Why Hire Expert Help for Norcross Sewage Cleanup?

When you need sewage cleanup in Norcross, the challenge faced is not like that created by ordinary water damage. Wastewater backing up and spreading in your home or business can pose significant health risks for both occupants and those who attempt to remove it. Having trained and certified experts like the technicians from AdvantaCare in your corner ensures a fast and safe resolution of a frightening and difficult problem.

What Causes Sewers and Drains to Backup?

Flooding in your Norcross basement or bathroom from a clogged or broken waste line is an emergency. The backflow of solid debris and filthy water often occurs without warning, but the conditions creating the crisis might have been building over time. Reasons for contaminants reentering your home from the pipes intended for sanitary disposal include:

  • Blockage in the pipe between the municipal sewage system and your home or business is linked to the introduction of or build-up of solid items into your waste line when items drop into sinks and toilets
  • Broken, aging, or defective waste lines that no longer align properly or suffer cracks or collapses
  • Growth of tree and other plant roots into the pipeline, gaining entry through connections and gradually clogging the flow or strangling and breaking pipes as roots surround the lengths
  • Stormwater or other fluids from a neighborhood waste or supply line break that overwhelm the municipal sanitary system, forcing water and contaminants to move back into your basement, toilets, and shower or floor drains

How Dangerous Are Sewer Backups?

Sewer contents often include gray or Category 2 water like bathtub or shower contents or clothes or dishwashers. Rapid remediation of this moderately tainted fluid is essential to protect flooded structural components, but a more significant concern is the Category 3 water used in flush toilets. Human waste intended for the city sanitation system or a septic tank can return through the plumbing during a sewer backup. A broad range of infectious organisms and toxic materials spill into your property when the waste flow reverses, including:

  • Parasites
  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • Fungi
