It’s important to clean up your property as soon as possible because sewage water often has bacteria, pathogens, and other microorganisms that can cause serious health problems.
What Causes Sewage Backups?
It can be hard to figure out what caused a sewer backlog, but you need to know how it happened if you want to prevent it from happening again. The following are a few typical reasons for sewer backups:
- Blockages and Pipe Clogs
Sewage can back up inside a building due to clogs and obstructions in the sewage line and septic system on your property. Over time, grease or other debris builds up in the pipes and starts to block the flow of water. This causes the sewage system to back up.
- Misaligned Pipes
Sewage might back up inside your property if pipes are not correctly aligned or slanted. This can happen if the junctions in your pipes aren’t correctly sealed or if the pipes that transport wastewater from your property aren’t placed at the correct grade.
- Tree Root Intrusion
Tree roots can cause various issues when they penetrate your subterranean sewage systems. They may significantly harm the sewer system as a whole, cause soil erosion, and obstruct the flow of sewer water.
- Extreme Weather Conditions
Heavy rain and other environmental factors can cause sewer pipes to overflow, which can cause backups of untreated sewage. Even the smallest inch of swiftly moving water could seriously harm your drainage system, forcing a backup of sewage out of the drains on your property and potentially resulting in catastrophic damage.
Steps Involved in Sewage Backup Cleanup
Raw sewage removal can be very dangerous, so we use a thorough, multi-step plan to get your home back to the way it was before the damage.
- Thorough Inspection
The moment you hire our crew for professional raw sewage cleanup services, we’ll conduct a comprehensive property inspection to assess the damage caused by the sewage backlog and pinpoint the location of the backup in your drainage system.
- Sewage Water Extraction
We will completely drain any remaining sewage water off your property using robust pumps and dewatering tools. This entails removing any water from your basement, carpets, rugs, walls, or wherever the sewage damage is.
- Sanitation and Disinfection
Then, special tools and cleaning solutions will be used to clean and disinfect the affected areas. Additionally, we’ll conduct tests to make sure your home or commercial property is free of infections and harmful bacteria.
Getting rid of the smells that come from sewage water is by far the hardest part of cleaning sewage. Our staff eliminates those offensive odors from your property using industrial-grade tools and green cleaning techniques.

This last step of sewage damage cleanup or sewer repair entails restoring your residential or business property to a pre-loss state by making repairs or replacing defective goods and materials, depending on the severity of the damage.
