CHATTANOOGA -- Jared Privett has been working in the cleaning business for 9 years.  And he says the phone at Servpro has been ringing off the hook the past week.

"It's been nonstop, we get calls all day long," he says.

And today, he's assessing damage. His travels take him from Chattanooga to Rock Spring, and back again.  All calls from the flooding.  A lot of it is leftover sewage.

"Just a lot of sewage.  There's never been this much sewage--it's been backed up into everybody's houses, backed up into businesses.  All the rain from (last) Wednesday's storm on, it's been nothing but work," Privett says.
