If You Smell Sewage thats a Clue

Mar 15, 2008
Sometimes it can take place so unexpectedly, no matter how well we maintain our lawns every house owner may be surprised by sewage situations. This is absolutely one kind of water damage you do not ever want to have. It is likely to be the nastiest, most toxic ordeal you may ever have the unpleasantness to deal with.

Sewage issues happen in the best of yards. If a sewage pipe suddenly burst or comes apart at a connection, it can be caused by a tree root or because of the corrosion of an old pipe. If you have a large yard you might not see it immediately, but it probably will not be long for you to smell the problem.

Sewage system repair and clean up could get really costly and the quicker it is taken care of the better. The first thing you need to do is get in touch with your insurance company. They might send someone to see you or tell you what to do next. In the majority of these circumstances you will have to engage someone trained to repair the problem. For the time being, keep children and pets well away from the contaminated area. It is not safe to touch any of the exposed area yourself. Sewage water is very toxic and possesses all types of health threatening bacteria and germs.

If you let a company fix the sewer issues in your yard, get estimates from at least a few reputable sewer repair companies that have excellent service records. Always be positive when you hire someone that both parties know exactly what the repair and clean up entails, how much it is going to cost, and how long the job will take to be done. Get it in writing and never give payment in full until the task has been satisfactorily completed. Being licensed and insured is essential for anyone you hire.

Fixing any damaged sewer lines is an important part of the job, but the clean up of the extremely unsanitary waste is just as necessary. Be positive this part of the job is done and adheres to any local laws that may be involved concerning sewage clean up. If your sewage issue was caused by the city sewage system, they should be responsible for the cost.

Using a septic cleaner that may be flushed down the commode is a good prevention for build up in your sewer pipes. These cleaning products are not expensive and are simple to use. They should be useful to keep your sewer lines clear of clogs.
