Any sewage backup calls for a thorough cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing. When dealing with sewage, it is considered a category three black water emergency. Microbes and bacteria in the sewage pose the threat of infection or mold. When you use a water damage restoration company, some steps are fundamental to the process. If you need sewage removal & extraction in Carlsbad Hometown Restoration has the expertise and equipment to get the job done.
Removal of Water and Solids
Water extraction with pumps that handle debris is required. Removing as much water possible is critical. The key is beginning the cleanup immediately. Floodwaters can bring dirt, debris, dead animals, bacteria, chemicals, and biohazardous waste. Once the black water is removed, cleanup can begin.
Dealing with Porous Materials
A porous material is typically not restorable after being exposed to black water. Preliminary disinfection of the area should be done. Carpets and drywall are examples of porous material that will need to be removed and discarded. The area has to be dried before the contaminated elements are disposed of properly.
Cleaning and Disinfecting
Because of the contaminants in black water, the areas and items affected need to be cleaned and disinfected. After the preliminary disinfection is done, a much deeper cleaning takes place. Once everything is dried, and the damaged material is gone, then a final sanitization is carried out.
Completely Dry Everything
Carpet, drywall, and other content should not be restored before everything is completely dry, or else you risk spreading the contamination. Any remaining moisture encourages mold growth.
