One of the most common types of water damage occurs when sewer pipes and drains backflow. This type of flood requires immediate attention due to its potentially dangerous nature. Flood waters and sewer overflows can contain bacteria, fecal material, viruses and other organisms, and if not cleaned up properly may result in adverse health effects.
If sewage damage has occurred, you must act quickly to restore your home to pre-loss conditions, if possible. If it can be salvaged, Tri State Restoration Services can help. While we are trained in all aspects of damage restoration, even Tri State Restoration Services may not be able to salvage sewage damaged articles; it is important to note that absorbent materials such as carpeting and drywall may not be restorable after direct contract with sewage- or flood- contaminated water. If Tri State Restoration Services professionals determine you have suffered sewage damage beyond repair, we will properly dispose of contaminated items for you.
Tri State Restoration Services provides immediate response to these types of disasters, employing proven techniques and procedures to minimize the damage and keep you safe.
These basic precautions can help to prevent disease:
  • Avoid skin contact with sewer water, especially cuts and sores. Keep them clean and covered.
  • Do not allow children to play in areas contaminated by sewage backup
  • Do not eat or drink anything exposed to sewer water.
  • Keep contaminated objects, water and hands away from mucous membranes (mouth, eyes and nose).
  • Wash hands frequently, especially after bathroom use, before eating and immediately following contact with sewer water or contaminated objects or surfaces.
*According to Dr. Michael Berry, Deputy Director of the U.S. EPA, "The pathogenic potential of a water-damaged structure should never be underestimated." Municipalities and building owners no longer can take a wait-and-see attitude towards sewage backflows. Rapid response by an IICRC-certified water damage restoration contractor is critical.
