Sewage Mitigation

ARS provides sewage removal services to clean up a messy, unhealthy situation.

Sewage backups, spills, and overflows are all worst case scenarios for homeowners. Sewage is a toxic hazard and can pose many health threats, not to mention a very unpleasant smell.  This is why it is of the utmost importance to have experienced sewage extraction and clean up professionals carry out a thorough sewage cleanup of the entire area as quickly as possible.

Risks of Lingering Sewage Backup

Exposure to sewage can cause some health threats. These are made even more severe when sewage backups occur indoors. Water alone can cause some problems, as it promotes the growth of mold and many other microorganisms. When water is contaminated with sewage, the health risks posed increase exponentially as sewage contains millions of extremely unhealthy germs and bacteria. During sewage removal, very specific steps need to be taken by certified sewage removal professionals to ensure that it is appropriately removed. Otherwise, there can be long-term health consequences like:

  • Campylobacteriosis, Cryptosporidiosis, E Coli, Encephalitis, Gastroenteritis, Giardiasis, Hepatitis A, Leptospirosis
  • Extensive mold growth from any moisture not properly removed

The most obvious reason to act quickly with sewage removal is for the general safety of your loved ones and those around the area.  The viruses and bacteria that can spread from the sewage backup pose serious health risks, which is why ARS is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide sewage cleanup services.
