Getting water in your home or building is always a hassle that can result in plenty of damage, especially if it is standing water. When the water contains sewage, the situation is much more serious because the damage will be worse and there is a high risk of negative health effects. Porous building materials and furnishings that absorb the water will also absorb the waste materials contained within the sewage which can result in extensive, even permanent damage. It is very important to stay away from water that contains sewage to protect your health and contact a licensed professional immediately to remove the sewage safely.

We have the right materials to remove the water and moisture effectively as well as clean and sanitize affected areas to help prevent negative health effects.

Problems with Sewage
There are several ways sewage can end up in your home or building. Natural flood waters can mix with sewage before entering the building, and a backup could occur and cause sewage to come up through a drain. If there is a chance that the water on your property contains sewage, advise everyone to stay away from it. Sewage can cause the following problems in homes and buildings:
- Water Damage: The dirt, debris, and other waste materials in sewage get absorbed by porous building materials and furnishings along with the water. When sewage water gets absorbed, the affected materials have a high risk of permanent damage and mold growth. Our technicians can effectively remove the sewage water and we will restore affected materials that can be salvaged.
- Health Risks: The presence of sewage is a major health risk because sewage contains bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms that can cause disease or infection. Avoiding contact with the water and calling a professional to remove it right away will greatly reduce the risk of negative health effects.
