3 Reasons to Leave a Sewage Mess to the Experts

White toilet bowl in a bathroomThe only thing worse than water damage to your home is damage caused by sewage backup. Such a disaster is overwhelming and extremely difficult to clean up without professional help. There are both practical and safety reasons why you should leave sewage cleanup jobs to the professionals. Here are the main 3 reasons.

Health Dangers

Besides the danger of mold growing from the water damage in your home, the sewage water itself poses numerous health hazards to you and your family. Salmonella is often present in sewage and can lead to an infection causing nausea, diarrhea, and other intestinal problems. In addition to intestinal infections, such as bacillary dysentery, raw sewage can cause eye and skin infections as well. Hepatitis A is another concern since it is a very contagious virus that can harm the liver if infected. Mold growth from untreated water and sewage damage can quickly begin to cause respiratory problems as well.

24/7 Services

Since sewage backup poses so many health risks, it's vital that cleanup and restoration work begins immediately. Although you may wish you could put your life on hold to take care of the cleanup yourself, this is neither practical nor safe. A reputable cleaning and restoration company is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This ensures that the necessary procedures begin immediately without delay to prevent further contamination and water-related problems from developing.

Proper Protocol

If not cleaned up properly, raw sewage can further damage your property. If the backup was due to clogged pipes, these blockages must be cleaned out properly to prevent further backups and damage to the pipes. There is certain protective gear and disposal protocol required to ensure safety. The experts are trained in this protocol and have appropriate equipment to ensure proper cleanup and prevention so that you won't have to worry about any further health risks.
