Causes of sewage backups

Flooding caused by sudden rainstorms and river floods can result in sewage systems becoming overwhelmed and backing up into residential and commercial properties causing a sewage overflow. If this happens you should look to hire a sewage cleaning service.

Leaking or cracked pipes can also be the source of a raw sewage leak in your property. Another cause may be a bit of a surprise. Trees. Yes, tree roots will actually seek out water and will be drawn to the water in your waste pipes. The roots will damage the pipes over time and inevitably cause breakages or cracks. Subsequently allowing sewage to escape. Whatever the cause of the spill/leak or backup. Hiring a sewage cleaning service as soon as you notice it is important to avoid potential effects on your health. Our expert technicians will perform an investigation in order to attempt to detect the source of the raw sewage leak.

Sewage contains a number of harmful substances which can cause severe damage to both buildings and their inhabitants. Affecting the ability of businesses to trade and even rendering properties uninhabitable if left untreated. If sewage overflow of any severity affects your property, it must be cleared quickly by properly-equipped, certified professional sewage cleaners.

Ideal Response sewage cleaning

Our expert technicians will arrive on site and immediately assess the situation to determine the best course of action. We understand that no two people or properties are the same, because of this we tailor our service to best suit your needs.

The sewage cleaning service we provide utilises our industry leading technology to safely and effectively get the job done. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Testing will be conducted before and after the sewage cleaning service is complete. This is done to accurately monitor the bacteria count of the area.

Upon arrival, our technicians will be in full PPE (personal protective equipment) to ensure their safety throughout the sewage cleaning process. Depending on the severity, either sewage pumps or wet vacs will be used to remove the waste. Following this, our technicians will use a combination of cleaning chemicals and industry leading technology to completely decontaminate and sanitise the area.

If required we will also perform an uplift and disposal of all contaminated floor coverings. As licensed upper-tier waste carriers we are able to safely handle and dispose of all forms of waste in accordance to government legislation.

The 3 types of water

There are three types of water, white, grey and black. White water is the water that enters into your home or business. This white water is what you will find coming out of your taps, showers, dishwashers and toilets. Grey and black water on the other hand are what leaves your premises. Essentially they are the two forms of waste water. Black water is what most people commonly refer to as raw sewage.

Grey Water

However, there is a stark difference between the grey water and black water. Grey water is the waste that most commonly comes from your kitchen appliances (dishwashers, washing machines, etc.) as well as from taps and showers. As you can probably guess, this waste water gets its name from the colour. Waste from these water sources has a cloudy grey-ish colour to it. The reason for the colour is the contents of the water. Most commonly grey water is made up of soap, food waste, oil and human skin. Grey water is generally not a risk to the health of people, pets or plants. It is usually non-toxic and disease free but bare in mind it is still waste water, meaning it is not sanitary. If you have a grey water leak or spill you should still seek out sewage waste cleaners to have the issue dealt with quickly. If left for too long grey water can turn black.

Black Water

This form of waste on the other hand is to be avoided at all costs. Black water is any water that has come into contact with faecal matter. As mentioned before, this is the waste product that most people refer to as sewage. Any sewage leak, spill or backup should be handled with extreme care. The safest and best course of action is to hire a professional sewage cleaning company to deal with the matter. Black water is highly toxic and is filled with harmful bacteria, viruses and disease causing pathogens. Black water (sewage) exposure should be avoided at all costs. If you suffer a raw sewage spill or flood and are in need of black water cleanup urgently contact one of our experts today.

Dangers of sewage

Raw sewage carriers with it many dangers. Sewage is full of harmful bacteria, viruses and disease causing pathogens. This means that coming into contact with it poses very real risks to your health. The most common symptoms that come with sewage exposure are nausea, diarrhoea and vomiting. These symptoms will usually go in a matter of days or weeks and pose no other risks to your health. Avoiding the spill and quickly hiring a sewage waste cleaning service will help mitigate the risks and chance of health issues.

Long-term health risks caused by sewage exposure

Sewage can also cause long term effects on your health. Especially if you are exposed for a long time. Our rapid response service can ensure that any sewage spills is cleared as quickly as possible. Reducing the chances of adverse effects on your health. The long term effects can range from chronic headaches to decreased motor function. This emphasises how important it is to hire a sewage cleaning professional. Sooner rather than later.

Dealing with large scale sewage spills

Large scale sewage spills will require more personnel and time to clear than an average spill or backup. Large scale spills will often cover a much larger area. Creating large pools of raw sewage or depending on the area of the spill may form into very deep pools. These kinds of sewage cleaning jobs can be more complicated to deal with and will be more urgent. All sewage overflow related emergencies should be dealt with with a matter of urgency. However, large scale spills even more so. There is a greater possibility of the raw sewage leak spreading and contaminating natural water sources. In some cases failure to prevent will result in fines or prosecution.
