Indoor flooding is one of the worst disasters a property owner may deal with because it can quickly cause structural damage, ruin personal belongings, and lead to mold growth. The effects of the flooding can be much worse if the water contains sewage.
Sewage consists of waste materials that not only increase the amount of damage, often ruining furnishings and building materials, but also increase the risk of health effects.
You must avoid making contact with flood water that could contain sewage and call a licensed professional that can clean up sewage water safely.
We use advanced water extraction equipment to remove the sewage water and we will thoroughly clean and decontaminate the affected areas to eliminate health risks.
Our experienced technicians are highly trained to safely deal with sewage and they have all passed an extensive background check prior to employment for your protection.
Damage Caused by Sewage
There are a couple of different ways that sewage can find its way into your home. A sewage backup may occur in which a backup in the system causes sewage to come up through a drain, or flood water may mix with sewage before entering your home.
No matter how the sewage got into your home, you need to react with caution and call our professionals to remove these dangerous materials. If you try to clean up the sewage yourself, you will be putting yourself at major risk for negative health effects.
Sewage in your home can cause the following problems:
- Water Damage: Excess water causes significant damage by getting absorbed in building materials like wood and drywall. If the water contains sewage, the waste materials will get absorbed with the water and cause severe, often permanent damage. Building materials that have absorbed sewage water need to be replaced more often than not. The best way to prevent permanent damage is to call our professionals immediately for cleanup.
- Health Risks: Sewage often contains harmful toxins including viruses, bacteria, and various microorganisms that can trigger serious health effects. Any contact with contaminated water will put you at risk, which is why we advise you to call us immediately if you have sewage in your home and avoid making contact with the water.
