Cleaning Up Sewage Backups

Sewer backup cleanups are very tough projects. They are challenging, risky, and unpleasant. We highly recommend contacting professional cleaners to take care of sewage backups. The only situation in which you should tackle the project yourself is when the spill is minor and confirmed to a smaller area, like a part of your kitchen or the bathroom. Also, remember that acting fast is crucial. So, if over one day passed since the sewage backup happened, you should always contact water damage and cleanup restoration professionals.

Why Contact Green Restoration Experts for Sewage Cleanup?

Sewage cleanup can be messy and complicated, so we have to recommend that you always seriously consider contacting Green Restoration experts. The main reasons why you should do this are:

Our certified sewage cleanup professionals always wear the appropriate personal protective gear that is needed for the job. This includes facemasks, protective eyewear, rubber boots, and rubber gloves. Most homeowners do not have these at home, so they expose themselves to contaminated water. Remember that sewage spills include contaminants capable of causing some serious infections.

With sewage cleanups, speed is essential. You have to remove all sewage water as fast as you can. We use professional equipment, including powerful pumps and wet-dry vacuums. At the same time, our filtration devices are the best that can be used.
When you do not act fast, it is a guarantee the situation will become much worse. This includes potential health issues and contaminating your water supply with harmful bacteria.

Sewage cleanup involves several steps that are often overlooked by the average homeowner. For instance, it is crucial to shovel all contaminated debris, soil, and dirt into airtight plastic bags to carry out a proper disposal.
Every salvageable item from the affected area will be moved to isolated spaces. This makes it easier to sanitize them afterwards. We remove everything contaminated, including insulation, baseboards, wall paneling, flooring, and carpeting.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not enough to just mop the floor and remove the visible sewage. Green Restoration specialists fully understand the need to wash down all the surfaces in the area that was affected with appropriate eco-friendly bactericidal disinfectants. We perform deep cleaning with safe substances that are much stronger than regular household detergent. At the same time, we are cautious with the often overlooked surfaces, like walls and carpets.

Removing sewage water and drying the affected area is not enough. This is why we also disinfect and sanitize everything using the safest products, those that are completely safe for humans and the planet.

After any water damage, your main focus must be safety. You should ask yourself if it is safe to stay in your house. Look out for electrical hazards and wet materials in the house that can cause slipping.

Once you’ve decided on whether it is safe in the house, you can move on with the dos and don’ts of water damage.

What To Do After A Flooding

  • Remove any excess water using a mop

  • Wipe the water from wooden furniture after removing table top items and lamps

  • Remove any wet cushions or upholstery

  • Turn the air conditioner on so that it gets completely dry

  • Move any art objects you have to a dry and safe place

  • Gather any loose items present on the floor

  • If you have coloured rugs, then remove them from the wet carpets

What To Not Do After A Flooding

  • Don’t leave any wet fabric in place

  • Do not leave magazines and books or other items on the floor

  • Do not use your household vacuum to remove the water

  • Avoid using household appliances or the television

  • Do not turn the ceiling fixture when it is wet, and do not go in the room where the ceiling is saggy

Water mitigation can come from many different sources and events, but there is something common with them all. The first thing is that water damage is one of the main reasons many house owners claim insurance every year. It is also one of the reasons why the insurance rate keeps on rising.

The second thing in common is that, if ignored, it can lead to hazards, so handling it right away is very important. Water damage restoration and mitigation services also include:

  • Water and fire mitigation

  • Water cleanup

  • Floor water mitigation

  • Water damage repairing

  • Floor restoration and water remediation

The amount of damage that occurred in your house determines the time it will take for the restoration to take place. Usually, a normal-sized room takes 72 hours for drying. Once it gets dry, it can take a week for mildew and mold removal, and then comes construction, which takes another couple of weeks.

The entire process can take anywhere from two weeks to a month, depending on the damage caused.
