Sewage Cleanup

What is the first thing that you think of when someone mentions sewage cleanup? Probably that it’s a nasty thing to do, and that you would want to avoid it. And this is not far from the truth.

But, sometimes, sewage cleanup has to be done in order to keep your household in perfect condition, and to ensure that you won’t have bigger sewage problems in the future. Sewage cleaning is a process which you can do yourself, but it will require that you roll up your sleeves and you’ll need to have proper equipment and knowledge to do it.

Generally speaking, it’s always better to call a professional raw sewage cleanup company to do it for you, as such companies have experience with dealing with sewage waste.

In this article, we’ll talk more about sewage cleanup – what it is, how you can do it yourself, and why you should contact one of the professional sewage cleanup companies if you want the whole process to be more efficient and thorough.

What is Sewage Cleanup?

Sewage cleanup is a process that consists of cleaning sewage infrastructure in a household/some other object. The subject of such cleanup is usually debris that is left behind water, waste, sanitary products and other household grease.

One of the most common sewage related problems is sewage backup – it occurs when water doesn’t properly drain away from your home due to some damage or malfunction. In that case, everything from the sewage goes back through the pipes and comes outside in your toilet (in most cases). 

First Things to Do After Sewage Backup

Sewage backup is something you want to avoid at all costs. If it occurs, you’ll have to do a sewage cleanup, following few key steps:

  • Evacuate the premises
  • Contact sewer cleanup services near you
  • Open windows
  • Take any dry, uncontaminated items away
  • Notify your insurance company

DIY Sewage Cleanup

Although sewage cleanup is a complicated and nasty process, you can do it yourself. We recommend DIY sewage cleanup only for sewage problems that aren’t big and that target only one room or portion of your household. In other cases, always contact one of many sewage cleanup companies.

  • Wear protection gear
  • Contain the spill – close the doors between contaminated areas
  • Remove water as soon as possible
  • Throw out mud and debris
  • Bring wet furniture and carpets outside to dry, sanitize or throw away
  • Wash down walls
  • Do mold inspection
  • Discard any food and beverages that have been in contact with contaminated water
  • Have all electrical systems turned off and professionally checked

What Causes Sewage Backups?

There are many different causes of sewage backups. Some of them are:

  • Soil settlement
  • Misaligned joints
  • Root infiltration
  • Pipe collapses
  • Grease buildup
  • Items flushed down a drain

In any case, if the backup occurs, sewage cleanup is a mandatory next step if you want your household to be sparkling clean.

How Can NYC Water Removal Help?

Although you can always opt for DIY sewage cleanup, this is something that is not recommended, as the cleanup is delicate and requires proper equipment. Contacting one of professional sewage cleaning companies is always a better idea, and NYC Water Removal should be on top of your list.

We have needed experience and proper equipment to do the sewage cleanup process, and we mastered it by following important steps:

  • Specialized sewage cleanup of water and sewage
  • Removal of any items that are wet, contaminated or affected by mold
  • Cleaning and disinfecting the area
  • Post-disinfection assistance

FAQ

Can Sewage Be Cleaned?

Sewage can be cleaned in a process called sewage cleanup. You can do it yourself, but it’s recommended that you contact one of professional sewage cleaning companies such as NYC Water Removal.

How Long Does Sewage Contamination Last?

This really depends on the situation. In some cases, if the damage is not big, using proper equipment can wipe out contamination in a matter of days. In some more complicated cases, it could take several weeks.

How Do You Treat Raw Sewage on the Ground?

Raw sewage problems are difficult to treat since it is mainly water containing excrement, industrial release and debris such as sanitary towels, condoms and plastic. Always contact a professional sewage cleanup company for assessment and next steps.
