Sewage flooding is a serious problem in any home and it is extremely important to get rid of the sewage as soon as possible. Sewage not only gives foul smell but it also has a lot of contaminants including microbes that can cause chronic diseases such as hepatitis. In addition, it may also have disease causing bacteria such as Salmonella.
It is important to keep in mind that removing sewage from your home not only involves removing the physical matter but also doing a chemical treatment to kill the harmful bacteria and other contaminants that can’t be seen with naked eye. Our technicians wear protective gear to make sure that they do not come in contact with the sewage. The protective equipment usually includes mask, gloves, boots, jumpsuit and head covering among other things.
Everything that has come in contact with the sewage will either be thrown away or thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated to lessen health hazards. There will obviously be items that can’t be thrown away but you need to understand that these things must be properly cleaned to remain in your home.
