Sewage Backup Cleanup

We're Set Up To Handle Sewage Dangerous Clean-Ups

Immediately contact Revive for sewage backup and removal services if you experience a sewage backup at your home or business. Blocked water pipes and viruses can cause substantial property damage in sewer backups, and the water may contain viruses, bacteria, and other microbes that cause severe illnesses. Water contaminated with bacteria can cause hepatitis A, giardia, tetanus, and other illnesses.

Although sewage damage is not as large as large-scale flooding, it can create many health hazards and sanitation issues, along with property damage and injuries to humans. Sewage backup cleanup must be performed immediately if sewage backs up in your house. As it can still cause water damage.

This is not a job you can handle on your own. To fix this problem, get rid of sewage, and protect your home from further damage, call Revive’s sewage damage restoration and cleanup professionals.

Call us ASAP if you have backed-up sewage issues!

Sewage Backup Cleaning Service

It is important to take measures to prevent the spread of the problem. If you suspect sewage backup, you should immediately take the following steps:
  1. To prevent any emergency, remove all children, pets, and seniors from the house. Keep them out of the house until all damage is repaired and it is safe to do so!

  2. Protect yourself by wearing rubber boots, rubber gloves, eye protection, a face mask, and other protective clothing.

  3. Using a dry wooden stick and rubber gloves, turn off the electricity at the distribution panel if it is above water.

  4. Turn off your water and don’t use it for bathing, drinking, washing your hands, or doing dishes. Contaminated water results from sewage backup, which can be hazardous to human health.

  5. It may be necessary to contact utility companies and ask them to shut off the main water supply to your home if you are unable to turn them off yourself.

  6. Ventilate your home properly by opening its doors and windows. Airborne contaminants will spread throughout your home if you use the AC. Do not turn it on!

  7. You should remove any items that are dry and not contaminated from the area.

  8. To disinfect standing water, add small amounts of chlorine bleach.

  9. Inform your insurance company about the backup. Make sure you take pictures of any damage caused by the sewage backup. When you file your claim, you’ll need this proof.

  10. Don’t try to unclog the drains. The sewage spill needs to be cleaned by professionals before you can proceed.

Why do sewers become clogged?

It is sometimes hard to detect sewer blockages before they cause damage, while other times it is easier to prevent them. Sewer blockages are often caused by the following factors:
There is a risk of sewage backing up in your home’s pipeline if solid objects are in the sewage system, such as diapers, garbage, plastics, or other items.
Over time, your sewage system and its pipes can develop issues, such as misaligned pipes, collapsed pipes, cracks, and holes. It is often necessary to reconstruct or replace these systems to prevent sewage overflows.
A sewer backup can also be caused by tree roots in the sewer lines. Furthermore, tree roots can enter sewer lines through cracks, causing sewage backup problems. Replace old and leaking sewer pipes with new plastic ones to prevent tree roots from getting into the system.
Wastewater can overflow from the lowest opening if a sewage line backs up. Water from overflowing sewage can leave the home through the lower drains and toilets.
Pipe leaks are more likely to cause sewage backups. There are a few reasons why this might happen. During construction, a pipe may have been damaged. Clogs are not responsible for this type of malfunction.
There are three main types of sewer pipes: cast iron, PVC, and clay. In the same way that humans age, sewer pipes age as well. A damaged sewer system can lead to sewer backup problems when it ages. Some sewage backup issues can be prevented by installing new sewer pipes, but trenchless pipe repair can solve the most common sewer issues.

Sewage Backups: How To Prevent Them?

You understand the importance of preventing sewage backups in your home if you’ve ever experienced one. Contrary to this, if you haven’t experienced a sewage backup in your home, we assure you that you’ll be glad you took the time to read the steps for prevention.

To prevent sewage backups, follow these steps:


  1. Make sure all your pipes and valves are regularly inspected. Maintain them and repair them if necessary.

  2. Ensure that chemical products are not put down the drain.

  3. Flushing anything other than toilet paper is not recommended.

  4. Grease shouldn’t be put down the kitchen drain as it can harden.

  5. Ensure that trees aren’t planted close to the pipes so that their roots can cause the pipes to break.

In the event of a sewage backup, what should you do?

Keeping yourself and everyone else inside the building safe is your top priority. You should never attempt to clean up sewage spills or backups by yourself. Other than the steps we listed above. Or don’t clean it if you want us to do all of it. And finally, of course, you should contact us, Revive Water Damage Restoration ASAP! We can also deal with septic tank overflows.
