Sewer Backup In Basement

When a sewer backup occurs, many individuals view it as simply a mess that needs to be cleaned up. They do not realize the variety of health risks that come along with it. A sewer backup is indeed considered a biohazard. Some of the most common bacteria found in sewage include:

  • Acanthomoeba: Can cause infections in the eyes, throat, nose, and ears
  • Coli: Can cause diarrhea and abdominal cramping
  • Leptospirosis: Can cause vomiting and muscle aches
  • Heliobacter Pylpri: Can increase the risk of developing ulcers
  • Salmonella: Can cause diarrhea and abdominal cramping
  • Hepatitis: Can cause liver failure and liver infection

All of these, and more, pose a serious health risk if a sewer backup is not properly handled.
