Keep Safe From Sewage Damage
Sewage damage in your Trumbull is a serious problem — A raw sewage spill means more than the expense and inconvenience of conventional water damage. It’s an emergency that imposes serious health and safety threats. Any sort of blockage or backup occurring in the main sewer line always affects the lowest point in the house first. Professional expertise and specialized equipment will be required to pump it out and restore a safe, non-contaminated environment.
Raw sewage commonly contains pathogens including Hepatitis B virus, E. coli bacteria, as well as parasites like Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia. Direct contact with raw sewage isn’t necessary to become contaminated, just breathing the fumes may result in infection. Due to these potential health risks, sewage cleanup requires professionally trained experts. The team at Professional Cleaning Systems will work quickly and safely to contain health dangers plus prevent secondary mold growth, odor problems, and structural damage.
Stay Safe Until The Team Arrives
When a sewage damage emergency occurs, some of the first steps are similar to a water damage loss. If possible find the source of the water and stop it. Next, make sure that the power is turned off if there is standing water on the floor. But you need much more knowledge and equipment for this situation.
That wastewater is filled with toxins, bacteria, and harmful microorganisms that can make you sick upon contact. While PCS is in route, call your insurance agent to let them know that you have already hired a professional sewage damage and drying firm, Professional Restoration Systems, to take care of the sewage damage situation. Then start making hotel reservations for the night.
- Stay out of the basement.
- Keep kids and pets away, too.
