Sewage Cleanup FAQs
You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers.
We listed our most common Sewage cleanup and backup questions below. Check them out.
Do I Need to Hire a Sewage Cleanup Company for a Backup in My Toilet?
Yes! Category 2 (grey water) and 3 (black water) damages need professional sewage cleanup and restoration services. If your home or business has a cracked or broken sewage sewer pipe, call DRIRITE® right away.
What Causes Sewage Damage?
Generally speaking, several factors can cause sewage blockage. However, there are a few reasons that can happen more than others: clogged sewer pipes, tree roots, damaged plumbing, sewer main blockage, and heavy rains.
Why Is Sewage Backup Dangerous?
Sewage is filled with contamination (human waste, bacteria, parasites, etc.). Not to mention, prolonged exposure can harm your health and property. Sewage backups and broken pipes release the smell of waste (along with toxins) into the air, posing a real threat to your health and the environment.
How Quickly Should I Report Sewage Damage?
Prolonged exposure to sewage damage may contaminate unaffected areas of your home or building. As soon as you discover sewage damage, evacuate the premises and get in touch with a sewage damage specialist immediately.
What Causes a Toilet Backup?
Plumbing mishaps can be caused by malfunctioning parts, clogs in the system, or user errors.
If you require someone to find the source of the blockage or malfunction, contact your local plumber.
Can You Get Sick From Sewage Backup?
Yes. Physical contact with raw sewage and airborne sewage particles threatens your well-being. Inhaling the vapors of sewage backflow can lead to gastroenteritis, which (if untreated) can cause fever, vomiting, and cramping. Air-borne sewage toxins can also attack your upper respiratory system, causing asthma-like symptoms and shortness of breath. If you have a sewage backup, leave the cleanup and restoration to the pros at DRIRITE®.
What Should I Do After Sewer Water Damage?
Call your local restoration company for emergency sewer services if you see sewage backup coming from any of the drains in your home. Then make sure you adhere to the following suggestions:
- Keep your family away from affected areas and avoid all contact.
- Shut off the water going to drains throughout your home.
- Do not use sinks or showers.
- Do not use washing machines and dishwashers.
- Do not flush toilets.
- Avoid using any plumbing fixtures, drains, or appliances until a professional reverses the backups from your sewer pipes.
Warning: If the sewage backup or water backup flows near electrical outlets, turn off the electricity to your home.
How Much Does Insurance Cover?

Is it Safe to Live In a House With Sewer Water Damage?
Staying in a house with sewer damage can be dangerous. Water from sewer backups is unsanitary and contains harmful bacteria. Don’t put the safety of your family at risk. Contact a DRIRITE® for immediate sewage restoration.
Will There Be Any Lingering Odors After Your Restoration Services?
You may smell unpleasant odors throughout the drying process. The stench is caused by increased heat and humidity; it can also come from the drying materials or accident areas. Deodorizers are often used to minimize lingering smells. As the drying process continues and humidity levels drop, odors will disappear.
When Should You Hire a Professional Restoration Company?
Dealing with water damage issues can be daunting. Contact a professional service like DRIRITE® to do the job for you. Our team of experts has the tools and experience to get the job done right.
