What Makes Sewage Cleanup Hazardous?

Sewage is labeled as a biohazard. While you might think that sewage waste within your own home isn’t a big deal – IT IS! Not only is it disgusting and messy, but you never know what type of hazards lie within the waste that is now in your space. You should never enter the space without appropriate protective clothing and gear. You should never touch any contaminated items, either.

Some of the known hazards include:

Sewage could contain any number of bacteria, viruses, disease, and other contaminants. When you handle the materials that have been affected, you risk exposure to these contaminants. This is a matter of safety and it can affect your health, as well as the health of any human or animal in your space.

There are very specific protocols in place that dictate exactly how to handle sewage cleanup. These protocols define the necessary personal protective equipment, the processes that need to be followed, and disposal of materials. Do not try to handle this mess on your own.
