Long Island Sewage Cleanup Services

Certified technicians available 24/7

iFlooded Restoration is always on hand to help recover your property and protect your health from sewage backups. Our team of fully certified technicians specializes in sewage backups and works 24/7 across Long Island.

We’ll always be there, whether you need us in the middle of the night or on a national holiday.

Long Island is a great place to live, but as with the rest of New York, it has its share of harsh winters, flooding, and even earthquakes. While these can cause property damage, people are often shocked at how serious a sewage backup can be. 

When a sewage backup impacts your property, acting quickly is essential. However, a quick response is just one element that defines whether your building and belongings will recover.

Trying to handle the situation on your own or hiring a substandard restoration company can worsen the problem and result in more expensive repairs. Contacting us can save you money and give you peace of mind.

Our IIRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification) technicians are fully qualified to treat sewer backups, water damage, mold growth, and smoke damage throughout the Long Island and New York areas.

We pride ourselves on offering an extremely professional service that doesn’t just treat the problem but identifies the root cause and prevents it from happening again.

If you’ve ever experienced a sewage backup, you’ll know three things:

  • It stinks

  • It’s damaging to your health and home

  • It always outstays its welcome 

Sewage backups are one of the worst things a property – and its inhabitants – can go through. If you don’t get help straight away, the damage will only worsen, and remediation will be more expensive.

Long Island Sewage Cleanup - The Process

Emergency services

As soon as you contact us, we’ll be at the scene as soon as possible. Upon arrival, our professionals will look at the damage and give you an estimate of the work involved and how much it will cost.

The first step of the sewage cleanup process is to remove any standing water and moisture. We use industry-grade tools for water extraction, enabling us to ensure the complete removal of any moisture.

After, we disinfect/bio-wash all the affected areas, and we’ll perform a proper inspection of the extent of your damage and document any losses, which will help you with your insurance claim.

Claim/Liaise with your insurance company

Our targeted remediation and restoration services include offering support when you claim on your insurance policy. We’ll liaise with your insurance company, ensuring the adjuster understands the extent of the damage. 

The drying process

Once we’re satisfied that we’ve removed any traces of bacteria from the affected area and sanitized your property, we’ll begin the drying process. It’s an essential step in any remediation job because moisture is a breeding ground for mold spores to grow, which leads to another potentially expensive issue.


Our certified professionals always go out of their way to recover your residential or commercial building, but it’s not always possible. You might have to dispose of some personal belongings and home furnishings because keeping them could lead to illnesses.

Raw sewage backups cause many problems, and while we work quickly and effectively, it’s not always possible to rescue everything. After all remediation and recovery work is complete, you can focus on rebuilding your business or house.

    The causes of sewage backups

    Sewage backups can result from a natural disaster, but in many cases, they’re actually due to human error.

    Common sewage backup culprits include hair, sanitary items, and non-degradable wipes, so it’s always best to check the instructions on the package before disposing of something in the toilet. 

    The most common causes of issues with sewer lines include:

    Putting grease and oil down the drains

    Most sewage backups will occur because people put oil and grease down the drain. This usually occurs in a kitchen area, and avoiding pouring grease into the kitchen sink can prevent sewage issues.

    General structural problems

    Over time a pipe can corrode and even collapse, creating backups. Maintaining your pipes can reduce the risks of blockages, but sometimes it’s an inevitable part of general wear and tear.

    Tree roots obstructing the sewer line 

    You might not be aware that tree roots are another significant cause of sewer problems. It’s common for tree roots to grow and expand into the sewage pipes, which creates an obstruction. When sewage can’t flow freely through the lines, it begins to back up.

    Flushing sanitary items down the toilet

    There’s a reason many hygiene items advise people to always dispose of things in the trash instead of the toilet or sink; they cause blockages! 

    Malfunctioning appliances

    Leaking washing machines and dishwashers can also cause issues in your building. You should always get help as soon as you spot a leak, even if it’s just one or two drops of water.

    Damage from floods

    When Long Island suffers from flooding, it will usually cause issues in your basement. Severe floods that leak into your property will probably have some bacteria, which might contain dead animals and human waste.

    Delaying the sewage backup cleanup process can lead to worse issues in the future

    If your building suffers a sewage backup, you’ll notice a powerful odor, and leaving it means it will be harder for us to remove any lingering smells altogether. 

    The odor is just the surface of the problem because sewage backups can lead to potential health risks, property damage, and the loss of valuable heirlooms and personal belongings.

    Structural damage

    Treating issues with your sewer line immediately is the best way to reduce the risks of damage to your property. When you leave sewage, it will inevitably sink into your flooring and walls, which can compromise the structural integrity of your property.

    It’s also near impossible to remove sewage when it seeps into insulation materials and flooring, meaning a more expensive repair job.

    Loss of personal belongings and valuable items

    Personal belongings such as furniture, clothing, tech items, and business materials are difficult to save, especially when sewer water damages them. Whether your belongings have monetary or sentimental value, losing them can be heartbreaking.

    It is possible to save some items, but only if we treat them quickly. Some people have insurance that allows them to replace valuable belongings, but losing family photo albums or heirlooms from relatives can be more devastating than the sewage backup itself.

    Health hazards

    Sewer water can cause many diseases, and the bacteria can linger in your home and your belongings. The only way to avoid this is to ensure a combative sewage cleanup process that thoroughly sanitizes the property.

    If you don’t treat your backup properly, it can create significant health hazards for people and pets. The bacteria in sewage backup water can cause vomiting, severe diarrhea, chest infections, skin reactions, and a sore throat.

    In severe cases, you can even catch Hepatitis A and E.Coli infections. While both diseases cause pain and sickness, you can recover from them, but the symptoms of Hepatitis A can take months to disappear, and they can return in severe cases.
