As a homeowner, dealing with a sewage backup is an unpleasant task that should be taken care of professionally. Sewage backups are the result of a blockage in the pipe, which prevents wastewater from flowing away from your house or property and into the municipal sewers. These blockages cause the sewage to back up and eventually overflow, causing unsanitary conditions in your home.
Much like water damage, a sewage backup can cause considerable structural and cosmetic damage to your home, as well as destroying personal belongings. Sewage quickly finds its way into areas that you may not be able to see, such as under floors or inside walls.
Contaminated water from a sewage backup is unsanitary, and can contain bacteria, viruses, parasites, toxins, and mold, which pose a significant health risk to humans and pets. Mold is also likely to grow in an area that has been contaminated with sewage unless it has been properly cleaned up and dried out.
A sewage backup is an emergency, and needs to be dealt with immediately by a professional with specialized training in sewage clean up and removal.
