Why should you treat sewage cleanup like the emergency it is?


Reading DIY sites online leads one to believe that if you put on some gloves and rubber boots that you can handle cleaning sewage.  Don’t be fooled.  While many home improvement projects can be tackled by knowledgeable homeowners, sewage cleaning simply isn’t one of them and there are 2 reasons why:


1.  Sewage can contain highly infectious viruses and bacterias. 

Sewage water has been found to contain harmful pathogens that can cause serious illness and in some cases death.  Nasty stuff like salmonella, Hepatitis-A, E-coli virus, and giardia are just some of the things that can be present in sewage water back-up in your home.  Some of these agents can be contracted by touching your skin or even airborne, so the sewage back-up cleaning process should be treated as an environmental hazard and every precaution necessary must be taken to eliminate exposure to these agents.


2.  Sewage damage can be hidden.

You might think that spotting damage caused by sewage is easy.  While we wish that was the case, finding water damage can be very challenging.  In fact, most damage is invisible to the human eye, and with sewage damage what you can’t see can be dangerous.  We use a variety of moisture detectors to find hidden damage so that we know what needs to be dried and treated so you’re no left with a toxic situation once we’ve packed up our gear and are out the door!


What does professional sewage cleanup service entail?


Step 1) Sewage Damage Assessment & Quote.  Before any work can be performed, a technician will examine the sewage damage and provide a mitigation plan that clearly outlines what damage has occurred and the steps that will be taken to clean, dry & disinfect the home.  You’ll have to total cost in writing before any work begins.


Step 2) Item Removal & Disinfecting.  We’ll then remove any items that have been contaminated for the raw sewage and if we believe they’re salvageable we’ll take them offsite and have them professionally cleaned and disinfected.  Anything that can’t be saved will be properly disposed of according to local laws and regulations.


Step 3) Waste Disposal.  Once the area is clear we’ll begin the process of removing sewage and safely disposing of it.  If it’s the case your sewer pipes are properly flowing, we can pump the sewage back into the sewer system.  If the pipes are backed up or for whatever reason not usable, we will contain the sewage and transport it to a certified sewage disposal area.


Step 4) Disinfecting & Structural Drying.  Once all standing sewage has been safely removed we can apply powerful disinfectants that kill off any lingering contaminants and rapidly dry out the property.  We have patented drying equipment guaranteed to bring your home back to ideal moisture levels quickly!

As you can hopefully tell, the process is fraught with danger and should always be performed by certified technicians. While you might think you can read some DIY articles and then roll up your sleeves and safely mitigate sewage damage, it would be a huge mistake. In the example linked above, the number of omissions and poor advice is almost unfathomable.  All you need is rubber gloves for protection? Somebody should notify the EPA and OSHA, because according to them anyone that is coming into to contact with raw sewage should have on a full hazardous materials suit and a full-face respirator. What if raw sewage were to splash into your eye? You’d be in trouble. Watch this quick video to learn more…

Why do I get sewage backups in my basement?


If you have a basement, more than likely any sewage is backing up into that area. This happens because your basement is the lowest point in your home and the sewage seeks the quickest exit point. Because your basement is lower than the rest of your house, that means it’s going to cause damage there before entering other areas of your home. But why do sewer lines back up in the first place? There are usually a couple of reasons:


fats-oils-grease-clogging-restaurant-sewer-line1) a clog or blockage in your sewer line – in most instances, routine maintenance and a little TLC will prevent this from happening. The most common causes of this type of sewer backup in Denver is from either people putting stuff down their toilets and sink drains that have no business going down there or tree roots growing into the sewer pipe itself. For the former, the culprits are usually oils and cooking grease. Dispose of that stuff by using a mason jar and then throwing it away once it’s full. For tree roots, your best course of action is to have your line snaked once every year or 2. It usually costs less than $100 to get done by a professional!

2) a sewer line overflow – the root of this problem lies with the city’s sewer line. Namely, it serves as a source of drainage for storm water on top of being the main conduit for sewage. When there is too much rain, the storm water along with the sewage escape and end up entering the sewage line that exits your home and is tied to the city’s line. This can send a whole lot of sewer water into your basement really fast!

If you have a water or sewer emergency that will require work to be done at the street level (meaning the cause of the backup is from a city sewer line or storm drain), you will want to contact Denver Water to report the incident!
