Biohazard sewage cleanup should always be performed by highly-trained, certified professionals in order to ensure not only your personal safety, but the safety of the affected area as well as the inhabitants of the property. There are many life-threatening biohazards that may occur due to raw sewage exposure. Porous items that come into contact with raw sewage must only be handled properly by certified professionals and disposed of safely.
Now, you may ask yourself questions such as, “Will what’s left of my property and items be saved due to sewage damage?” Well, while certain items should undergo extensive sanitation and deep-cleaning treatments before they are deemed fit to use once more in a home or business, the fact of the matter is that most items that are contaminated will have to be carefully removed and disposed of.
Why do we resort to extreme precautions for this kind of cleanup, you may ask? Well, these extreme precautions are needed during biohazard sewage cleanup due to the fact that there are a variety of deadly pathogens, parasites and bacteria that live in raw sewage. Those who are unfortunate enough to be exposed to this sewage could contract any of the following diseases:
To avoid these deadly diseases, biohazard sewage cleanup must be completed immediately. As soon as the homeowners are made aware of any breach, a professional sewage damage specialist should be contacted. Many things can cause biohazard sewage damage, such as toilet seepage, a burst pipe, water or pipe main blockages, a blockage in sewage or pipe corrosion; and even intense flooding can cause contaminated water to enter the area.
Water losses are the most destructive to the structure and can be extremely dangerous to the inhabitant’s health, because this type of water can contain pathogenic, fungal and viral contamination. There are also many issues that require proper handling, like: bacterial control, soil removal, pumping out the all the sewage, cleaning and finally odor control. Because sewage is considered a biohazard, there are proper protection protocols and clean-up techniques that are required to return your home or building back into a safe, usable, hygienic environment.
