Drain Cleaning & Sewage CleanupProperty Recovery 911was summoned for drain cleaning by this Philadelphia homeowner to clear a clogged drain. Upon arrival we discovered not only a clogged drain, but also a significant overflow requiring a sewage cleanup as well.
Viruses: Primary Sewage BiohazardViruses do not reproduce, instead they multiply via a process called replication. After attaching to a host cell, the virus then injects the cell with a genetic material known as Ribonucleic acid (RNA). Within the cell walls the virus replicates, exhausting the cells resources and generating abundant copies of itself. The colony ultimately causes the cell to perish and rupture, releasing the viral progeny to attack healthy cells. The primary route of viral infection from a sewage spill is ingestion.
Sewage Spill Cleanup
Property Recovery 911 was contacted by a homeowner who was referred to us by a Chubb Insurance agency for a sewage spill cleanup. Located in the Penn Valley section of Montgomery County Pennsylvania, the homes soil line was clogged for an indeterminate period of time as the elderly occupants rarely accessed the basement. Ongoing use of the drainage system resulted in an extensive raw sewage spill erupting from the air conditioning condensate drain every time the plumbing was used. Once discovered, drain cleaners were enlisted to remove the blockage and Property Recovery 911 technicians were immediately dispatched to perform professional sewage removal, including sewage spill cleanup as well as disinfecting and cleaning the entire area.
