Raw Sewage Backup

5/12/2016 (Permalink)

Biohazard Raw Sewage Backup This raw sewage backup was 2 inches deep and had a milkshake consistency and very very putrid before stirring it up!!

Sewer backups can be some of the most nasty situations a residential or commercial client can encounter.  Often times the only way it is discovered is by the rancid smell that works up to the living and working areas.  This odor can make the most seasoned restoration professional sick to their stomach.  So my message here is, please think about your personal protection--the raw sewage can be extremely dangerous and filled with gases, virus', bacterial, and fungi--all of which are on the surface and airborne and can create health issues and sickness.  So a tip:  Do not just jump right in and tackle this job without proper planning, which starts with a question--should I be doing this or calling a professional?  If you choose to do it yourself, then educate yourself for the safety of yourself and others in the household or business.  Even if you go down and try to sweep, shovel, etc  a little bit, then you are at risk and that decomposing feces and other particles will be almost unbearable to an unprotected nose and mouth--you might even throw up!!  I recommend you NOT tackling it, and just call for a pro...SERVPRO!  

 SERVPRO employees have all the PPE (personal protective equipment) and the proper training and products to tackle such jobs, while minimizing harm to themselves and others.  We know how to contain the situation and neutralize it!  Call SERVPRO of South Columbus to assist!  614-863-1382.  www.SERVPROsouthcolumbus.com
