Proper Restoration Techniques for Sewage Backups

Sewage water is treated differently than other water damage situations. Although we work hard to salvage as much as we can within the affected areas, much of the saturated areas must be removed and replaced with new building materials.

At Insight Restoration, we follow a specific procedure for sewage damage backups per the IICRC regulations:

  1. Extract all standing water
  2. Remove any remaining solid waste, debris, and dirt
  3. Remove all porous items that may have been exposed to the sewage water
  4. Wash down and sanitize any walls and flooring within the affected area
  5. Rinse and repeat
  6. Dry the space using a mix of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the space effectively
  7. Barricade the space until the drying process is complete
  8. Replace damaged building materials with new

The Top 3 Hazards When Facing Raw Sewage

Safety is key when working with hazardous sewage conditions. Hiring a certified sewage backup restoration contractor is essential. However, it is important to understand which hazards are present within your property BEFORE a certified professional arrives.

 Contaminated Food Items

Any food or healthcare items present within the affected area must be immediately disposed of. Bacteria and viruses, such as Hepatitis A, could contaminate your food, which can cause severe health reactions. Luckily, these hazards are not airborne, but if not handled correctly, small particles can easily encounter food, utensils, or medicines present within the affected areas.

 Hot Utilities

It is important to turn off any power breakers within the property to avoid electrocution. When you choose Insight Restoration, we can take the proper actions necessary to ensure power breakers are all turned off.

If you need to access the property before hiring a trained sewage backup restoration contractor, you can take special precautions by wearing rubber boots while on the premises, avoid standing in water while turning the breaker off, and using rubber gloves to turn off the power panel.

Damaged Textiles & Clothing

Clothing and fabrics must be handled with care and discernment when exposed to raw sewage. Only a certified sewage backup restoration professional can properly evaluate which items can be salvaged.

Our team at Insight Restoration is equipped with the proper training to identify which items need to be disposed of and which ones can be properly cleaned.
