All You Ever Wanted To Know About Sewerage (But Were Afraid To Ask)

14 June 2016

As unpleasant as it may be, sewerage is an issue all communities need to deal with. We’ve definitely come along way from medieval times, when sewerage was thrown out into the street! And we can think ourselves lucky that we live in first world countries where exposure to safe and hygienic bathroom practices are common for most citizens. Residents of countries like India are not so fortunate. Even so, it’s important to remain cautious and ensure that our homes and workspaces are protected from damages caused by sewerage exposure. After all, the health and hygiene of our family and office members is paramount.

What Is Sewerage?
Sewerage is simply the waste from any warm-blooded animal, including us humans. It’s a unpleasant but necessary by-product of human (and animal) behavior that can be dealt with safely and hygienically if the right measures are taken.

The Health Issue
It might sound obvious, but exposure to sewage can be a major health issue. But the extent of the health effects of unsanitary sewerage practices can extend to may be surprising. They include cardiovascular degeneration, musculoskeletal disorders, infections like hepatitis, skin problems and respiratory issues.

Keeping People Safe

Depending on the extent of damage, it’s paramount to contact a professional to ensure cross-contamination is avoided, and water damage restoration and any plumbing work is done correctly.
