The insurance claims professionals at Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters offer solutions to property owners facing sanitary sewer overflow damage.

Mesa, AZ, April 27th, 2015 -- Sanitary sewer overflows happen every day across the nation.  When they occur they can spread raw sewage into homes and businesses and cause extensive damage and the risk of disease in both indoor and outdoor environments.


These unpleasant occurrences can be caused by many factors, but they are typically associated with sewer pipe blockages caused by pipe breaks or cracks due to tree roots, system deterioration, insufficient system capacity and construction mishaps.  For those unfortunate enough to have this occur in their home or place of business there are environmental, health and safety concerns that need to be addressed.  These issues must be properly dealt with, but they can dramatically add to the costs associated with repairs as compared to other types of water damage. 


Sewage often contains an array of chemical and microbial contaminants and even dangerous pathogens.  These contaminants soak into porous building materials and can be an immediate potential threat to building occupants.  Contaminants may include mold, bacteria, viruses, parasites, protozoa and household or industrial chemicals.


“Experiencing the nightmare of having a sanitary sewer overflow in one’s home or business requires the expertise of professionals who deal with this type of property damage,” said Tom Allen from Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters, LLC.  “These situations need to be handled properly or they can pose a health risk both now and in the future.  At Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters, our insurance claims experts are experienced with helping policy holders who have these types of claims.  We represent only their interests to ensure that insurance companies provide the necessary financial resources to effectively remediate and repair damages so that a clean and healthy indoor environment is the end product for the policy holder.”
