Flooding in a home or building almost always leads to extensive damage because of how quickly the water can warp and discolor affected objects and materials. If the flooding contains sewage or is caused by a sewage backup, the situation can be even more damaging and dangerous to your health. Sewage consists of harmful waste materials that can cause illness or infections in those who are exposed.
If you suspect that standing water in your home may contain sewage, avoid all contact with the water and call a restoration specialist immediately. ServiceMaster EMT provides sewage cleaning services to help clean up sewage backups and contaminated flood water in Las Vegas and North Las Vegas, NV. Our technicians will ensure that the affected areas are dried, sanitized, and restored.
Dangers and Damage Caused by Sewage Water
When in home flooding occurs, there is almost always a risk of sewage getting mixed into the water. Water from natural floods can mix with sewage and other dangerous materials outside and bring them into your home. If your home experiences a sewage backup, sewage will come directly into your home which will create a highly dangerous and unpleasant situation.
Sewage backups occur if there is a clog in the main sewer line, causing sewage to come up into your drains.
