Sewage spills are, not to put too fine a point on it, utterly disgusting. They can cause massive disruptions at your home or business by making life utterly unlivable as the accompanying stench can be overpowering. More important however is the significant health risk. Raw sewage includes a noxious combination of bacteria, viruses, and harmful parasites. These are not just a minor or moderate concern. Under certain circumstances, exposure to raw sewage can lead to death.

Sewage can spread rapidly throughout the premises and is dangerous. Therefore, you must call a professional as soon as a leak is identified.

How do you identify a leak?

If you notice any liquid coming out of a manhole, you are likely witnessing a sewage leak. Do not dismiss any wet areas in the vicinity which you cannot account for. Watch out for the following warning signs:

  • Drains backing up inside buildings
  • Seeping sewage or water from service lateral lines
  • Unusual odorous wet areas
  • Wet ground or water leaking around manholes in the street

If the leak is outdoors, you may be able to handle it yourself if the hazardous material is standing rather than flowing. Try to sprinkle garden lime until the affected area is covered in white dust. If you find the sewage is thicker in some places than others, you can mix the lime in with a rake.

If there is an indoor leak, do not try to fix this yourself. This is a truly significant health hazard and even a minor sewage leak is no joke.

We will handle your Sewage leak problem with the utmost professionalism. Our experienced technicians specialize in extracting sewage, mud, and sewage water. They will also remove any infected items from the premises. We will then install air movers to blow the moist air around the property. In this manner, our dehumidifiers can soak up the moist air to keep everything dry and prevent mold. This will also help you get rid of the smell.
