Doing so, will reduce or eliminate the unpleasant smells. Affected non-porous contents, such as, plastic bins, glass, or metal are disinfected (wet wipe and cleaned) and moved to an unaffected area.
During this step raw sewage or waste is removed using extraction equipment from affected areas.
Once the waste is removed, it is time for a detailed cleaning. During this step flooring that came in contact or was contaminated with sewage, will have to be removed.
With sewage we are dealing with biohazard materials; therefore, it is necessary to apply disinfectant again.

All of your affected contents and porous building materials, such as, drywall, fabrics, carpet, untreated wood, will be removed and disposed.

Hire a licensed plumber to assess the cause of the damage. In some cases, a plumber can make a repair to stop the broken drain line from draining water into the basement but for damaged sewer, toilet, and sink drains lines that have gone leaking into the basement without notice will make it unsanitary for a plumber to gain access to the damaged line because of the sewage under the home for so long.
There could be a number of reasons for this but if the sewage was never addressed by a professional to begin with it could make the removal of the odor more difficult. Always consult with a professional to guide you in the best direction, our services aren’t always needed but our knowledge is here to help.
