I haven't been on the forum much for the last 3 days. We've have a septic tank that blocked up on the input side and backed up into the house. The entire downstairs part of our house (1150 Sq Ft) was flooded with just over an inch of drain water and sewage. So it really is a crappy situation.

We called in ServPro to help clean up. So far all of the carpet and the flooring is a loss. All of the drywall will be cut back 2 feet up from the floor. Most of the panelling is also a loss as the water wicked up abut 6 inches up the wall. Many of the cabinets, desks that are not hardwood are also a loss. Anything sitting on the floor that is porous is a loss. The kitchen cabinets are a loss. All of the appliances can be decontaminated.

We'll be finishing up the cleanup by Friday and the insurance adjuster will show up then. He won't come out till the place has been decontaminated!!

After the concrete has been decontaminated and scrubbed they will put in the dehumidifiers and air scrubbers. It will be at least Monday or Tuesday before any restoration can start.

I have a mound of black bags out in my front yard waiting for the dump truck to show up Friday.

What a crappy way to start the new year!!

Ken you have a way with words!!

The stink has been cleaned up, now all we smell is the disinfectant/decon chemicals/enzymes.

I fixed the "Flow of Life" the first day when I found the problem. I have a clean out at the entrance to the septic tank. Once I opened that up and remove the blockage everything started pouring into the tank!!.

One good thing is that when this is all over and done with we will have a spotless downstairs to the house complete with new carpets, flooring, cabinets, paint etc.

Oh how times have changed. When I was a teen we had basically the same thing happen to my parents house. We got out mops, bleach and went to cleaning. Was a messy job but when we would complain Dad would simply say "The stinky stuff was yours."

Life is a collection of stories we old people tell and hope a few will listen and carry them into the future.

There is a story to everything we have, everyone we have met and everything we have done or we will do or dream about doing.

We sometimes ride to forget, but hopefully we never forget to ride.

I just can't do it. I've been sitting here trying to think of a way to comment without a pun and I just can't do it. This is just such a fertile topic.
