How Long Should you Wait if the Sewer Backs up?

6/22/2021 (Permalink)

a room full of sewage and a technician wearing a gas mask This is what a Sewage Back Up can look like!

Trust when we say ... you don't want this. But you already knew that. 

Sewage back up can be very hazardous to our health. It is home to a lot of bacteria and disease. Therefore it is so important that it is treated thoroughly as soon as possible.


Sewage gets right into every crack and crevice it gets near. It will settle into carpet, wood, tiles, anything and everything! 


It is our suggestion that you do not touch anything.  Sewage is riddled with dangers and it is not worth risking your health.

As you can see in the photo, our technician is wearing a gas mask. They're also wearing PPE all over, including a full protective suit.

At all costs, we are taking the safest method to completely dispose of the sewage. From full clean up through to disinfecting the areas thoroughly. It must be safely dealt with.

How Long Should I Wait After the Sewage Backs Up?

The short answer is ... do not wait. Call a specialist immediately. As mentioned earlier, the longer you wait, the more ground in it becomes. From the sewage through to the smell.

Act fast for an easier removal.
