The Importance of Proper Sewage Cleanup

sewage cleanupThere are a lot of things that can cause your sewage system to malfunction, such as flooding, earthquakes, broken pipes, and blockages. If something of this nature has caused raw sewage to appear on your property, then it is vital that you have professionals handle this situation as quickly as possible. Sewage backup situations can be very dangerous. Bacteria and microorganisms cause germs that are incredibly harmful to you, your children, and even your pets. These germs can be spread by touch and can even be sent through the air in vapors and steams. Being in close contact with this material is very dangerous, and we feel that part of our job here at LDR is to make these risks and the proper methods of cleanup and containment more widely known. The main things you should do in such an emergency is to call the professionals, treat all water as contaminated until the situation is resolved, and keep everyone away from the raw sewage.

Call in the Professionals

We have all the needed equipment and experience to safely handle these situations. You should not try to clean things up on your own. Immediately vacate the area and let us know where the problem is so that we can get the situation resolved.

Treat All Water as Contaminated

If there is a problem with the sewage near your home, then there is a very real chance that all the water in the area is contaminated. Until we can tell you otherwise, it would be good for you to use only bottled or boiled water for drinking and bathing.

Keep All People and Animals Away

The most important thing you can do after alerting us to the situation is to keep everyone clear of the area. Do not let curious people and animals wander over to the mess as this will expose them to a lot of dangerous germs. Download your free home disaster planning eBook
