Is Sewage in a Crawl Space Serious?
“My first clue was a questionable odor which I suspected was emanating from our crawl space. Someone had to go down there and check things out. I immediately called Water Extraction Experts. My suspicions were right; they found the crawl space flooded with about a foot deep of grey water. It was painfully obvious we had a broken sewer line.”
Other signs of a broken line could be warped flooring, cracked walls along with water stains and signs of mold. Raw sewage in a cellar, basement or crawl space can be a serious health concern for the occupants of the home. The sewage and contaminated soils under the home should be removed by professionals who have the experience and proper equipment to work in such hazardous conditions.
Cleaning and decontamination is a very precise process involving powerful fans, dehumidifiers, a lot of sand and at times a pump truck. It is challenging work which includes scraping the contaminated grey water into bags in order to safely remove it from out of the crawlspace and away from the premises. All while wearing a hazmat suit, respirator, and gloves.
Another very important consideration is any possible effect on the HVAC system and the ease with which air or dust can move from a contaminated crawl area into the living space.
