Raw sewage and flood waters contain bacteria and other micro-organisms, which are extremely hazardous to human health.
These can be transmitted by touching contaminated items or by tracking them into uncontaminated areas (for example, shoes, clothing, personal items, and etc…). Children and pets are especially vulnerable.
If raw sewage is present in your house, avoid all contact. Because of potential infectious diseases and bacteria, personal protective equipment (PPE) is necessary to handle any sewage contaminated items.
Absorbent materials such as carpeting and drywall will not be restorable after direct contact with sewage.
treat all water-impacted surfaces and furniture as toxic, until properly decontaminated
keep children and pets out of contaminated areas
track contaminated materials into undamaged areas
attempt to decontaminate surfaces with sprays with sprays and other over the counter germicidal products, which may not fully disinfect contaminated surfaces.
Touch any impacted items without proper PPE
