How Harmful Are Bacteria?
The vast majority of bacteria are not harmful to humans, and many of them are even helpful to us. The wrong kind of bacteria, however, can make you extremely sick. In most households, the most dangerous type of bacteria are those that are found in black water, or sewage water. If you experience a sewer backup, a toilet overflow, broken sewer pipes, or any other type of plumbing emergency that results in a sewage spill in your home, it’s important that you have it cleaned up by an experienced professional right away. Then, you need to have a professional bacteria testing and assessment performed in order to determine whether you still have bacteria in your home.
What to Do After a Sewage Spill
After a sewage backup or spill, it’s important that you know what to do to reduce the risk of illness. Here are some steps you should take to protect yourself and your household from exposure to sewage:
- Avoid direct contact with the sewage. Contact with sewage can result in exposure to bacteria, viruses, and other dangerous contaminants. Gastrointestinal illnesses and skin rashes are the most common health issues associated with exposure to sewage.
- All items exposed to sewage should be either disposed of or cleaned thoroughly. Porous materials such as carpeting and mattresses generally should be replaced to avoid creating a permanent health hazard.
- Even after your home has been cleaned, some level of bacteria may still be present. To ensure that your home is safe, have a bacteria testing and assessment performed by a professional.
