Sewage Back-up Cleanup

Raw sewage is known to contain a significant amount of hazardous substances. Microbes and bacteria run rampant within city sewer lines, and when these enter your home, it can quickly create a hazardous environment.

It is quite common for property owners to attempt the cleanup themselves, however we do not recommend they do so. Sewage backups that are not properly cleaned can lead to severe issues in the future.  These issues can include the growths of black mold, structural decay or other hazardous conditions.

Hazards of a Sewage Back up- What You Need to Know

Depending upon the extent of the sewage back up, there are several actions that must be taken to ensure the safety of the building occupants.

 

Utilities

In the event of a raw sewage backup in your property, it is important to turn off the power breakers feeding the affected areas. Exposed appliances or electrical outlets could create a hazardous environment if electricity is still flowing.

Use extreme caution during this process to avoid electrocution. Action you can take requires wearing rubber boots while on the premises, avoid standing in water while turning the breaker off and using rubber gloves while making contact with the property’s breaker panel.

 

Food items

If the backup occurred in the kitchen area, all food must be properly disposed of. Bacteria and viruses such as Hepatitis A could become exposed to your food, which can cause severe reactions if ingested. Although these hazards are not airborne, it is very easy for small particles to encounter your food, kitchen utensils, medicines, and other exposed items.

Proper sanitation must occur prior to handling any contents within the affected areas. Each item must be addressed with proper care to safely save salvageable contents after a sewage back up.

 

Textiles & Clothing

Textiles and clothing must be handled with the upmost care when exposed to raw sewage. Only a professional can properly evaluate which items are salvageable and which ones must be disposed.

Per the IICRC, sewage backups are considered a category 4 loss. Contact with any porous substances requires immediate disposal. At DeShano Restoration, our technicians can sort through the mess and working with your insurance company to report unsalvageable materials and items.
