There are few things worse for a homeowner than a situation that requires sewage cleanup. There are many great things about owning your own property but anything related to sewage issues is not one of them. In fact, it might be the worst thing related to buying a home.

The truth is that sewage cleanup services are things that no one desires to think about. It’s uncomfortable, it’s messy, it’s downright gross. However, it’s crucial to act quickly if a calamity occurs and you discover a sewage backup in your home. The reasons for this are plenty. The potential issues extend far beyond a mess and an unpleasant odor. Because viruses, germs, and other microorganisms that might cause significant sickness may be present in sewer backup situations, they should be handled as the disasters they are. Just turning a blind eye and wishing that a sewage backup problem will resolve itself is not only foolish, it’s downright dangerous. The damage you can do to your home and your family members are numerous and truly frightening.

You might be able to recover some of your possessions, minimize the sewage damage, or even solve the issue on your own, based on the extent of the issue. But you shouldn’t attempt sewage cleanup unless the spill is minor and manageable because it is a challenging and truly dangerous task.

Types Of Sewer Backup Water

Did you know that there are actually several different types of sewage backup problems? That’s right, there are many ways that can lead to such a disaster for your home. It all comes down to three categories that summarize all sewer backup water.

Firstly, there is clean water, which is water coming from a clean source such as a supply line or maybe tap water. When clean water is flooding into your home, this is a situation that can be most easily resolved.Yes, it can lead to the damage of your home and furniture, but taking care of clean water is obviously far easier than taking care of other types of sewer backup water.

Things get a bit more complicated with grey water. This is water that is contaminated with some sort of bacteria. This can come from multiple sources, such as a dishwasher with a faulty line or a toilet that overflows. Gray water can be dangerous and unpleasant when it comes to how it looks and, of course, how it smells. When this sort of pervasive water finds its way into your home, Restoration 1 needs to be called as soon as possible.

Finally, there’s black water – which is easily the most dangerous typeof sewer backup water. It is contaminated with raw sewage, chemicals, and microorganisms. As you can imagine, this occurs when a sewer or septic tank backs up and the water invades your home. It is incredibly dangerous to the health of those nearby and it is also very damaging to your home too.

What can all of these different types of sewer backup water lead to? A number of very serious health issues such as salmonella, hepatitis, and respiratory diseases too. This is reason enough for you to get Restoration 1 on the phone immediately when you even suspect that you need sewage cleanup services. But of course, the problems from this are more far-reaching than that. The home that you live in can become unviable and utterly ruined by sewer backup problems.
