Sewage Cleanup

Although uncommon, sewage spills can have serious negative consequences for your home or business.

They smell horrible, and the bacteria and other biohazards involved can pose major health risks. There are numerous causes of sewage spills, including:

  • Old or broken pipes
  • Blockages caused by foreign objects in the sewage system
  • Faulty equipment or pumps
  • Storm damage and flooding
  • Accidental damage due to construction or digging

Both the inside and the outside of a building can become contaminated with raw sewage, resulting in major problems that require a lot of cleaning up. For example, internal sewage spills can lead to waste seeping into porous substances such as furniture, carpets, and ceilings, impacting the overall habitability of your property.

Similarly, outside spills can contaminate soil, vegetable gardens, swimming pools and a range of other commonly used areas. If this occurs, you will need to use a professional biohazard cleaning service, such as the one we provide, to ensure the appropriate decontamination measures are taken.

The Diseases Associated With Sewage Spills

Raw sewage has the potential to carry extremely harmful bacteria and other microorganisms that can cause severe illness and diseases. Contact with sewage can result in you catching these diseases. Additionally, many of the pathogens in sewage are parasitic, which means that they can impact your long-term health without causing severe illness immediately.

In saying that, some also cause immediate illness with symptoms such as diarrhoea and vomiting that don’t last for very long. Some of the most common diseases associated with raw sewage include:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Leptospirosis
  • E.Coli
  • Tetanus
  • Giardia and Cryptosporidium

As noted, these can have severe long-term health effects which can impact you and your family.
