Aftercare Cleans Up and Decontaminates Sewage Problems Under Houses
Untreated sewage contains disease-causing organisms such as bacteria, viruses and parasites. Left untreated under your home ,these contaminants can cause nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea. Respiratory infections and allergic reactions may also result from inhaling associated airborne microorganisms. Many times air condition lines run under your house. If these lines get sewage in them they will dry up and these particles will blow directly into your home; causing indoor air quality problems. Sewage backups in crawl spaces result in insect infestation. Flies, Maggots and Tiny Nat's will lay eggs in every inch of a homes crawl space; eventually coming up the pipes and drains into the house. Most sewage problems under houses are discovered when the humidity and heat outside is high; resulting in a very unpleasant odor. If the damaged area is not cleaned and dried properly, a musty odor, signifying the continued growth of microorganisms can remain long after the sewage overflow.

Blocked or broken pipes will continue to dump contaminated water under your house. It is very important to stop using all water facilities when a leak is discovered! Most plumbers will not work in sewage water; plus you can't do a proper evaluation of a crawl space when it is filled with contamination. Aftercare will pump all sewage water from under the house. Our technicians will then proceed to remove all debris from your crawl space( plastic ground liners, paint cans, wood, siding, old plumbing pipes and trash.). A plumber will now be able to inspect the area without discomfort and trash blocking problem areas. Once the problem has been fixed; Aftercare will come back and start to dig out one inch of all soil and sand that has come into contact with sewage; this sludge or soil will be bagged and dragged out from under the house. Next the technicians will spray an anti-microbial on the skirt and ground throughout the entire crawl space. Taking it one step further we will give all soil a liberal application of lime to further reduce odor. Now we are ready to place fans under the house to dry the space back to a pre-loss condition. A six mil. moister barrier will be put back under the house creating a shield between the ground and your floor. Aftercare makes crawl spaces so clean you can eat in them!
