One of the worst disasters a property owner can deal with is indoor flooding. This is because the flooding can result in structural damage, and lead to mold growth and ruin personal belongings. The damage from flooding can be much worse if the water involved contains sewage.
Because sewage consists of waste materials, the amount of damage and negative health effects it can cause increases. Knowing this, it is important that you don’t come into contact with flood water contaminated by sewage. You need to call a professional right away to conduct cleanup.

To eliminate sewage water, we use advanced water extraction equipment. We then do an extensive cleaning and decontamination of affected areas so that health risks are eliminated.
We employ well-trained, experienced technicians who will safely conduct sewage cleanup. Our technicians have also all passed thorough background checks, so you can trust them to work within your home.
Damage Caused by Sewage
Sewage can make its way into your home in a few ways. Sewage backups happen when a system backup results in sewage coming up through a drain. Sewage can also get mixed with flood water prior to coming into your home.
Regardless of how the sewage got inside or where it came from, it’s still dangerous, so you need to be cautious. Call our technicians right away to conduct cleanup. You shouldn’t do any cleaning yourself, because you’ll risk suffering from negative health effects.
The following problems can be caused by sewage in your home:
- Water damage: Excess water becomes absorbed by building materials, such as drywall and wood, and causes major damage to them. Water that has sewage will cause the materials to absorb waste materials. This kind of damage is severe and often permanent. For the most part, building materials damaged by sewage water need replacement. To prevent permanent damage, immediately seek help from our professionals.
- Health risks: Often, sewage has hazardous toxins, such as bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms. These toxins can cause severe health concerns, which is why coming into contact with contaminated water is risky. As such, you should immediately call us to conduct cleanup to minimize any health risks.
