and can wind up far away from the origination point, setting up your Sudbury, MA home for water damage. One example might be when a pipe breaks in an upper floor in a bathroom, gravity pulls the water downward, and it runs under the tile floor, between the floor joists and exists into the living room below, all over a couch and carpeted floor. If any moisture gets left behind in these areas, it can trigger issues such as mold or musty odors. 

Why SERVPRO? 

Our technicians use advanced detection equipment to thoroughly scope the property to determine the migration path of the water. This equipment ensures that the property has the water extracted and dried without the potential for issues after-the-fact. They use powerful extraction equipment and have specialized drying equipment to handle flooring of different types including hardwood floor, tile, and cement.  

Signs Water Remains On-Site

Giveaways that water damage is still within the property include any of the following: 

  • Warped or buckled sheetrock
  • Musty odors
  • Mold
  • Delaminated tiles
  • Effervescent on cement or brick
  • Bubbles in the paint on walls

Help With Rebuilding

Water ruins floors and sheetrock rapidly, and they often require removal as part of the restoration process. SERVPRO of Framingham is your one-stop, rebuild-to-remediation shop! When the remediation is complete we offer our clients the option seamlessly to our ReBuild team. This significantly reduces duration and cost of the total project!

Alert for the Signs of Mold 

If conditions are right, mold spores can germinate and begin to spread as fast in as little as 48 hours after a water loss in the home. Our technicians are experts in the identification and remediation of mold. They know the warning signs for colony establishment and how to safely remediate existing mold to avoid spreading spores throughout the home. 

We at SERVPRO of Framingham are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year, even holidays, to make any size water damage event, "Like it never even happened."

Is Your Shower Moldy?

1/30/2020 (Permalink)

Shower mold can be a frustrating problem. Mold grows in wet conditions, so it thrives in consistently moist areas such as bathrooms.
Thankfully, you do not have to live with a moldy shower. If the contamination is limited to a small area, you can attempt mold cleanup yourself. Below are some tips for removing black mold from your shower.

Stay Safe


Safety should be your top priority when you attempt to get rid of mold in your Southborough, MA home. Be sure to wear rubber gloves and old clothes. You should also open a window or use a fan to keep the bathroom ventilated. When you are finished with the black mold cleanup, take off your gloves and clothes immediately so they don’t spread spores throughout your home. You can then clean the clothes in the washing machine using hot water.

Create a Cleaning Solution

You next need to decide what solution to use to clean the shower mold. White vinegar is an effective and non-toxic choice. If you want a more natural cleaner, combine a gallon of water with a cup of Borax. Borax is a white powder you can usually find in the laundry aisle of your supermarket. Bleach can be dangerous and should only be used as a last resort.

Use the Solution

Whichever cleaning solution you choose should be poured into a spray bottle. You can then spray the entire affected area with the liquid. The cleaner should saturate the mold but not create any puddles. Then wipe away the mold and the cleaner using a cloth. If the mold remains stuck, try using a scrubbing brush. Shower mold stuck in caulking or grout should be scrubbed away with an old toothbrush.


By following the above suggestions, you can limit the mold damage in your home. If the problem persists, consider contacting your local mold remediation and cleanup experts here at SERVPRO of Framingham. We will make it, "Like it never even happened."

Ted and Doris Isaacson launched SERVPRO in 1967 as a painting business in Sacramento, Calif. With a background in cleaning and restoration, however, Ted and Doris soon transformed the company into a franchisor of cleanup and restoration specialists.

After selling its first Franchise in 1969, SERVPRO continued to grow, acquiring the Bristol-Myers Domesticare Division and its 175 Franchises in 1979.

SERVPRO relocated the corporate headquarters from Sacramento to Gallatin, TN, in 1988 in a strategic move to place itself within 600 miles of 50% of the U.S. population.

At the time of the relocation, the SERVPRO System consisted of 647 Franchises.

SERVPRO Corporate quickly became a key contributor in its community, and in 1991 the Nashville Business Journal named SERVPRO the Small Business of the Year. In the meantime the company continued its impressive growth, selling the 1,000th Franchise in 2000. Learn more about our Awards and Recognition.

In 2005, SERVPRO moved to a 140,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Gallatin to provide more room for expansion.

With a proud history, a successful present and a bright future, SERVPRO will press on toward becoming the premier cleaning and restoration company in the world.

The Power of Essential Oils

2/1/2019 (Permalink)

Have you ever worried about the antimicrobial products that you use? Sure they do the job but are they toxic? Are they suitable for use around children, pets, the chemically-sensitive or the elderly? Are they environmentally responsible & sustainable? Botanical products are the answer to all of these questions.

How can a disinfectant be less toxic than vinegar?

In nature, plants produce germ-killing 'essential oils' to protect themselves from invading microbes, similar to how our bodies produce antibodies for our protection. Benefect is a revolutionary blend of these antimicrobial extracts, particularly from the herb Thyme, and achieves remarkable efficacy ...without using any traditional synthetic chemicals

Here at SERVPRO we use Benefact. And people have asked what do we mean when we say Benefect is authentically botanical? “Authentic” is defined as not false or copied, genuine, real. “Botanical” means a substance obtained from a plant. Benefect was the world’s first and is still the ONLY authentically botanical disinfectant technology. It doesn’t use synthetic active ingredients but contains thyme and other essential oils, that are nonhazardous and sustainable, to kill the germs.

SERVPRO of Framingham Offers Air Duct Cleaning Too

2/1/2019 (Permalink)

According to the National Air Ducts Cleaners Association (NADCA) Air Duct cleaning is an important component to improving indoor air quality and having a healthy home.  In addition to normal accumulations of dust and dirt found in all homes with air ducts, there are several other factors that can increase the need for regular HVAC system cleaning:

  • pets
  • occupants with allergies or asthma
  • cigarette or cigar smoke
  • water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system
  • home renovation or remodeling projects

Some occupants are more sensitive to these contaminants than others. Allergy and asthma sufferers, as well as young children and the elderly tend to be more susceptible to the types of poor indoor air quality that air duct cleaning can help address.

 Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. Make it a priority to inspect the ductwork of your home or business.

If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating odors, dust and other contaminates.

SERVPRO of Framingham routinely inspect the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC).  Keeping them clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can in turn save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe.

Pipe Freezing Season

1/24/2019 (Permalink)

It’s January in New England, which means Pipe Freezing Season! Anyone who has experienced this unexpected disaster knows the extent to which it can cause damage and disruption to the comfort and security to your home. In addition, it is a common misnomer to think this only happens when you are away or when a home is vacated.   

     When water freezes, it expands and sadly what most people do not know is that even metal cannot contain this tremendous expansion. The pipes most susceptible to freezing are outdoor hose bibs, swimming pool supplies lines and water sprinkler lines are water supply pipes contained in unheated interior areas like basements, crawl spaces, attics, garages, and even kitchen cabinets. These pipes run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation.

    Flooding and water emergencies don’t wait for regular business hours and neither do we! SERVPRO Framingham provides emergency water restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In trouble? Give us a call and we will be there ASAP!
