Water damage is already a problem that can cause serious issues in a home or building. However, when a property is flooded with water contaminated with sewage, the situation can lead to more extensive damage and create dangerous conditions. Sewage is more likely to cause permanent damage because affected furnishings and building materials will absorb the waste materials as well as the water. There are also harmful microorganisms and bacteria present in sewage that can spread illness or disease. It is important to keep everyone away from sewage contaminated water and call a professional right away.
At ServiceMaster by T.A. Russell, we provide sewage backup cleaning for homes and businesses in L.A. County, CA. Our technicians can remove all raw sewage and sewage contaminated water and remove or restore the damaged materials. We can also thoroughly clean and disinfect the affected areas to prevent the spread of illness or infection.
Problems Caused by Sewage
There are a couple of ways a home or building can end up with sewage on the property. Either a sewage backup can occur that causes sewage to come up through the drains, or the property can be flooded by water that is already contaminated with sewage. Either way, sewage can cause serious, often permanent damage as waste materials are absorbed in carpeting, flooring, drywall, wooden structures, furniture, and other objects. You must call a professional immediately to deal with sewage or the damage will spread and the risk of permanent damage to the affected materials and objects will increase.
The other concern with sewage is the threat to your health. Dangerous microorganisms and toxins that can spread infection and disease are likely to be found in sewage contaminated water. If you even suspect that water on your property might contain sewage, do not try to clean it up and avoid contact with the water to protect your health. Our professionals are licensed and equipped to remove sewage safely.
Professional Sewage Cleaning
When our technicians arrive, we will start by removing the sewage water as well as materials that have been permanently damaged. The affected area will then be dried and the materials that can be salvaged will be restored. We will also restore safe conditions by cleaning and disinfecting the affected areas and materials with powerful cleaners and disinfectants.
The sewage cleaning process consists of the following steps:
- Removal of all sewage and sewage contaminated water
- Removal of materials that have been permanently damaged
- Safe disposal of sewage water and damaged materials
