What to do when cleaning up sewage or contaminated water

4/1/2019 (Permalink)

Plumbing problems are no fun, but the water damage that can affect your property can be a much more serious problem. When you are dealing with sewage damage, immediate cleanup is crucial. A delay of just a few hours can greatly increase the severity of the damage. SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County is available 24 hours a day for sewage cleanup emergencies, large or small.

While you're waiting for help to arrive make sure that you treat all water-affected surfaces and furnishings as toxic, until properly decontaminated. Keep children and pets out of contaminated areas and wash your hands thoroughly after contact with contaminated items.

Try your best to seal off the affected area to avoid tracking contaminated material into undamaged areas. Turn off your air conditioning, forced air heat to prevent the possibility of spreading contaminated air throughout your home or business. Avoid using fans to dry the affected area as they can help spread contaminants as well.

Remember that for areas affected by sewage damage, no over-the-counter germicidal products or sprays can fully disinfect contaminated surfaces. To make sure you keep your home or business safe and free of illness-causing germs, contact SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County immediately to help restore your property.
