The crawlspace is the area underneath of the home that houses the pipes are ducting. This is one area where we see water damages from pipes breaking. If drains are broken or get clogged, this could lead to a sewer back up in the crawlspace. Sewage waste is classified as category 3 waste water that could be harmful to those exposed due to bacteria and mold. If the sewage waste sits in the crawlspace mold will eventually grow due to the elevated moisture. Thus, it’s essential to call a professional like Disaster Master to clean up the sewage waste and mitigate the damage to your home.
Recently in Lincoln City, Oregon there was a rental property that had a sewage back up in the crawlspace. The owner of the property hired Disaster Master to decontaminate the crawlspace. The technicians wore full hazmat gear to protect them while cleaning up the sewage waste. They scooped up all sewage waste and disposed of it properly. Then they put lye down to absorb the moisture and sanitize. The entire crawlspace was cleaned and disinfected with antimicrobial. The homeowner was very satisfied with the work that Disaster Master did because it helped get the home back up and running for nightly rentals.
