Sewage backups in your property are not pleasant to deal with. Depending on the size and scope of the damage, some people consider cleaning it themselves. DIY sewer backup cleanup is not typically recommended and for major spills a professional should be called in. The sewage water needs to be removed as soon as possible, using a pump to remove excess water and shoveling dirt, soil and other debris into heavy duty plastic bags. Any affected carpet, insulation, drywall, and baseboards should be discarded. These building materials are porous and cannot be fully sanitized and therefore should be replaced. You can then begin the process of washing down the area with hot water and disinfectant.
