Sewage overflows, spills and backups are one of the most unwelcome and undesirable occurrences in a home. Often referred to as raw sewage, septic tank waste, or sewage sludge. Sewage is also called black water and is grossly contaminated and can contain pathogenic, toxigenic or other harmful agents. Sewage can contain anything from liquid to solid household wastes, industrial effluent, human excrement, blood born pathogens, and any other debris that is discharged into the sewer lines through drains and sewage systems.
If a sewer line breaks or begins to back up into your home, the results can be horrifying. Bad odors, bacteria, stains, and contamination can all result from a sewage intrusion, and require immediate attention. Various health risks are also associated with exposure to sewage. These risks particularly affect small children, the elderly, and those with immune system or respiratory problems. This can cost several thousands of dollars in structural damages if left unattended.
