With extensive experience in sewage clean-up, we have the skills and tools to ensure your home or business is clean, safe, and free of contaminants. In this blog, we’ll walk you through the sewage clean-up process and explain how The Dry Guy can help restore your space to its pre-damage condition.

Assessing the Damage

The first step in the sewage clean-up process is to assess the damage. Our team of experts will inspect the affected area and determine the severity of the situation. We will classify the spill based on its source and the type of contaminants present. Sewage spills are typically categorized into three groups:

  • Category 1: Clean water from a broken pipe or leak
  • Category 2: Greywater containing some contaminants, such as from a washing machine or dishwasher
  • Category 3: Blackwater containing harmful pathogens, such as from a toilet overflow or sewer backup

Extracting the Sewage

Once the situation has been assessed, we will begin the extraction process. Our team will remove the sewage and any standing water from the affected area using specialized equipment, such as submersible pumps and wet vacuums. This step is critical to prevent further damage and contamination.

Removing Contaminated Materials

After the sewage has been extracted, our team will remove any contaminated materials from the area. This may include carpeting, padding, drywall, insulation, and other porous materials that have come into contact with the sewage. These items will be properly disposed of to prevent the spread of contaminants.

Cleaning and Disinfecting

Once the affected materials have been removed, our team will thoroughly clean and disinfect the area. We use high-quality, EPA-approved disinfectants to eliminate harmful bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens that may be present in the sewage. All surfaces will be scrubbed and sanitized, including walls, floors, and any remaining items.

Drying and Dehumidifying

To prevent mold growth and further damage, it’s essential to dry and dehumidify the affected area properly. Our team will use industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers to create optimal drying conditions. We’ll also monitor the progress to ensure the area is completely dry before moving on to the next step.

Restoring the Property

Finally, The Dry Guy will restore your property to its pre-damage condition. This may include repairing or replacing damaged materials, such as drywall, flooring, or insulation. Our team will work diligently to ensure your space is not only clean and safe but also looks and feels like it did before the sewage incident.
