However, there’s nothing to worry about. If you’re facing sewage back up, Green Restoration can help. We ensure timely and quick cleanup services and promise to salvage the property as much as possible.
Dangers Of Sewage Water
The backup of sewage usually occurs when toilets, bathtubs, and sinks get clogged. That’s why the water is contaminated with pathogens, microbes, bacteria, viruses, food waste, grease, and non-biodegradable items.
The damage caused by sewage water is Category III damage, which includes serious health hazards. The harmful substances carried by sewage water spread respiratory and viral diseases. When you come in contact with this dirty water, it can cause you to suffer from severe skin infections as well. So, always try to stay away from the mess and hire our emergency services to clean it.
If not addressed immediately, sewage dirt can also lead to microbial growth. Mold and mildew are likely to thrive quickly in damp and dirty places, such as walls, carpets, wooden furniture, and kitchen cabinets. Also, the place stinks unbearably. However, once you choose us for sewage backup, you can leave all your worries on us.
How to deal with sewage back up
When your sewage lines overflow, you have to act fast and responsibly. The first step should be to call us for help with sewage back up.
Consider shifting your family to some safe place for a while. Next, turn off the water and gas supply valves to keep the utility connections intact. We also recommend you switch off the power lines so that the wiring remains unaffected.
Wear protective boots and facemasks when dealing with sewage backup and try to remove unaffected items from the contaminated area. Improve airflow of the area by opening the windows. If you want to ensure protection from bacterial diseases, you can do so by adding some chlorine bleach to the sewage mess.
Also, contact your insurance provider and inform them of the loss. Take some photographs of the situation and save them as proof of the incident.
Why You Should Call Our Professionals
Professional cleanup is always more cost-effective and efficient than the cleanup you do with regular tools. We have commercial-grade vacuums and wet-dry vacuums to remove standing water from the floor and hard-to-reach areas. Our dehumidification process makes the property completely dry. With the help of EPA-registered products, we ensure the utmost cleanup of debris, contaminants, and harmful pathogens.
Also, consider contacting us if more than 24 hours have passed since the backup occurred. As the pathogens get stronger and more harmful with time, advanced techniques and effective chemicals will be needed to kill them.
When a sewage backup occurs because of a clogged septic tank, the spill is huge and creates more mess. Give us a call. Our experts will deal with the failed septic tank and its aftermath professionally, so you have nothing to worry about.
