Do You Know What Steps To Take When Cleaning Up Sewage Damage

Mar 1, 2008
Often times it will take place so unexpectedly, no matter how good we take care of our yards. Everyone can be plagued by sewage problems. This is positively one kind of water damage you do not ever want to deal with. It is probably the smelliest, dirtiest, most unsanitary ordeal you could ever have the unpleasantness to deal with.

Sewage can be discovered in the cleanest of yards if a sewage line suddenly burst, or comes apart at a connection from sewage back up, a tree root, or because of the condition of an old line. If you have a large yard you might not see it right away, but it will not likely be long when you smell the situation.

Sewage system repair and clean up will get somewhat expensive and the sooner it is taken care of the better. The first thing you should do is phone your insurance agent. They might send someone out or advise you what to do next. In most of these circumstances you will find it necessary to employ someone qualified to repair the issue. For the time being, keep children and pets well away from the damaged section. You should not touch any of the exposed area yourself. Sewage water is extremely toxic and contains all sorts of health threatening bacteria and germs.

If you employ someone to fix the sewer issues in your yard, get estimates from at least a few well known sewer repair companies that have good service records. Always be positive when you engage someone to do the job that both parties understand exactly what the repair and clean up will include and how much you will have to spend. Find out how long the job will take to be done. Get it in writing and never give payment in full until the task has been finished to your satisfaction. Being licensed and insured is necessary for anyone you hire.

Taking care of any damaged sewer pipes is an important part of the job, but the clean up of the very bacteria filled waste is just as essential. Make sure this area of the job is done and adheres to any local codes that could be involved concerning sewage clean up. When a sewage situation was because of the city sewage system, they should be liable for the cost.

Using a septic system cleaner that may be flushed down your commode is a good precaution for build up in your plumbing pipes and lines. These cleaning solutions are not expensive and are simple to use. They can be helpful to keep your sewer system free of clogs.
