Sewage Spill in Sandy?

8/10/2021 (Permalink)

Sewage Spills Are Dangerous

SERVPRO of Gresham and SERVPRO of Oregon City / Sandy technicians are on-call 24-hours a day in Sandy and have required safety gear and equipment to handle any form of sewage spill hyperlink.

Sewer system water, or “Category 3 black water” carries dangerous viruses and bacteria, so it is imperative for the health and safety of your employees and customers to mitigate the damage as quickly as possible. 

This water is highly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Blackwater can come from flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with fecal matter, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth. Blackwater may also contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes.

Sewage backups happen for many reasons. Some examples are:

  • Blockages due to tree roots
  • Broken or collapsed sewer lines 
  • Septic tank obstructions
  • City sanitary mainline obstructions
