Proper Procedures

Many people have the can-do attitude that suggests it’s just work that needs to be done. Rather, the truth is that sewage can foster diseases which when introduced to a home, quickly spreading devastating effects. The proper procedures for sewage cleanup are the best guard one has against spreading contamination. These are the procedures we follow:

  1. Professional cleanup will begin with protective clothing. From rubber boots to waterproof gloves, these things guard against contamination.
  2. All clothing or linens included in the spillage must be removed from the scene and washed in hot water with soap. Those items that cannot be washed must be professionally dry-cleaned or discarded.
  3. Next, the entire area (walls, floors, ceilings, and counters when applicable) must be washed with hot soapy water and then disinfected with bleach.
  4. Finally, we’ll make sure that the area is allowed to dry completely so that no more mold will grow
