Excessive water damage and indoor flooding can lead to some very serious issues in a home or building. Water gets absorbed quickly by furnishings and building materials which causes the water damage to spread, leading to possible structural issues and mold. If the water in your home contains sewage, the situation is much more urgent and dangerous. The waste materials contained in the sewage water will cause more damage quicker and also pose a serious risk to your health. When a sewage backup occurs, you must avoid contact with the water and immediately call a licensed professional for cleanup.

We can not only deal with the water and the resulting damage, but also the dangerous materials in the sewage.

Dangers of Sewage Backups
If you even suspect that there may be sewage mixed in with the water in your home, avoid contact with the water. Sewage can enter your home if there is a sewage backup in which it comes up through the drains, or if flooding from the outside enters your home already mixed with sewage. The presence of sewage on your property can lead to the following issues:
- Water Damage: Sewage water gets absorbed into porous building materials just like clean water but the dirt and waste materials in the water make the damage much worse. The affected materials risk permanent damage because of the contaminants in sewage water and there is always a risk for mold growth. We can treat the water damage caused by sewage and restore the damaged materials.
- Health Risks: The biggest threat from sewage is the threat to your health. Sewage water consists of harmful materials like viruses and bacteria that easily spread infection and disease. Staying clear of the sewage water will reduce your risk of health issues.
