How Sewage Cleanup works
We guarantee your sewage clean ups will be done right.
Our IICRC-certified technicians have been specially trained to extract and remove sewage, mud and sewage water. We will remove and properly dispose of porous materials such as furniture, carpets, bedding and any other items which have absorbed the sewer backup water.
After the sewage cleanup is gone, air movers are placed in to blow and move moist air. This is done so that our commercial grade dehumidifiers can absorb up the moist air dry out your home, business or commercial building while preventing mildew and mold growth.
In case the items are non-porous, like tiles and hardwood floors, we can clean them as long that sewage water didn’t get under the floor. Our technicians will use eco-friendly antimicrobial agents and biocides to totally clean and sanitize the area affected. IICRC-certified clean-up procedures could also include using disinfectants which are IICRC approved to assure that the impacted areas are once again clean and safe. Our sewage cleanup and remediation services include:
- Cleanup the Sewage Backup
- Complete Structural Drying
- Deodorization and disinfect
- Debris Removal
Causes of sewage backup problems
Sewage can backup to your property in several ways. A broken sewer main line, clogged drain, a flood and even an overflowing toilet can all lead to a smelly, filthy bio-hazardous mess. Also, sewage backup may cause dangerous fungus growth, which can be a tremendous health risk by itself.
The most typical causes of sewage problems include:
Solid Flushes – The most common cause of sewer backup is a blockage caused by things like dirt, hair, bones, kitty litter or grease build-up – or by the flushing of solid-rock items which are too large in size for the pipes to handle like sanitary napkins, Paper towels and disposable diapers.
Structural Issues –This will include problems with sewer service lines like holes, cracks, pipe collapses, sags along the line, out of alignment pipe and offset or open joints.
Tree Root Penetration – Tree roots can enter the service pipe at joints and travel a long way, plugging the waste-water flow as it goes. These roots may also cause structural problems as they crack pipes once they grow.
Clogged of Sanitary Sewers – A blockage can take place in a municipality sanitary main and if this blockage isn’t discovered in time then sewage from the main-line can back up through the floor drains into your businesses or homes.
Flooding of Sanitary Sewers – During heavy rains sewer lines quite often fill up with rain water and mud faster than they drain, which often cause sewage backup as the water flows back through floor drainpipes causing overflows.
Sewage backup prevention tips
Sewage backups are among the most annoying things that take place in your home or business. The good news can be many times sewage issues are possible to avoid. Here’s how to prevent future sewage backup:
- Never put grease down garbage disposals, drain pipes or toilet.
- Never flush disposable paper items like sanitary napkins or paper towels down the toilet.
- Avoid planting trees that may spread roots that invade and clog up your system.
- If the lateral line has a jointed pipe system, consider whether the roots of trees could infiltrate the pipes.
- Replace your sewer line with new plastic pipe to avoid tree roots from entering the line.
- Do not connect any drains or sump pump in to the sewer line.
- Locate and keep easily reach the sewer cleanout in your front yard.
- Modify the plumbing line so that water is pumped to an upper level drain, eliminating the drains in the lower level.
- Complete occasional cleaning to avoid grease, debris as well as roots in your service laterals.
- Install a backflow prevention valve, which allows sewage to circulate out of your sanitary lines, but it will not back into the lines. These helps to protect against not just individually caused instances, but in addition those that come from municipality line issues, as well.
