Why is sewage dangerous?


Sewer water contains a variety of harmful agents that can cause serious illness or even death.  These agents can be spread hand-to-mouth, through skin contact, or through the air.  Infants an toddlers, people over the age of sixty, pregnant woman or people with cancer or HIV/AIDS are the most susceptible to illness, but no one is immune to these common agents found in sewage water:

() Bacteria – giardia, round warms, cryptosporidium

() Viruses – salmonella, tetanus, E-coli

() Parasites – rotovirus, hepatitis-A, Norwalk virus

() Toxic Fungi


Can’t I just clean up the sewage myself?


It’s your home, you’re free to do as you please.  But we can not stress enough how much of a health hazard you’re dealing with.  If it’s the case the sewage is confined to a very small area, and has only been present for a short period of time, it may be the case you can tackle the sewer cleanup process yourself (assuming you take all of the necessary precautions to protect yourself from contact and airborne agents).  However, if there is more extensive damage that has been done that has affected a portion of your property and the items within your property, we can not stress how important it is to contact a professional sewage backup cleaner immediately.

If you’re in a situation where you’ve discovered sewage in your basement and you’re considering taking on the cleanup and drying process on your own, we hope you’ll watch the video below detailing not only the dangers involved, but also the challenges we face as professionals fully equipped to deal with these situations. It’s just not something an un-trained person should even think of doing!


Can my possessions be salvaged?


It depends on the extent of damage they’ve been subject to as well as the material they’re made of.  In some cases, non-porous items can be salvaged assuming the sewage cleanup process is implemented quickly.  But in most cases, with porous items such as carpet, furniture, mattresses, clothing, etc. these items will need to be safely disposed of and replaced.

Crews are standing by to help you!

Probably the most common scenario we see stems from a blockage in the main sewer line of the house. Any number of things can cause this to happen, but the most common causes are tree roots and homeowners putting the wrong things down their drains and toilets (cooking oils & fibrous materials being the most egregious.

Did your sewer backup occur during heavy rains? Chances are, you’re a victim of a storm water overflow. This happens because some areas have combined sewer lines that run both storm water and sewage water through the same pipes. Too much of both in the same pipe and the water must go somewhere. Unfortunately, that somewhere is up your pipes and into your basement!
