Sewage backups are unpleasant, but did you know they can also be hazardous to you, your family and your pets? Water that is contaminated with biological material is a breeding ground for bacteria and may also contain health hazards like viruses and microbes.
There are 3 different types of sewage backups. The first, which is the least harmful, is caused by leaks in a supply line or other plumbing where the water is relatively clear and contains no biological material. But even this type of backup can cause problems if it’s not fixed immediately because bacteria can grow and spread very swiftly in that water, especially if the weather is warm or the humidity is high.
The second type involves water that has some biological material in it but still has some clear water as well. This is a dangerous situation because that water can turn dangerous within a few hours and needs to be cleaned up quickly by a team trained in cleaning up biohazards.
The third type of sewage backup is when the water is filled with biological material, like when a sump pump stops working and pumps sewage directly into your home or yard. When this happens the damage needs to be cleaned up by professionals who have biohazard experience and have the equipment necessary to safely deal with biological contamination.
