Sewage Damage Restoration
What could be worse than regular water damage? Water damage that is caused by sewage back-flow or leakage in your home. If you have sewage damage, you could be facing a serious health threat for you and your family. This can be especially hazardous for residents who are elderly, very young, or immuno-compromised. The longer that sewage damage remains untreated, the worse the problems become and the more likely that harmful bacterias and microbes will develop.
Some of the health problems* that can arise from sewage flooding:
There are some common myths about sewage that every homeowner and business owner needs to know...
Myth: Sewage that comes from oceans, lakes, or rivers is clean.
Truth: Sewage in this form may be diluted, but it contains the same microorganisms that all other sewage contains. It is damaging to health and can cause serious odors.
Myth: You can salvage sewage-saturated carpets.
Truth: When sewage infiltrates a porous material, you need to be able to wash that material in hot water or dispose of it. Otherwise, it will be a constant health threat.
Myth: Partial sewage flooding means the rest of the building is safe.
Truth: The rest of the building is safe only if the sewage-affected areas can be properly sealed off.
