As sewage is a major carrier of disease and harmful pathogens, a sewer backup or any sewage damage is a serious problem. Spillages from drains and sewage can spread fast if left unattended. Sewage leaks or spills could occur for a number of reasons. If left untreated, sewage water can cause severe health threats to human life. Water contaminated by a sewage backup or leak can be categorised as Clean, Grey or Black water based on the source of damage and level of contamination. A wide range of bacterial infections such as E. Coli, Botulism, Dysentery, Leptospirosis, Salmonellosis can result from contact or ingestion of mainly grey or black water classifications. These bacteria then induce a range of sickness including diarrhoea, flu, double vision, fever and respiratory failure.
It is important to have a sewage cleanup specialist identify the cause and rectify the problem as soon as possible, no matter what the reason. A professional sewage cleanup involves properly disinfecting the affected areas to prevent microbial development.
