Sewage Water Damage in Your Yard Is Messy

Jul 19, 2008
Sewage water damage is definitely one kind of water damage that no one ever wants to face. It is one of the nastiest, smelliest, most unhealthy messes that you will ever have the unpleasantness to deal with. This gruesome mess can happen suddenly without any prior warning.

All of us could be susceptible to sewage water damage no matter how well we maintain our yards. Sewage can emerge in the cleanest of yards if there is a sudden sewer pipe that bursts or comes apart at a juncture from sewage back up. Sewage water backup can also be caused by a tree root clogging the pipe, or from the corrosion of an old pipe.

If you have a large yard you might not notice the sewage water backup visually right away. You can be assured that it definitely will not take long for you to smell the problem.

Sewage repair and clean up can get very expensive, very fast and the sooner it is dealt with the sooner you can breathe easier again. The first thing you should do if you find this nightmare in your yard is to contact your home owner's insurance company. They will probably send someone out to take a look and advise you as to what to do next. In most cases you will have to hire someone professional to fix the problem. In the meantime, keep children and pets away from the contaminated area. Do not touch any of the contaminated area yourself. Sewage water is extremely hazardous and contains all sorts of health threatening germs and bacteria.

When you hire someone to fix the sewer problem in your yard, get estimates from several reputable companies which have good service histories. Always make sure before you hire someone to do the job, that both parties understand exactly what the repair and clean up will entail, how much it is going to cost and how long the job should take to be completed. Get it in writing and never give payment in full until the job has been satisfactorily completed. Being licensed and insured is essential for anyone you hire.

Although, repairing the damaged sewer lines in your yard is an important part of the job, the cleanup of the extremely toxic waste is just as important as the smells and germs are sure to be unlivable. Make sure this part of the job is done well and stands up to the local ordinances concerning sewage clean up. If your sewage problem was caused by the city sewage system, they may be liable for the cost which might save you a large sum of money.

Using a septic line cleaner that can be flushed down your toilet is a good prevention for build up in your sewer lines, especially in the older lines. These cleaning products are inexpensive and easy to use. They can be a helpful tool to keep your sewer pipes clean, as clean as a sewer pipe can be anyway. Other forms of water damage such as flooding and condensation buildup can be very unpleasant problems to have to deal with, but sewage water damage is by far the nastiest and smelliest of them all.
