Following a sewage spillage, the first call should be to WowNow Hire where we can provide immediate assistance. Our emergency sewage cleaning specialists can respond at short notice and make a detailed assessment of the damaged area.
Sewage spills are closely related to flood events as are classified under this category. Whether you have a small spillage from a toilet overflow, or if large areas of a building are contaminated due to a blocked/burst stack pipe, WowNow Hire can assist immediately.
The remedy to treat sewage spillages is fairly similar for each spill. Very large spills will require the attendance of a vacuum tanker which can remove thousands of gallons of sewage and flood water which, once complete our team of technicians will remove any remaining debris, completely disinfect the area and our flood restoration team will then install drying equipment to ensure mould and fungus cannot develop and the ‘damp’ smell which we are all familiar with is prevented.
We will keep you informed at each stage of the process and deal with your insurance company or if you prefer we are happy to send all the paperwork directly to you.
It is highly recommended that sewage damage is dealt with quickly following the event. This is for many reasons which are not just health related.
The longer the fabric of the building is exposed to sewage (as it contains water) it will become weakened, may expand (in the case of wood), and if not dried will smell and eventually support fungal growth which has another adverse impact to health.
This will have the effect of increasing the cost of repair to the building and prevent carpets or any redecoration being carried out.
It should not be underestimated that correctly drying a building is key to reducing secondary damage and denying an environment for bacteria and viruses to survive.
