Sewage is considered “black water” and is grossly unsanitary. Black water contains harmful bacteria and fungi, causing severe discomfort or sickness. This category includes water sources from sewage, seawater, rising water from rivers or streams, ground surface water or standing water.
The remediation of sewer back up losses necessitate heavy cleaning and disinfecting of the affected materials. Workers remediating a sewer back up require proper personal protective equipment. Our trained staff are able to identify if the affected materials can be effectively disinfected or need to be removed and disposed.
