Emergency Sewage Cleanup Services

Unsurprisingly, sewage backups are one of the more dangerous events that can take place in your home. Sewage contains viruses, fungal contaminants and other things you’d prefer to keep in a pipe underground – not in your home. If you’ve had a sewer backup in your home, we’re available 24/7 to help.

When it comes to such a sensitive cleanup, there are many reasons to hire trusted professionals with extensive experience, expertise and equipment in sewage cleanup and mitigation. There are many issues that require proper handling such as:

  • Bacterial control

  • Soil removal

  • Sewage pump-out and removal

  • Cleaning, sanitizing and deodorization

  • Because sewage is considered a biohazard, proper protection and clean up techniques are required to return your home or building to a usable and safe environment.

Speed Clean is a local company serving Oakland, Macomb and Wayne Counties. You can call us 24/7 and we’ll respond quickly to clean your home.

How Our Sewage Cleanup Services Work

Every home is different. That’s we have some carpet cleaning options tailored to some of the common problems your home might have.

  • Cleaning: Our IIRC-certified cleaning techs will remove solid waste that has made its way into your home. We’ll identify affected items and remove those that aren’t salvageable. We’ll then clean the affected areas of your home using antimicrobial cleaning solutions. In the process, we’ll deodorize the affected areas of your home.

  • Drying: This is an essential part of the process, preventing damage and mold growth. We use state of the art equipment to dry your home and measure moisture levels. We’ll continue to monitor the moisture levels of the affected areas in your home until we ensure it’s sufficiently dry.

The Danger of Sewage Backups

Aside from water damage to the structure of your home, sewer backups can be particularly harmful because of contaminants in the water. There are three types of contaminated water.

  • Category I water refers to water from a clean source, such as a broken water supply line or a leaking faucet. If this water is not promptly treated, it has the potential to deteriorate into category 2 or 3 water, depending on factors like the duration of exposure, temperature, and contact with surrounding contaminants. Therefore, timely treatment is crucial to prevent the escalation of water damage.

  • Category II water is classified as contaminated water that has the potential to cause discomfort or illness. Examples of this type of water include an overflow from a washing machine, a toilet overflow with urine (but no feces), or an overflow from a dishwasher. It’s important to note that category 2 water may contain bacteria and viruses. If left untreated, it can rapidly deteriorate into category 3 water, emphasizing the need for immediate and proper treatment to minimize health risks and further damage.

  • Category III water is classified as grossly contaminated water that poses a significant health risk, with the potential to cause severe illness or even death if ingested. Any contact with this water should be avoided. Examples of category 3 water include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has started to support the growth of microbes. It’s crucial to understand that category 3 water may contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and various types of harmful microbes. Special precautions and professional assistance are necessary for the safe and effective handling and remediation of water damage caused by flooding rivers or sewer backups.
