Unpleasant! There is no doubt in saying that sewage backup is unpleasant and not good. Sewage backup and wastewater stinks and has things which cannot be mentioned and can causes significant risks to you and your loved ones. Sewage backup needs to be cleaned up as soon as possible and not take lightly which can cause serious health issues and not to mention the terrible Odour it causes.
Raw sewage and basement sewage flooding can contain a variety of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that can cause serious health risks, illness and even severe diseases and death. The main reason of sewage backup is the ‘Black water – in industry terms’ which is severe classification of flood water. The risk of contamination from unknown chemicals such as solvents, carcinogens and pesticides are incredibly high.
The potential danger of toxic, asphyxiating and flammable gases within a confined space can also be hazardous to your business and can have disastrous consequences to the environment and local water supply. Spills from sewage pipes can spread rapidly so it is essential that any spills are dealt with quickly and effectively to minimise exposure and contain the spread.
