If You Have Sewage Problems In Your Home, Bio-One Can Help

Sewage problems in the home can be a big problem. Not only is it unsanitary, but it can also be dangerous for your health. That's why it's important to get professional help from a company like Bio-One to address these problems safely and effectively. We're experts in sewage backup cleanup and can help restore your home or business property.

Whether it's a problem in your home's plumbing system and sanitary sewer or it's a problem in your neighborhood, our specialists can help. Let's cover the basic problems that most homeowners face regarding sewer backups and what you can do to stay safe. Feces and urine carry dangerous bacteria and diseases that professionals should only handle.

What are the dangers of sewer backups in the home?

Sewer backups can be extremely dangerous for property owners, and they can cause extensive damage to the affected area and even lead to health problems. Here are some of the dangers of sewer backups that you should be aware of:

Health Risks - Sewer backups can contain harmful bacteria and viruses that cause serious health problems. If you or someone in your family comes into contact with sewage, you could be at risk for diseases like hepatitis, cholera, and dysentery.

Property Damage - Sewer backups can cause extensive damage to your home, and flooding from sanitary sewers can ruin carpeting, flooring, walls, and personal belongings. In addition, the wastewater from a sewer backup can seep into cracks and crevices, causing mold and mildew to grow.

Environmental Contamination - Sewer backups can also contaminate the environment. If the sewage spills into a nearby pond or lake, it can pollute the water and make it unsafe for swimming or fishing. In addition, sewage can leach into the ground, contaminating soil and groundwater. This is particularly dangerous when sewer line cracks from tree roots and clogs.

Financial Loss - Sewer backups can be costly to clean up. In some cases, homeowners insurance will not cover the cost of damage from a backup. As a result, you could be facing a significant financial loss if a sewer backup damages your home.

If you live in an area prone to sewer backups, it is crucial to take steps to protect your home. Keep an emergency kit on hand in case of a backup that includes clean clothes, food, water, and other essentials.

Signs of Damage in Your Sewer Lines

If you have a septic tank or are on a municipal sewer system, it's important to know the signs of sewage damage. Sewage damage can occur suddenly, such as from clogged or overloaded sewer lines, or it can happen slowly, over time, from a small leak. Either way, sewage damage is severe and should be addressed immediately to prevent further damage and health concerns.

Foul odors: If sewage is present, it will likely be accompanied by a powerful and unpleasant smell.

Visible waste: Another sign of damage in sewer lines is the presence of visible wastewater. This could be in pooled water, sewer backup, or overflowing toilets or drains.

Stained surfaces: If sewage has come into contact with surfaces like walls, floors, ceilings, or furniture, it will likely leave behind staining.

Health symptoms: If you or anyone in your home or business is experiencing a sudden onset of health symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or fever, this could signify that you've been exposed to sewage and should seek medical attention immediately.

Clogged drains: If your drains are slow or clogged, this could indicate a blockage in your main sewer line.

Overflowing toilets: If your toilet is overflowing or sewage is backing up into your bathtub or shower, this is a serious sign that your sewer lines are blocked and need to be addressed immediately. Always avoid flushing solids and paper products down the toilet.

How can you stay safe if you have a sewage problem in your home?

If you have a sewage problem in your home, you need to contact a professional plumber to have the issue fixed as soon as possible. In the meantime, you need to stay away from contaminated water.

  • Ensure all food is properly sealed and stored away from any areas that may be contaminated with sewage.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after coming into contact with any contaminated areas.
  • If you must use the bathroom, flush the toilet twice to ensure that all sewage is flushed away from the bowl.
  • Avoid using any tap water in your home until the problem has been resolved. Please contact your local health department if you have any questions or concerns.
