Sewage spills caused by toilet overflows, backed-up septic tanks, or sewer system backups create a hazardous environment for your family. Acting fast in these situations helps protect your family and your home. When a sewage backup happens, you need to move quickly. Sewage is a natural delivery method for disease and infection. Evacuate young children, elderly, people with asthma and weak immune systems first.
Sewage cleanup requires handling infectious waste. You must take the proper precautions to protect yourself and your family from disease. The longer the sewage is in a building, the greater the chances of it spreading disease. Protect other areas from the overflow to avoid further water damage. Water damage from a sewage spill can lead to mold growth. Mold creates more issues for your family’s health.
Sometimes overflows happen when no one is home. If the overflow has been sitting for an unknown number of hours, consider hiring the specialist at King's Remediation. Bacteria and viruses have spread at this point, making safety gear and breathing apparatuses a must. If a sewage spill hasn’t been properly decontaminated, your family could still get sick.
