What should I do if there is a sewage spill at my house/office?
Call ACME Flood immediately. The sewage could cause serious health problems for you and your family the longer it remains in your house. ACME Flood’s trained technicians come prepared with all the sanitation equipment needed to clean and sanitize your residence or business. Our crews are trained to isolate the spillage from the remainder of the property and clean the affected areas. The crews will remove the sewage from your property leaving your property in its pre-sewage condition.
What dangers are contained in the sewage?
This depends on the nature of the sewage itself. These are some of the disease causing organisms in Sewage: Hepatitis A, Respiratory Disease, Bacteria, Bacillary Dysentery, Salmonella and Balontidiasis.
Can damaged carpets be cleaned and re-used?
Sewage-saturated carpets can be ‘saved.’- No. This is a Myth and it is not true. Porous materials, such as carpet, pad, upholstery, bedding, wicker, paper goods, or fabrics that can’t be washed in hot water, they must be disposed of safely.
Is it safe to remain in my home while the sewage is being cleaned?
No, it is not safe. The sewage could contain the agents listed above, plus others, all of which are not healthful. Our technicians wear protective clothing and use respirators. You have no such equipment and why would you want to expose you and your family to the air born agents that could hurt you?
