Dangers of Sewage and Wastewater

Sewage backups are common. Essentially, they are caused by clogs in the sewage system, which push waste backwards into the home when the system gets overloaded. In such situations, the top priority is to remove the sewage/water, dry off the area, disinfect, clean, and restore the property to its pre-damage condition. This is where we can help.

But first of all – why is sewage so dangerous?

Quite a bit of reasons.

E. coli, officially known as Escherichia coli, is a type of bacteria that is commonly found in human gastrointestinal tracts. While it’s not hazardous inside the tracts, it can be dangerous outside of them, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that E. coli is one of the most commonly seen contaminants in sewage. Exposure to E. coli can cause severe symptoms, such as cramps, vomiting, severe diarrhea, and dehydration.

Another dangerous contaminant found in sewage is the hepatitis A virus, which can cause significant harm to your liver and is highly contagious.

Sewage is one of the most dangerous types of water damage that your home can experience, and it’s essential to seek professional help in handling the situation.

Nothing good. We’ve went over just a few of the conditions you can experience on this page, but there’s a far greater number of problems that can happen. Unless you’re a young, fit, and healthy individual, do not even attempt to clean up sewage or be anywhere near it. 

Here’s a useful table to answer this:

You could experience symptoms of poisoning or even shortness of breath, as sewage can emit toxic gases such as hydrogen sulfide or methane. So, if there is a sewage backup in your house, STAY AWAY.
