Sewerage Cleanup

Sewage damage can create a host of problems. The main issues arising from sewage damage are pathogens and potential bacterial issues.

Sewage is considered to be Black Water, or a Category 3 water loss. Certain pathogens or unsanitary conditions are present immediately following the release of these fluids.

All hygroscopic material and cellulose based material must be removed to prevent the proliferation of these contaminants.

Some of the material that would need to be discarded in a sewage water damage loss are as follows: clothing, carpeting, soft flooring such as vinyl, curtains, paper goods, cardboard boxes, etc.

A solid inventory of damaged goods is always recommended to make sure that all damaged material is documented due to the concern of replacement.
