Sewer Odor Removal Should Be Performed Immediately After a Backup
Heavy rains often lead to flooding, and since flood waters often carry raw sewage, they can cause sewer backups. Wastewater and raw sewage contain several pollutants in the form of parasites, viruses and fungi, which can cause illness and even death. Therefore, timely and proper cleanup, along with sewer odor removal and disinfecting measures, is critical after backups.
When sewage water enters a structure or building, it can result in heavy loss to your business or home. And even the smell of contaminated water can pose a big health risk. Methane is in that smell and it’s not just bad for your lungs – it’s also explosive.
Sewer odors can emanate from a leaky drainage system, worn out or cracked pipes, or bad vents. When it comes to removing that sewer odor from your property or home, it’s advisable to hire professionals like us. Our sewer odor removal team will first establish the water level by lifting the toilet lid. A plumber can then track the location of a leakage or a crack in the toilet.
The next step is to inspect the sump pump for odor because if the pump hasn’t been emptied regularly, it can make water stagnant and emit the smell of sewage. Our sewer odor removal team will also inspect the vent pipes on top of your home or building to see if any debris or leaves have clogged them.
