Water damage in your home is one thing, but sewage water
damage is a whole new problem. Sewage is a particularly nasty and dangerous,
bringing with it any number of fungi, parasites, bacteria, and other
contaminants that can seriously affect your health and the health of your
family members. Sewage damage repair is not as simple as removing the water and
drying everything up, but rather the treatment and decontamination of any and
all surfaces and items that may have come into contact with the sewage.
Sewage can soak and saturate the drywall of your home, the
carpeting, the floors, as well as furniture and clothing. Anything that has a
porous surface can absorb sewage and retain harmful viruses that remain
dangerous until they are properly remediated. For years it was assumed that
thorough cleaning coupled with disinfection would mean successful sewage
remediation. More recent recommendations strongly urge specialized treatment of
the affected area and disposal of many of the items that were exposed to the
Clothing, bedding, and any upholstered items exposed to
sewage should be discarded. This is the only way to be 100% sure that there is
no exposure to harmful bacteria. Carpeting may be salvaged if it is properly
treated within 48 hours of exposure, but even then, the preferred option (and
in many cases the more affordable one) is to simply have it replaced.
Why You Need a Professional Sewage Damage Cleanup Company
Sewage removal and restoration is a professional job, not
recommended for most homeowners, no matter how handy around the house you may
be. There are simply too many dangers related to the problem. Sewage can splash
into a person's eyes, or get into the system through open scrapes, sores, or
blisters. Such exposure can mean serious discomfort and illness. It is
important to remember that sewage falls under the category of bio hazardous
material, and should be treated accordingly.
Because of the nature of sewage damage, and the sewage
removal procedures required for a thorough cleanup, it is important to hire the
one professional company for the job, with the training, experience, tools, and
techniques that are needed for a complete and successful sewage cleanup, even
for the largest and most severe sewage spills including sewer backup and sewer
line breaks. Cat 1 provides the best in sewer removal and restoration for both

"I would like to highly recommend the company CAT 1 Restoration LLC for water damage restoration in a residence. We were out of town when our water heater flooded our home. I contacted Jay Cooper at 10:30pm and he responded immediately with blowers and vacuums and tackled the job with expertise. Jay was easy to communicate with and answered all our questions throughout the ordeal. CAT 1's blowers stayed at our home for a week and Jay meet with our insurance adjuster. Because of Jay and his company we feel the water damage was less extensive than if we had used another company."
