Sewage overflow or back flow intrusion into your home is a dangerous and nasty mess. The most immediate danger when not mitigated and removed professionally can be a major health hazard.
Your at risk if you come into contact with feces while being unprotected and unskilled.
There are three concerns with sewage which are listed below:
Viruses , gastroenteritis, hepatitis A
Bacteria, salmonellosis, shigellosis, diarrhoea, trachoma, melioidosis
Parasites, giardiasis, dwarf tapeworm infection, threadworm infection, hookworm infection, strongyloidasis.
There are three types of loss categories when it comes to home water intrusion.
Category 1: Clean Water
Category 1 water is from a clean source like a broken water supply line, or leaking faucet. If not treated quickly, this water can turn into category 2 or 3, depending on length of time, temperature, and contact with surrounding contaminants.
Category 2: Gray Water
Category 2 is contaminated water and could cause discomfort or illness. Washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow are a few examples of category 2 water damage. A category 2 can degrade into a category 3 if left untreated.
Category 3: Black Water
Category 3 water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and any contact should be avoided. Water from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth are a few examples of category 3 water damage. Personal Protective Equipment should be employed with this category.
