Emergency Raw Sewage Clean up Project in Coronado
Raw sewage clean up emergencies are serious, but can be completed quickly with the proper equipment and a rapid response time.
15 Minute Response Time to a Sewage Water Call at 2 AM
Our team here at San Diego Flood Restoration is in the emergency water damage business, where things can go wrong for clients at any time. We are available around the clock because there is no telling exactly when a client will need emergency raw sewage clean up, even in the middle of the night. On Wednesday night, (or Thursday morning depending on your perspective) our crew received a serious emergency call from a local Coronado resident at 2 am. We were at their home on B Street within 15 minutes, working on a major raw sewage clean up project.
The emergency was caused by a main sewage line backup that released black water into the home, and the raw sewage ran from the bathroom, through the dining room, and out past the kitchen and dining room. Toilet backflow is a serious crisis that must be dealt with immediately by trained professionals. Raw sewage is hazardous to your health. The clean up effort should include the use of industry-grade personal protective equipment.
While a 15-minute response time may seem impressive in the dead of night on a Wednesday, it is simply the nature of the business. San Diego Flood Restoration takes raw sewage clean up very seriously, but these calls are all in a days work. Water damage professionals are trained to always be ready and on call in the event of an emergency.
The Hazards of Raw Sewage Clean up
The damage caused by the raw sewage backflow was severe.
Toilet backflow, main line backup, and black water intrusion should be treated as dangerous emergency situations that require immediate attention. While a leaky faucet will release safe, potable water, toilet backflow will release category 3 water, which contains dangerous levels of toxic microbes and pathogens. If you experience sewage backflow, leave the contaminated area call us immediately.
Raw sewage clean up is serious work that requires the proper safety techniques, years of experience, and the willingness to respond to an emergency call at any time, day or night. Remember this story if a sewage backflow emergency happens in your home, even at 2 in the morning on a weeknight. We will be ready to respond at a moment’s notice.
