Sewage backups are not only disgusting, in most cases they are hazardous. Sewage water contains parasites, pathogens, and other toxic agents, carrying anything from E. Coli and salmonella to Hepatitis A and B. Most commonly, sewage backups occur when a toilet backs up, water from streams flood into your home, or sewer backflow occurs. In all cases, sewage backup is a serious event and should be managed by a professional remediation team.
Do not attempt to enter the affected space or clean the water on your own. Water mitigation specialists are required to wear full PPE (personal protective equipment) and use specialized cleaners when cleaning sewage. This is why we highly recommend that you call a professional IICRC certified business to clean your home after a sewage backup.
Every water damage specialist on The Flood Team is IICRC certified and professionally trained to manage sewage backflow events. We safely remove all sewage from your home, sanitize your property, and ensure all materials are completely dry, clean, and mold free. This is The Flood Team Guarantee.
The water mitigation industry defines three categories of water based on their level of contamination. Category 1 water is the cleanest, often coming from your main water lines like your kitchen sink. Category 3 water is the most contaminated, filled with pathogens and bacteria. And the longer water sits, the more contaminated it becomes. Sewage water falls into Category 3 which is why we take these accidents very seriously.

Sewage backups occur when sewage, dirty water, or a combination of the two rise from a toilet, sink, or drain. Usually, this results from blockage of the sewer pipe, preventing waste or dirty water from flowing unobstructed. The result? A mess that The Flood Team is trained, certified, and thoroughly equipped to address. As it quickly spreads, sewage can contaminate and destroy flooring, walls, and other household and personal items. Not only does it create a strong odor, but the presence of bacteria, viruses, mold, and parasites can lead to health hazards too. Even a few hours of standing sewage can be dangerous to people and pets. The Flood Team will work to rapidly eliminate exposure to potentially harmful pathogens and minimize damage with our fast response. Call us so we can get started right away.
