Risks of Sewage Cleanup

The backup and overflow of sewers can cause severe health threats. Water is a destructive element. It has the ability to dissolve materials and promote the growth of microorganisms and mold. Worse, sewage-contaminated water is infested with millions of germs, bacteria and blood-born pathogens, many of which are hazardous or even deadly to humans and animals. ServiceMaster of Middle Georgia’s certified professionals use an extensive, step-by-step process to thoroughly clean and sanitize sewage damaged. An improper cleanup process can have long term, serious consequences:

  • Health Risks, Contamination, and Mold - Due to the nature of sewage, it is likely to contaminate porous materials with dangerous bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Even the fumes from sewage pose a risk. Mold is also more likely to grow after a sewage backup, especially if it’s not properly cleaned up.
  • Cosmetic Damage - Sewage can stain and discolor ceilings, walls, carpeting, and floors, damage furniture, and fabrics, weaken drywall and plaster and tarnish metal surfaces after just a few hours of exposure.
  • Structural Damage - Depending on the volume of sewage, it can severely weaken or permanently damage structural elements to your property. Drywall and plaster may disintegrate and crumble and wooden studs and subflooring can warp or split.
  • Damage to Appliances and Electrical Systems - Sewage will also damage to appliances, including washing machines, dryers, hot water tanks, furnaces, dishwashers, and refrigerators, as well as electrical outlets and wiring.
  • Damage to Personal Items - Sewage can contaminate or even destroy personal possessions like furniture, televisions, personal electronics, books, photographs, musical instruments, and many other items.


Sewage Back-Up Cleanup Process

ServiceMaster Middle Georgia makes use of the best industrial equipment available. When you have a sewer backup, anything that has been touched by sewage needs to be treated and cleaned properly.

We all agree that sewage backup is a disgusting problem. The thought of your property being invaded by fecal matter and other waste materials is unsettling to say the least. When a sewer backs up and the contaminated water enters your home it is essential to take action immediately. If you are experiencing a sewage problem in Middle Georgia, call ServiceMaster Middle Georgia immediately, and our experts will respond within 60 minutes.

A quick response to a sewer backup is necessary because of the potential problems that can result from the loss. Standing water can cause water damage and structural damage to your property and also provides an environment supportive to mold growth. It is also important because of the many bacteria’s and viruses that can be spread during the backup. To prevent structural damage to your home, as well as preventing potential health concerns it is important to contact ServiceMaster of Middle Georgia sewage removal immediately. Our Specialists not only remove the waste and fix the source of the problem but they will also thoroughly clean and disinfect the contaminated area. When disaster strikes are sure to call ServiceMaster of Middle Georgia as soon as possible to get your property back to its normal state.

  • Sewage and Water Extraction - After our initial assessment, we remove sewage and water from the affected areas. For larger sewage backups, we will pump out the affected area. For smaller jobs, we may use vacuums to suck up sewage and water. Depending on the specific damage, sewage and water extraction may take place after removal and disposal.
  • Dry Out - After disposing of materials that cannot be restored, we use professional-grade air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out areas and materials that can be salvaged. We closely monitor our equipment to ensure the fastest drying time possible and to prevent further damage. Dry out may take several days depending on the extent of the damage.
  • Removal and Disposal - We then inspect the damage and remove materials that cannot be restored. This may include structural materials like plaster, drywall, ceilings, carpeting, and carpet padding as well as personal items contaminated by sewage. Unfortunately, furniture and some personal items may need to be discarded as well.
  • Sanitize, Disinfect, and Deodorize - Once the area is dry, we thoroughly deodorize, sanitize, and disinfect the area to eliminate smells and prevent the growth of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and mold. In addition to structural materials like flooring, walls, and ceiling, we can also sanitize and deodorize materials that were salvageable.
  • Reconstruction - The final step to sewage cleanup and restoration is rebuilding and restoring the area to the original condition. This may include hanging new drywall, laying new carpeting, and installing new cabinets. It may be necessary to replace damaged appliances or fix structural issues with your property as well.
  • Sewage Cleanup - One of the worst things you can experience as a homeowner is a sewer backup. A sewer backup occurs when a blockage prevents wastewater from flowing through the sewer line that connects your home to the municipal sanitary sewers. The obstruction will cause your sewer lines and drain pipes to fill up until it eventually overflows. Like water damage, sewage backups can cause cosmetic and structural damage to your home or business.
