Frequently Asked Sewage Cleaning Questions

Why is sewage hazardous?

Sewage contains pathogens such as bacteria, parasites and viruses that can transmit diseases to anyone that comes in contact with it. These pathogens can make you very sick, and in some cases can even be life-threatening. It is imperative that you get the problem fixed as quickly as possible to help mitigate these potential risks.
 

What Causes a Sewage Leak?

Sewer systems can only cope with a finite volume of waste. If the amount of wastewater your sewage system can handle is exceeded, say due to heavy rainfall or flooding, can cause your sewer system to back up and flood. A blocked sewer can also be caused by the flushing of inappropriate products down the toilet such as wet wipes or fat and grease or damage due to plant growth such as tree roots. If you suspect you have a problem with your sewage system, contact our team to book a complimentary site visit.
 

What is Sewage?

In it’s most simple term, sewage is wastewater that is carried away from your premises. Wastewater can be classified into two groups: grey water, which is water that has drained from your sink, bath and washing machine for example, and black water, which is water that has come into contact from fecal matter.
 

Can I Hire the Equipment and Fix a Blocked Sewer Myself?

Due to the hazardous nature of raw sewage, we would recommend that all sewer cleaning is completed by a certified and professional drainage company such as ourselves. We have the personal protective equipment, tools and knowledge to deal with a blocked sewer safely and effectively.
