Sewage overflows and back-ups can happen anytime and can be very disruptive and damaging to your home or work environment. Sewage is considered to be a bio-hazard, proper protection and sewage cleanup techniques are required to return your home or building to a usable and safe place.
Many people attempt sewage cleanup themselves, but we strongly discourage doing this sort of cleaning due to the risk of exposure, not only to germs and bacteria, but to blood-borne pathogens, sharps and other hazardous materials/chemicals.
People often discover that their sewage cleanup efforts were incomplete, and that moisture has seeped into the walls, under baseboards, or into cabinets and is now becoming a mold problem. The method for restoring a loss that has occurred due to a sewage backflow is much different than a fresh water situation. Black Water (sewage, or old gray and fresh water) restoration projects require special handling. Dry-Tech Water Damage Restoration Services follows the IICRC S 500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration.
What could cause damage and require sewage cleanup are:
Toilet Backflow (beyond trap)
Septic Tank Backflows
Sump Pump Failures
Floor Drain Backups
Flooding of Sea Water
Ground Surface Water
Sewage Pipe Break
Sink or Bathtub Overflow
Rising Water from Rivers/Streams
If allowed to go unchecked, a small problem can become a big and expensive one later. Dry-Tech Water Damage Restoration Services’ personnel are specially trained and have the proper equipment to not only clean the area, but to dry it completely to prevent ongoing damage. Dry-Tech Water Damage Restoration Services has the cleaning facilities to restore contaminated items to a like-new condition. Sewage ceanup should begin as soon as possible to reduce risk and exposure.
