With our services, if you should experience sewage backup or flooding, you can ensure that your home will be drained and cleaned thoroughly and the health of you and your family will be protected.
Causes of Sewage Backup
You don’t only have to worry about extreme flooding and sum pump leaks as causes of sewage backup. A very common type of sewage backup involved clogged pipes. You might have a clog due to toilet paper and soap scum. A crack or collapse in a pipe can also cause sewage backup. These are more commonplace issues than a flash flood, for example. In all, sewage backup can occur even in the most mundane situations, so it’s important to have a plan when these situations occur. When you call on our services, you know that you will have a quick and easy solution that is always done right.
When you experience sewage backup or flooding, you face the danger of exposure to blackwater. Blackwater is water associated with sewage because it has come in contact with fecal matter, making is extremely hazardous to human health. As a result, blackwater contains bacteria and pathogens that can cause disease and illness if ingested. The waste that is contained in blackwater cannot easily break down or decompose, making it a lasting danger even after sewage cleanup. That is why it’s important to call on our services when you have sewage water in your home. Our licensed professionals will ensure that your home will be safe to live in after this blackwater is removed.
Because of the hazardous nature of blackwater, our licensed professionals will take great care in dealing with your sewage problem. Simply removing the water from sewage backups does not remove the hazardous bacteria from your home.
