Most of our clients who have experienced sewage damage have reported that their main concerned was the continuous unpleasant odors in their properties. Unfortunately, many people fail to understand that sewage carries biological hazards or invisible threats, such as, fungi, bacteria, viruses, and other harmful agents, that may cause adverse reactions or illness. For this reason, sewage cleanup is an emergency service that needs to be addressed as soon as possible in order to avoid any health concerns or additional damage (mold) to your home or business. Since sewage is considered a Category 3 Water Damage, a highly trained professional should be hired to conduct the remediation phase.
As a Certified Firm, First to Respond Restoration, follows the IICRC guidelines for professional sewage cleanup called the Standard for Water Damage Restoration (S500). This includes the cleanup process and the disposal of the sewage water after each job. Why is this important? It is important that the company you hire helps you cleanup your property correctly and avoids cross contamination by using completely disinfecting equipment on each job.

Our certified technicians will apply disinfectant, using the proper personal protective equipment (PPE), and treat all affected material to contain and reduce the number of microorganisms. 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.
Once all the detailed cleaning and disinfecting is complete, the drying procedure begins. All of your affected contents and porous building materials, such as, drywall, fabrics, carpet, untreated wood, will be removed and disposed. We use a range of advanced drying and deodorization equipment to eliminate odor from your property, including: Dehumidifiers, Air Scrubbers, Thermal Fog, Ozone, and Hydroxly Generators.
