When a home or building has standing floodwater, the water might be contaminated by sewage. Sewage often mixes with floodwater prior to entering a home or building, but a sewage backup can also cause indoor flooding. Because of the waste materials found in sewage, sewage water indoors is concerning. The waste materials will lead to significant damage to your property’s building materials and furnishings, and they can cause negative health effects for you and others such as disease and infection. Knowing this, it is important to keep your distance from any water that might be contaminated by sewage and call RestorationMaster for our help.

In addition, our technicians will either repair the damaged materials or remove them. Afterwards, we clean and disinfect the entire area affected by the sewage-contaminated water, ensuring your property is safe to return to.
Damage Caused by Sewage
If a sewage backup occurs, it can result in serious issues. The sewage not only severely damages furnishings and building materials, but its toxic elements can be harmful for your health. Because of this, it’s essential that you understand its potential for harm and why immediate action is necessary:
• Water Damage: Water damage alone is a problem, but it becomes a bigger problem if the water involved contains sewage. This is because, in addition to water, the waste materials get absorbed by building materials and furnishings. If they absorb enough sewage, the affected surfaces and materials suffer potentially permanent damage. Knowing this, sewage-damaged materials are often removed and replaced.
• Health Risks: From bacteria to viruses to other toxins, sewage water contains a variety of waste materials that may lead to disease or infections. Because of this, you need to stay away from any water you may suspect is contaminated with sewage.
