Expert Sewage Restoration
Professional sewage extraction locations in Maryland and Washington DC
Sewage damage may potentially be the most harmful and dangerous substance that can be found in a building. Sewage contains fungi, bacteria and viruses. Among these viruses are Hepatitis, HIV, and AIDS. Many victims of sewage damage believe that the waste distributed among the affected areas belong only to the occupants of that particular building. When, in fact, the waste could potentially belong to an entire community of people and animals, exposing the victims to various unknown risks which could prove to be deadly.
The IICRC states in its S500 Guidelines regarding water / sewage damage that, “Highly absorbent sewage-saturated materials, such as carpet, pad, upholstery, bedding, wicker, paper or even fabrics that cannot be washed in hot water (at least) 130 degrees F/54 degrees C for at least 10 minutes, must be contained and disposed of properly. This goes for sewage-saturated drywall, insulation and other structural materials.”
Sewage Damage Services Include:
- All hydroscopic materials (carpet, furniture, fabrics, paper, etc.) will be contained and removed from the premises.

Sewage damage should never be taken lightly. Should insurance not cover the damage caused by a sewer backup, families and small businesses should consider paying out of pocket to ensure all IICRC guidelines are met.
