Water damage is bad enough if it comes from rain or a burst pipe, but it is much worse if it is due to a sewage backup. Sewage backups occur if there is a problem with the sewage system that causes the waste to come back into your home. You may also end up with sewage if flood water from the outside already mixed with sewage enters your home. Sewage is a major hazard on your property because it can do more damage quicker than clean water, and it contains waste materials and contaminants that can trigger illness or infections. If you believe that there is any sewage in the flood water in your home, you must stay away from it and call a professional to clean it up.

Dangers of Sewage
Sewage water is the most dangerous type of water that can flood your home or building. The water can cause serious damage to the surrounding objects and building materials, and the harmful toxins in sewage can lead to severe health effects:
- Water Damage: The water damage caused by sewage is often worse than clean water because the waste materials within the sewage make it more destructive. Materials that absorb the water also absorb the contaminants with it and the waste materials increase the risk of mold. Sewage water must be removed immediately to give the affected materials a chance to be saved.
- Health Risks: Sewage is a major health risk because it contains waste materials, bacteria, and other harmful toxins. You must avoid any contact with the sewage water to prevent health issues.
