Sewer Backups 101 (part three)
One of the "automatic" tendencies of a homeowner with a sewer loss is "Just throw some bleach on it!" Is that really effective? While bleach is a good disinfectant, it's fairly mild in comparison to the professional antimicrobial solutions out there. Did you know Hepatitis B is always a factor with a sewer loss? And bleach does NOT kill it? It can remain active for EIGHT months as long as moisture is present. Even if the area dries out, if it's not been cleaned properly and moisture is reintroduced, the virus is activated once more. Moisture = mold/viral growth. While disinfecting is a necessary step, CLEANING and DRYING must be done properly - let our professionals at Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair take care of that headache for you!
