Indoor flooding is always a major problem in a home because the volume of water can quickly cause considerable damage to furnishings and structural materials. If the flood water also contains sewage; the effects can be much worse. Sewage water gets absorbed into porous building materials just like all excess water, but it contains human waste and bacteria that create a bigger mess and cause serious health effects. You should avoid any contact with water that likely contains sewage and call a licensed professional for cleanup. ServiceMaster of Kendall County provides sewage cleanup services to remove sewage water from homes in Yorkville, IL and clean up the resulting damage. Our technicians will ensure that there is no sewage left behind and prevent the spread of disease with thorough cleaning and disinfection.
There are a couple of different ways that sewage can end up in your home. One way is through a sewage backup which normally occurs if there is a clog in the sewer line. This causes sewage water to back up into the home. Another common way sewage gets into your home is by mixing with natural flood water. Regardless of how it happens, water that contains sewage is dangerous because harmful substances like bacteria and other microorganisms can trigger illness and infection. You must react to indoor flooding that contains sewage quickly because delaying the restoration will increase the risk of health effects and allow the sewage water to spread further and cause structural damage in your home.
