Septic Tank Failure Cleanup

Septic tank failure can pose serious health issues for occupants. When a septic system malfunctions, it results in improper discharge and movement of untreated sewage. This can lead to the emergence of sewage on the ground surrounding the tank or drainfield as well as backup in the pipes within the home.

Our professionals follow specific steps and techniques to ensure effective remediation depending on the unique circumstances of a septic tank failure.

Toilet Overflow Cleanup

When a toilet overflows, it can lead to a messy and potentially hazardous situation. The overflowing water can damage flooring and walls leading to structural damage and potential mold growth.

Hiring a professional restoration company for toilet overflow cleanup minimizes health risks, prevents further damage and restores the property to a safe and habitable condition.

FAQs About Residential Sewage Cleanup

What are the risks of cleaning up sewage?

Sewage contains dangerous microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, and other toxins. Coming in direct contact with sewage, including areas contaminated by it, can result in serious illness and/or infection. Therefore, it’s important to hire a professional with the proper training, equipment, and experience to address the affected area safely and efficiently. 

Is it safe to stay in a house with sewage backup?

No, it’s not safe to stay in a home with a sewage backup because it can affect the health of occupants. In addition to the risk of contamination through contact, sewage backups can also pollute well water and other water sources (lakes, rivers, streams, and reservoirs) that are used for drinking. 

How long does sewage bacteria last on surfaces?

How long sewage bacteria last on surfaces depends on both the type of organism and the surface. For instance, E. coli found in water can last for more than 100 days under certain circumstances, while enterococcus (bacteria) can live on dry surfaces for over 24 hours. This is why hiring a professional to clean and sanitize your home after such an event is essential.
