Burst water pipes is one of the common plumbing problems in the home. Several things can cause a pipe to burst, the main one from freezing conditions, and others by pipe failure due to age, misuse and damage. Burst pipes in your home is simply the worst thing that can happen to your plumbing system, it is not the cost of the repair of the pipe or even the loss of the water but the amount and cost of the damage the water can do.
Getting rid of water and drying out the area is the most important thing you can do to stop the growth of bacteria and mold and to disinfect after the area has dried out including wood beams, drywall. SEEL has truck mounted water extraction units that can assist with your clean up efforts and remove the contaminates from you home.
Sewer back up results when the volume of water and sewage flowing into a sewer system exceeds its capacity. Other causes of sewer back up include blocked sewer connections caused by tree roots, collapsed sewer pipes or improper use of the sewer system.
Clean up as soon as possible by a professional cleaning company as sewage contains pathogens that are harmful to people. Water contaminated with sewage may contain a number of organisms that affect the gastrointestinal tract causing vomiting and diarrhea and those that affect the liver Hepatitis A, & Yellow Jaundice. Water and organic matter should be physically removed using shovels and wet vacuums or other water removal methods using personal protective equipment. All porous materials exposed to the sewage must be discarded. They cannot be adequately cleaned.
