Water damage, on its own, is a huge concern for any residential or commercial property. The excess water and moisture are absorbed by porous building materials and furnishings and are able to spread to new areas that way. This can result in severe structural problems and even mold growth. However, the water damage issue becomes even more concerning — and dangerous — if sewage is involved. The sewage contains waste materials, meaning the water can cause more damage faster. It also presents potential problems for your health. That said, if there is a sewage backup in your home or business, you need to stay away from the water and not come into contact with it. Reach out to a licensed professional right away to get the cleaning process started.

Dangers of Sewage Backups
If you believe the excess water in your home contains sewage, then keep your distance from it. Sewage can make its way into your property by way of a sewage backup, which can come via the drains, or by way of flooding where water from the outside has mixed with sewage. It’s important to avoid contact with the sewage-contaminated water because of the following problems it presents:
- Water Damage: Just like clean water, sewage water will be absorbed by porous building materials and furnishings. However, unlike clean water, the dirt and waste materials from the sewage will worsen the damage. These contaminants also increase the potential for permanent damage and there’s a chance for mold growth. Our professionals can address this problem by removing the sewage water, restoring the damage, and cleaning the affected areas.
- Health Risks: The negative effect sewage can have on your health is its biggest threat. Sewage water contains bacteria, viruses, and other harmful materials that can easily spread disease and infection. Because of this, it’s important to avoid the water.
