Just when you start thinking that water in your home is the worst thing you can imagine; along comes a blockage in a drain pipe that creates something far worse. A sewage backup can be highly unpleasant and unhealthy. Just the term "sewage" takes the mind to distasteful places, and cleaning sewage up is a dirty job.
Five Point Restoration is happy to do it.
It is true that some sewage jobs can involve the raw, nauseating backups you are probably imagining. They bring destruction, odor, and health hazards that must be handled with industry proven precautions for your health and safety. But like all property disasters, there are different degrees of sewage damage. The industry definition of sewage is water that "is highly contaminated and could cause death or serious illness if consumed by humans"(IICRC S500 Standard and Reference Guide).
This means water coming from any drain in the property might be classified as sewage based on the level of microbial contamination. Just because it looks clean doesn't mean it is. Water draining from a kitchen disposal can have every bit as much microbial contamination as a toilet overflow. But whether the source is a cracked disposal, a clogged toilet, or a root-packed main halfway to the street, the headache you feel as a homeowner is the same.
