Any case of water damage is considered an emergency, but this is especially true if the water in your home or building contains sewage. Damage from sewage water is quite common as flood waters usually mix with sewage before entering a home or building, bringing the sewage and its harmful toxins with it. Sewage can also affect your home if there is a sewage backup that causes it to come back into the building. If you think that the water on your property may contain sewage, it is best to stay away from it and have it removed by professionals.
RestorationMaster provides sewage backup cleaning in Bel Air, MD to clean up sewage backups and deal with contaminated flood water. Our technicians have the proper equipment and cleaning products to remove the sewage and disinfect the damaged areas.
Dealing with Sewage
Sewage water is a dangerous presence on your property for several reasons. Water contaminated with sewage can cause much worse damage than clean water as the affected building materials and furnishings absorb the waste materials and toxins as well as the water. This leads to extensive damage and it is common for materials like drywall to sustain permanent damage. Often, materials that absorb sewage water need to be removed and replaced.
The other major issue with sewage water is the potential health effects. The waste materials in sewage water are full of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms that can spread infection or disease. If you come into contact with the water, these health risks become even greater. That is why we advise you to avoid any water that may have sewage.
