Sacramento Sewage & Contaminant cleaning & removal

Sacramento sewage cleanup

Many people don’t understand the hazards that sewage creates, particularly for small children, the elderly and those with immune system or respiratory problems.  In reality, sewage can be extremely dangerous.The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) offers these facts to dispel some typical myths.

Myth # 1 – Sewage-saturated carpets can be “saved.”  Porous materials, such as carpet, pad, upholstery, bedding, wicker, paper goods, or fabrics must be disposed of safely and cannot be restored..

Myth #2 – Partially sewage-flooded buildings are safe. Unless contaminated areas can be sealed off to prevent cross-contamination of other areas, buildings are not safe. Only trained professionals using specialized equipment are qualified to restore sewage damage

Myth #3 – Chlorine bleach decontaminates sewage. While bleach is a remedy, it’s quickly inactivated by sewage. Even dead fungi and bacteria may contain chemicals that cause an allergic response. Affected areas should be cleaned thoroughly, followed by appropriate disinfectant application.
