Idaho Falls Sewage Problems Call for Knowledgeable Help from SERVPRO

As a form of wastewater management, the sewer system in your home delivers contaminants (human waste) produced by our community to a wastewater treatment facility for processing. Making various liquid and solid sludge suitable for refining and safe for reuse in our environment is critical.

When you have a sewage system in your Idaho Falls home that has existed longer than its expected life cycle, problems arise. Issues from poorly maintained, or improperly installed systems and time cause degradation of your sewer lines, leading to backups, overflows, improper drainage, and contamination in your home.
The water produced by the sinks, tubs, showers, dishwashers, and clothes washers consist of what professionals call Grey Water. Water from your toilets, which contains feces, urine, toilet paper, and flush-water, is what we call Black Water. Both contain biohazards that pose dangerous health risks to workers and occupants if exposed to large amounts.
When a restoration company, like SERVPRO, responds to any water damage or flood damage situations on your property, they follow IICRC Standards for Professional Water Damage Restoration (S500). These standards provide microbiological information concerning the handling and disposal of wastewater at the residential or workplace level and their possible harmful effects on our environment.
SERVPRO treats all sewage and flood waters as highly infectious waste materials, including all of the items that they come into contact with during an event. Sewage sources may contain a variety of communicable diseases including cholera, tetanus, typhoid, polio, and hepatitis, all of which require special safety precautions to prevent infection. Pathogens and bacteria must be dealth with in a careful manner.
SERVPRO technicians use the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) to use such as respirators, chemical-resistant gloves, rubber boots, splash goggles, and even full-body suits when necessary. We also set up the proper containment areas to prevent the spread of waste while attempting to move materials and equipment into and out of the affected area.
Our cleaning technicians use an EPA-registered disinfectant on all waste materials and any surfaces exposed to infectious waste, following specific dwell times and reapplying disinfectants as needed to remove all of the waste from different types of material.
Wastewater disposal improperly causes significant issues for our environment, making the process critical. Our technicians use the proper disposal methods and test the entire area after performing a restoration on your property.
Often, third-party evaluations in day-care facilities, nursing homes, or hospitals, are employed. Regulations dictate that where public health issues, microbial contamination, or high-risk contamination may occur in the environment we have created, no precaution is exaggerated.
Do not take any chances when dealing with this kind of issue. Contact SERVPRO of Idaho Falls today and put our expertly trained technicians to work for you. (208) 523-5365
