How Restoration Professionals Deal with Sewage Extraction

Finding sewage leaks in your home can lead you into a great panic. It’s similar to having a pipe burst or a water leak but it should be taken more seriously because sewage water can have bacteria in it that can make you and your family ill.

Sewage leaks often happen because of main sewer line backups, toilet overflow, or sewage backup from your tank. Not only is it gross, but it’s also dangerous which is why we recommend you call in professionals right away if you have a sewage leak.

When you first find water and sewage leaking into your home, you might be tempted to go inside and try to save all the items you can. Try to resist the urge to come into contact with the water as it poses serious health risks. Instead, call LimeGreen to help you.

We will get to you as soon as possible after disaster strikes. Contact us at 833-379-3696 for help with the drying process today.

Step One: Contact LimeGreen Water Damage & Restoration

We know that seeing sewage in your beloved home can put you in complete shock. Try not to jump into the situation on your own though as this can only make it worse. Give us a call and when we get to the home, we can walk you through and check out the damage together.

If the sewage leak is bad though, it might be better for you not to come into the home unless you have the necessary protective gear to keep your body safe.

When you give us a call, we will ask a few simple questions to assess the damage. We will then come to the home to see the damage in person which brings us to the next step.

Step Two: Inspection

The first call to us is the most important step of the restoration process so we are always happy to hear from you. Once we get the initial call, we will then set up a time to come to your house. For emergency and serious sewage leaks, we can even be at the home in 15 minutes or less depending on where you are located.

We will do a full inspection of the house and determine what caused the sewage leak and how serious it is. There are many different levels of sewage leaks and we will need to determine which level yours is.

A sewage backup is almost always category 3 or back. This means it has thousands of different bacteria in it including hepatitis, rotavirus, salmonella, E.coli, parasites, and many different kinds of fungi.

Even though it’s called black water, this doesn’t mean the water is black. In fact, sometimes it can be clear and not even have a smell.

A toilet overflow is not always category three as it depends if the overflow is only urine or not. This is why you can never be too safe with sewage backup and you need to leave it to the professionals.

Step Three: Locate the Source

During the inspection, we will find the source of the backup whether it be the toilet, the sewage main line, or something else.

Once we find the source, we will isolate the area to mitigate damage and keep the sewage from going into other parts of the home. We will then use special HEPA filters to ensure that the microorganisms are being filtered out and not contaminating the air.

Step Four: Remove and Treat Materials

All building materials that have come into contact with sewage need to be removed and treated. If they cannot be treated, they need to be removed and replaced.

The same goes for all your furniture and personal items. We will be able to tell after an inspection if the materials can be treated or if they need to be replaced.

Step Five: Disinfection

All parts of the home that have come into contact with sewage need to be thoroughly disinfected. We use commercial-grade disinfectants to ensure that all parts of the home no longer have any germs or bacteria on them.

Step 6: Testing

Before we leave the home, we will test the walls and all the belongings to make sure they are free of bacteria, mold, and water. We have to ensure that these things are not around because they can be dangerous for the health and safety of your family.

Since we have extracted all the water from the home, we can be sure that you won’t have any problems with the drywall, hardwood flooring, or water damage in any other area of the home.

We also know that mold can become a huge problem when there is sewage in the home. Mold can begin growing in as little as 24 hours which is why water extraction and water mediation are very important. Don’t worry, our experts are always ready to handle any issues that might arise including mold.

Before leaving, we also ensure that no lingering odors are in the home. We can neutralize the odors by using ozone generators which release an environmentally friendly gas into the air and take out all the odors.

The Benefits of Letting Us Handle Your Sewage Extraction

We know how serious sewage leaks and build-ups in the home can be. When you call us to help with the extraction, we can be there the same day to inspect the damage and determine a plan of action to ensure you and your family are safe from any sewage leaking into the home.

Before finishing, we always do a mold inspection and ensure that everything has been disinfected and sanitized so that you and your family can be safe.

We know how shocking and serious a sewage leak can be which is why we are always trying our best to ensure you have no lasting damage.
