Cleaning up after a sewer backup isn’t anybody’s favorite thing to do… and it’s definitely something you should never attempt to do yourself; you should hire a team of sewage cleanup experts to handle the hazardous materials that come from raw sewage.
But how do the professionals do it?
How Experts Clean Up After a Sewage Backup
Typically, expert sewage backup cleaners start from the top down, hosing away contaminants and visible particles. From there, they wash all the surfaces with specialized chemicals that help kill the pathogens in black water. They’ll clean all the floors and replace what’s been penetrated by the sewage, and get rid of sewage-soaked carpets or clean those that have been in any contact with sewage.
Experts can then check for mold and perform mold remediation services to help stop spores from spreading, and they’ll make sure all the structural components in the building are completely dry before sealing them off. They’ll know what to discard and what can be sanitized and kept, too.
