Raw sewage floating down the street ... five feet of water in basements ... more than 20 homes flooded. What a disaster! Fast, professional remediation is needed and soon!

SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield recently partnered with two other nearby SERVPRO franchises (owned by the same management team) to successfully tackle a water disaster that numerous other disaster remediation companies couldn’t handle. On October 3, 2018 water and sewer lines in West Hartford, Connecticut were being replaced when a 60-foot-long section of new pipe liner collapsed after a rainstorm. The resulting blockage forced waste water to gush into the street. Before long, the basements of almost two dozen homes in the neighborhood were flooded and four families were displaced.

Call in the SERVPRO Cavalry!

The first SERVPRO teams to arrive found a nasty scene: the street and many driveways were flooded with dark, foul water and multiple homes were inundated with the reeking biohazard. The crews went into action, pumping out basements, drying out structures and property and removing damaged items.

All three SERVPRO franchises owned by Ralph and Noemi DiCristofaro (SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield, SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield and SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield) sent crews and equipment to tackle this extraordinary and rapidly-worsening disaster. Together, these franchises own thousands of pieces of equipment and scores of vehicles, and employ more than a hundred professionals. Those resources of equipment and manpower allow us to respond rapidly to disasters of just about any size and type.

Biohazard Cleanup Pros to the Rescue

One key to our success on the West Hartford sewage disaster was our expertise in biohazard cleanup. All our crews are up to date in OSHA training and state health regulations. They were ready for even the toughest job!

Although other disaster remediation companies were called to the scene, each one dropped out of the project after initial work—they couldn’t keep up with the amount and difficulty of the remediation efforts needed.

In the end, SERVPRO cleaned the majority of the affected houses, drying and disinfecting structures and property. On this incredibly challenging and urgent disaster, SERVPRO safely and promptly restored homes, property and lives.
