Category 3 Sewage Clean Up

The most common source of sewage entering a house of commercial property is from floor drains, shower drains and toilets backing up which can be caused by clogged drain lines or heavy rains. When sewage contamination occurs, it is important to avoid the contamination where possible. The sewage can contain dangerous bacteria and pathogens, and the fumes and gasses produced by sewage spills can be toxic.
The severity and methods utilised in each Sewage Contamination Clean up is determined on a case-by-case basis, affected by the severity and category of the spill. Sewage spills are categorised by 3 categories each with there own set of pre-determined and successful clean up methodologies.
Category 1 is clean water. Although not considered sewage, clean water can become hazardous if left in contact with hygroscopic surfaces.
Category 2 is Grey Water. Grey water is generally considered unsanitary and can cause illness to humans and can be caused by washing machine, toilet, waterbed or dishwasher leaks. Like all sewage spills, grey water damage is intensified by the time taken to remedy the spill and temperature of the building and location the spill has occurred in. Category 2 sewage spills should be remediated as a priority to ensure contamination and pollutants are kept to a minimum.
Category 3 sewage is black water. Black water always contains pathogens making it a serious health and bio-hazard contamination. Black water can consist of, but is not limited to, sewage that contains urine and faeces, chemical waste, medical waste or sea water, river, water or ground surface water containing silt and organic matter. Sewage Contamination Clean up of a Category 3 nature must be remediated as a priority. Failure to do so will result in all materials such as flooring, walling and concrete to be removed.
It should be noted Sewage Contamination Clean up of a category 2, if not treated within 48 hours, in most situation will transform into a category 3 sewage spill.
Sewage water, blocked pipes, storm water, flood or river water are all considered dangerous, and a trained, experienced Sewage Contamination Clean up expert must be employed to ensure all dangerous pathogens and bacteria are removed before the clean up process can begin.
