Sewage Leaks & Health Concerns
Whenever you’re dealing with sewage leaks or spills, it’s an issue of handling infectious waste. This means anyone performing the clean up needs to follow hazardous material protocols to protect themselves and others from disease. The longer sewage leaks exist in the building, the greater the damage and chance of spreading disesase.
Too often, sewage spills happen when no one is at home. This creates the situation where the spill can sit for hours. The potential for viruses and bacteria to spread increase with every hour the spill exists. When cleaning up a situation like this, it’s imperative to have proper saftey equipment including special breathing apparatuses.
Along with the health hazards, sewage spills bring water damage as well. Naturally, water damage creates a high potential for mold damage as well. This is why it’s a good idea to hire a sewage remediation company that handles all the potential issues.
Not properly cleaning sewage back ups or leaks can leave your family exposed to serious hazards. Call ServiceMaster By Williams whenever you have problems with sewage leaks or spills.
