When you hear bio-hazard you probably think blood… this is an example of a bio hazard, but did you know that sewage is also a bio hazardous material?

Sewage is one of the most dangerous substances that you could come in contact with in your home or business. It could cause you to become very ill. Unfortunately people don’t understand how hazardous sewage really is. Give SERVPRO of Northern Rhode Island a call if you suffer from a sewage loss, we’re trained to handle these types of situations and we’re here 24/7 to help you!

  • Sewage contains a variety of bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi. These can cause someone to become very sick.
  • Sewage exposure is more dangerous for people with weak immune systems, children under 2 and adults over 60, pregnant women etc.
  • It is absolutely not safe to stay in a building that has been flooded with sewage, unless the area can be completely sealed off.
  • If your carpet, bedding, and paper, or materials that can’t be washed with hot water, have been contaminated by sewage, they need to be contained and disposed of. This can include insulation and drywall as well.
    • There is an extreme health risk if these items are not properly taken care of.
  • Only people that are highly and specifically trained to handle these types of disasters should remediate sewage.
