Water damage and flooding are always nightmares when they occur indoors, but the situation can be more damaging and dangerous if the flooding involves sewage. There are a couple of different ways sewage can get into a home or building; it can enter mixed in with outside flood water or back up through the drains if there is a sewage backup. Either way, you must use extreme caution if there is sewage on your property because it contains harmful toxins that can spread infection or disease in those exposed. When you are faced with sewage, it is best to avoid the contamination and call a professional immediately.

We can provide complete restoration of the water damaged materials as well as thorough disinfection to eliminate the risk of negative health effects.
Problems with Sewage
Indoor flooding or seepage that contains sewage is more damaging than regular water and much more dangerous to your health. If sewage is not properly removed from your property quickly, it can lead to the following issues:
- Water Damage: Water damage occurs when porous objects and materials absorb water which causes discoloration, warping, swelling and other issues. When the water contains sewage, the contaminants within the water get absorbed by porous materials as well. The waste materials increase the amount of damage as well as the risk of mold or mildew growth. The restoration must begin immediately or the damaged materials may not be saved.
- Health Risks: The potential health risks of exposure to the sewage may be the bigger concern. Waste materials in the sewage contain bacteria and other microorganisms that can trigger a range of health problems. It is important to stay away from the sewage to avoid related health issues.
