Expert Sewage Cleanup For Homes And Business Owners In The Tampa Area
We provide sewage cleanup for businesses and homeowners in all FL towns including Tampa, St Petersburg, and Clearwater.
Among all the many origins of water damage, sewage is the one with the most complicated cleanup process. Not only is there the standard water damage to contend with, but there are also additional concerns such as sanitary and health risks.
Causes Of Sewage Backups
There are many ways a sewage backup can occur. Some are avoidable, others not so.
- Tree Roots: Surprisingly enough, one of the main culprits of sewage backups is tree roots growing and making their way into pipes in the sewer main. Once they’ve infiltrated the pipes, they can corrode and block them, causing a backup. This one is pretty difficult to avoid. Regular maintenance can help.
- Grease and oil: Usually found in the kitchen sink, grease and oil can eventually build up and create a full or partial blockage. Avoid putting grease and oils from cooking down your drain.
- Hairs and other bathroom waste: Hair is a huge contributing factor to many sewage backups. Other bathroom waste includes sanitary napkins, diapers or paper towels. To avoid this, don’t use your toilet as a trash can. Only flush human waste and toilet paper!
- Structural damage: Over time, any pipe will suffer from some level of structural damage. They can corrode or collapse, potentially causing a backup.
It is extremely important to diagnose the core of the problem to avoid a repeat incident. 24/7 Complete Restoration staff can get to the heart of it to find where your backup is coming from. They can determine whether the backup was avoidable or not, and if so, help you find a way to avoid more problems in the future.
Water Damage Restoration for the Following Businesses
Steps To Sewage Cleanup
Once you have determined the origin of the backup, it is time to begin the cleanup, repair and restoration process.
- Initial Assessment: In addition to diagnosing the core problem, the initial assessment also includes determining the scope of damage and developing a game plan for treatment.
- Damage Reduction: In order to prevent further damage, we will need to turn off all water and stop the backup from continuing.
- Removal of Contaminated Material: Anything that has been contaminated by black water and cannot be salvaged will need to be removed from the property.
- Spill Cleanup: After further damage has been prevented and contaminated material has been removed, the actual spill or backup cleanup can be started.
- Prevention: Going back to the core of the backup, we will need to take steps to ensure it does not occur again.
