Sewage backup in septic tank?

11/2/2021 (Permalink)

If you live outside of town and own a septic tank system, sewage backup questions are still a grey area in your policy. Many insurance companies treat the septic tank as an extension of your plumbing and as a result cover any loss. Others either deny the claim or cover a limited amount for structure cleaning only. Sewage losses do vary by company and you must take the time to read your policy or call your agent BEFORE you have a loss. This is one area you can compare insurance companies as some cover things others deny. While we cannot guarantee coverage, we can guarantee that the experts at SERVPRO of Manistee, Ludington, and Cadillac will clean up the mess and remove the offensive odors. Give us a call at 877-350-4872 to get started.
