Some sewage losses may contain harmful bacteria that can cause illness and should be left alone until a professional arrives. In this time you should avoid entering the contaminated areas, keeping children and pets etc. out of this area is extremely important. If you must enter the area then do so wearing shoes and remove the shoes before you walk into unaffected areas, this will prevent possibly damaging areas of your home that were not initially affected by the loss. It is HIGHLY recommended that you do not touch any materials affected by the sewage, even if there is no visible contamination. If you have touched items affected by the loss then thorough washing of the hands is necessary, also make sure to keep your hands away from your face as there are many routes of entry (eyes, ears, nose and mouth) on your face. Once our technicians arrive they will assess the situation and take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of yourself and the rest of your home. They will most likely set up containments or barriers and use HEPA filtration machines (Air scrubbers) to isolate and control the affected areas. This will greatly reduce the possibility of spreading any potential contaminants to unaffected areas. Any porous materials (drywall, carpet and carpet pad, linoleum, some hardwood floors etc.) will be removed immediately and all areas will be treated with antimicrobial products. All non or semi porous materials (concrete, metal or wood framing etc.) will be rinsed clean using high pressure/high temperature water from a portable or truck mounted system.
