What Are Some Sewage Overflow Hazards?

Sewage spills are more serious that you may think. In addition to causing damage to floors, walls, and carpets, they also present health hazards. That’s because they contain disease-causing bacteria. Any cleanup work you arrange should only be performed by professionals for your own safety. Some of the bacteria in backup sewage and problems caused by them include:

  • E. Coli—Abdominal Cramping, Diarrhea, & Maybe Death
  • Leptospirosis—Muscle Aches & Vomiting
  • Acanthamoeba—Eye, Nose, Throat, & Ear Infections
  • Hepatitis—Liver Infection & Liver Failure
  • Salmonella—Abdominal Cramping & Diarrhea
  • Helicobacter Pylori—Increased Chance of Ulcers

Water is water—so you may think. The truth is that not all water is the same.
