Sewage Water Removal

Cleaning up a sewage backup is not an easy task. In extreme circumstances, your home or office might be covered in sewage, but even a minor sewer backup can create extensive challenges. Any space that comes into contact with sewage or water backed up through sewer lines can contain harmful contaminants including bacteria and other microbes. Foul odors can also develop as a result of a sewer backup.

Types of Sewage

There are two types of sewage: treated and untreated. Each type of sewage has potential health side effects and needs to be removed immediately from your property or home.

  • Untreated Sewage: Untreated sewage or wastewater contains extremely harmful contaminants that pose a serious threat to human and animal health. Untreated sewage is any sewage that has not gone through a water treatment plant. Typically, this originates with a broken toilet pipe or backup. Floodwaters typically contain untreated sewage and should be avoided at all costs.

 

  • Treated Sewage: Treated sewage has gone through a water treatment plant and all harmful bacteria and pollutants have been eliminated. Treated sewage goes through multiple steps to remove all contaminants before it is released back into the environment. It is very rare to come into contact with sewage during the treatment process, unless a tank or pipe breaks at a treatment facility.
