Sewage backups not only present unpleasant odor problems, they create a severe health hazard and cause significant property damage and if not handled properly.
A sewage backup can carry a number of pathogenic organisms & viruses:
- Hepatitis-A, Rotovirus, Norwalk Virus, etc.– Parasites
- Giardia, cryptosporidium, round worms, etc.– Bacteria
- E-coli, Samonella, tetanus
The longer sewer water remains within a building, the greater the potential for bacterial growth that may lead to serious illness. These dangers exist along with the likelihood of microbial growth from moisture trapped within a structure.
Cleanup is just a phone call away!
