Home Health: Call A Professional for Sewage Cleanup

1/10/2017 (Permalink)

There are several types of water damage, and while all need urgent attention, there are certain kinds that are considered an emergency. Floods due to sewage backup can be considered as urgent need.


Why is water damage from sewage different?


Water damage from sewage backups is an emergency because of the waste, viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens that pose serious health threats. It contaminates anything it touches, and it can even contaminate items it never touches because of the possibility of airborne toxins. Waste of all sorts, from storm runoff to chemical waste to dead animals to fecal matter permeate crevices and fill the air with a foul stench that is impossible to remove without professional water damage restoration.


Cleaning up water damage from a sewage backup is a biohazard, and anyone entering the contaminated area should have his or her vaccinations up-to-date, especially hepatitis B.


It’s clear that water damage from sewage backups are both unsanitary and unpleasant –but there is no need for you to do the messy clean up when there are professionals that are trained and certified to do it. Learn more about the bio-hazardous water restoration services of St. Charles SERVPRO.
