Sewage pipes are essential to our every day lives. They carry waste and waste water out of our homes and business so we don't have to! So what do you do when a sewage pipe bursts and that filthy water damages your property and contents?
Their are three main categories for water damages. Sewage pipe breaks fall into Category 3 and may carry life threatening pathogens and microbes. Clean-up of this type of water loss consists of heavy extraction, source removal, contents and affected building material disposal. The important part of a Cat 3 water loss is making sure that it is mitigated properly so as to not affect or damage previously unaffected surfaces or contents.
Setting up containment, air filtration, application of anti-microbial disinfectants as well as enzyme based disinfectants and cleaners are all important parts of a successful mitigation. Another problem when dealing with a Cat 3 loss is odor. When dealing with a sewage loss, odor needs to be controlled, especially in residential homes where the client is remaining in the property. A few ways we control the odor is with the use of specially designed chemicals while cleaning as well as being vigilant during the source removal phase.
If you have a Cat 3 water loss or are suffering from a sewage damage, give us a call for more information!
