How much does sewage cleanup services cost?

In most cases a sewage backup is covered under your homeowners insurance policy such that like any other claim you’ll be responsible for your deductible and the insurance company will cover the rest.  But you can probably guess that the actual cost will depend on the extent of sewage backed-up and the items that have been damaged.  It can cost as little as a few hundred dollars to extract sewage from a crawl space to as much as several thousand to fully cleanup and restore a more extensive sewer back-up situation.


Here’s the most important things you should know about sewer back-ups:

Sewer water is dangerous.  There can be deadly cocktails of bacteria, virus, and harmful parasites that fester in sewage and these agents can be transmitted to you and any else in the affected area by air, skin contact, or from accidentally being ingested.  Elderly people, young children, and those affected by serious illness are most at risk, but the reality is that the contaminants within sewer water can prove fatal for anyone.

If you’re still not convinced, we hope you’ll watch the video below. Too many times, homeowners think they can cleanup the sewer water themselves and find themselves dealing with dangerous repercussions. We hope you’ll watch the video below and reconsider if you’re thinking about tackling the problem on your own:


It isn’t safe to be inside a structure that contains a sewage spill.  If it’s the case you find yourself inside a home or office that has sewer water standing in it, it’s best that you exit the building.  Unless the affected area has been completely sealed off and there is no risk of airborne contaminants spreading throughout the rest of the structure, it’s better to be safe than sorry.  Get out, call a professional and get help!


It isn’t safe to return until a certified sewage cleanup company says so.  This is one of the more scary aspects of sewage.  Sometimes people try to tackle it themselves but simply aren’t capable of identifying all of the damaged areas and properly disinfecting & drying them.  Only a certified indoor environmental specialist can perform the required processes that ensure the building is safe and only after they’ve provided a clearance test can the building be re-occupied.

Why do sewer lines backup?


A sewer line can back up for a couple of reasons, but luckily there are some simple steps you can take as a way to lessen the odds a sewage backup happens to you:


The drain gets clogged

fats-oils-grease-clogging-restaurant-sewer-lineAnything that goes down your drains or toilets exits through a big pipe. Needless to say, that pipe is under a lot of duress. Just getting toilet paper, food remnants and water down it is hard enough, but it can be put under too much stress by putting certain things down the drain. The biggest offender? Grease! Even tree roots can grow into the pipes if they are clay. When this happens, the water can’t escape down the main line and it has to go somewhere: usually back into your basement!


A storm overflow occurs

A storm overflow happens when the city’s drainage system can’t handle the amount of water passing through it during a heavy rain event. Usually what ends up happening is some sort of debris clogs a portion of the storm drain. Because the water can’t get through the pipe fast enough, it looks for another exit. Sadly, that route is straight up your pipe and into your property! Below is a great diagram that shows you what happens:
