How do I clean my sewer back up?
If your home or business experiences a sewer backup, you want to contact a plumber as soon as possible. According to the government of Chicago, the city has a long history of sewage overflow issues, especially after heavy rainfall. However, sewage can be hazardous to have around you and your family, and a plumber is the best way to get started. Experienced plumbers will know what dangers to expect when dealing with sewer backups. For example, one of the most dangerous parts of dealing with a flooded basement is the risk of electrocution and explosions. This danger is mitigated only when the utility company turns off electricity and gas to the property.
The next step is to clean and sanitize the area. This process starts with draining all flood waters or sewage using natural draining or a pump or water vacuum. Next, you need to completely dry the area so you can remove any remaining dirt and debris from the area. Wash all areas that came in contact with floodwater or sewage with hot water and detergent. Rinse the area and dry it again. Next, sanitize the area using a mix of laundry bleach and water (8 tablespoons of bleach for every gal of water). Dry the area again. During the process, make sure you don’t track any debris or sewage into clean areas. But of course, if you don't feel comfortable taking the DIY route, leave the work to our professional Cook County septic system cleaners who are available 24/7 to better serve you!
