Water damage in Florida is unavoidable. As if water damage is not bad enough, there are added problems when sewage is involved. A sewage backup is a severe health hazard and leads to serious damage of property and valuables.
Blockage or clogging cause sewage backups. Overflow in drains is another major cause of a sewage backup. All the contaminated water that is required to go out reverses its course when a sewage backup occurs which can cause indoor flooding.
Philip White Water Restoration provides the best services to restore the damage caused by sewage backups in Oviedo, FL. Our sewage backup cleaning plan includes removing the sewage water as well as cleaning and disinfecting the affected areas.
Health Risks with Sewage Backup
Sewage water is not meant to come inside homes. We fit sewage in homes for the very reason to keep dirty water out. However, floods, heavy rains, blockage, or overflows can reverse the flow of sewage water. In heavy rains or floods, the sewage water can mix with the rainwater.
Sewage water can cause permanent damage to affected objects and materials in your home including electric equipment and indoor furnishings. This is because porous materials that absorb the water also absorb the waste materials, leading to extensive damage.
Sewage water is full of germs and waste. When indoors, these germs adhere to the affected materials, contaminating almost everything they touch. Germs and bacteria from sewage are serious health risks and can cause diseases and infection.
Sewage water has a distinct foul odor. Even when you remove the sewage water, the unpleasant smell remains. It is also a sign that the infectious germs are still in the house.
Therefore, it is vital to ask for professional help cleaning a sewage backup. It is risky to treat it yourself.
