Stopping Sewage Leaks

Sewage Removal & Clean Up in Los Angeles & Beyond

Any kind of water leaking into the home can be unsettling. Whether you are coming home from a quick errand or a long vacation, finding water flooding into your home is a huge ordeal. Home flooding can be made worse when you discover that the water coming into the home is sewage.

Sewage water is often more dangerous than if water leaked from an appliance or pipe because sewage water has waste in it. This means there are bacteria and microbes in the water that can make you and your family very ill if you come into contact with the water.

We recommend that you never try to remove sewage water from your home alone. You will need to call in professionals as soon as you realize that the water coming into your home is sewage.

We provide water removal and restoration services in Los Angeles. Call us today at 833-379-3696 to schedule an appointment.

When to Call Professionals for Sewage Removal & Clean Up

There are many different times you will need to call in professionals as soon you realize there is sewage water coming into the home. Always call professionals as soon as possible when you have visible signs of water and leaking

However, sewage leaks might not always be very obvious. Sometimes there can be water building in the home without you realizing it.

You might have water building up into the walls and floors if you notice any of the following:

  • Your house always has a damp or musty smell
  • Your home recently had a pipe burst and now you notice the house feels or smells damp
  • Paint is peeling off the walls or floor
  • The floors or walls feel damp
  • You have random wet patches throughout the home and are not sure where they come from
  • Carpets and curtains seem wet for no reason
  • Wood furniture is rotting or warping
  • You notice mold growing around the home

Mold is a serious problem and usually means that there is water building up somewhere in the house. Make sure you also call in mold remediation experts to ensure all the mold is removed after the home has been dried out.

What To Do When Sewage is Leaking Into the Home

As soon as you see sewage leaking into the home, you should call us. While you wait for us to come there are also a few other things you need to do to ensure the home and your family are safe:

  • Make sure everyone gets out of the home including pets. If there are children or elderly people in the home, they should be removed first.
  • Contact the companies that supply your home with utilities and ensure the water and electricity are shut off immediately. Having the electricity on in the home while there is water coming in can be very dangerous.
  • Open all the windows of the home to get some fresh air into the house.
  • If there are any items that are dry and not affected, try to remove them immediately. This will save them from damage and possibly from having to be restored in the future.
  • If you have chlorine, you can add small amounts of water so that the bacteria are prevented from spreading as quickly.
  • Make sure you call the insurance company and let them know there has been a flood in the home. They can start walking you through the claims process.

Our Process for Cleaning Sewage

We have a special process for properly cleaning sewage that ensures the uncontaminated parts of your home stay safe. We also wear protective gear so that we do not spread sewage around the house or property.

Sewage removal on your own should never be done unless the spill is very minor. You might also not be able to clean it properly which increases the chance of germs being spread around the house.

Once we arrived at your house, here are some of the things we will do:

  • Put on our gear including gloves, boots, eyewear, and a facemask. We need to make sure no parts of our body are coming into contact with the infectious water.
  • We will then close the doors where the contaminated water is located so that it cannot spread to areas of the home that are clean. This also ensures that airborne particles are not able to blow into other parts of the house.
  • We will then begin using a pump to remove the sewage water. We also have filtration vacuums and suction devices that can remove the water from the walls and floors.
  • If there is any dirt or soil, we will remove it and put it into plastic bags. We will then remove it from the property for you.
  • All items that have been infected with sewage water will be removed so we can restore them and sanitize them. If there are any items we feel we cannot restore, we will let you know so you can begin replacing them.
  • We will pull up any wet flooring and carpet as well as baseboards. We can use our special equipment to dry the water from underneath them.
  • We will then clean all the walls, floors, and other surfaces. We use commercial-grade disinfectants to make sure there are no germs left behind.
  • We will then run dehumidifiers around the house to ensure all excess moisture is removed from the rooms and the air.
  • We will do a thorough mold inspection and call in mold remediation experts if we find evidence of mold around the home.
  • We will also inspect the plumbing and electric systems to see if they are safe to begin using again. If not, we can call in experts to fix them.

Never handle a sewage leak emergency alone. Call us immediately at 833-379-3696 and we can come to your house within a  few hours. We will make sure your home and property are cleaned and restored to the way it was before the leak. We are ready to help you in Los Angeles.
