Why Choose ICE
Our Cleaning Process
Our technicians will begin by conducting a thorough risk assessment of the site to determine any potential hazards or dangers. It also allows our technicians to identify any equipment that may be useful for the job, as well as how many workers will be required and the estimated timescale of the project. If you require the service to be completed within a specific timeframe, we can supply more workers than normal to meet your wish; however, it’s likely that additional fees will be involved.
After using specialist equipment to extract all sewage water from the site, our technicians will decontaminate the affected areas using an air purifier. Regardless of the severity of the sewage spillage, we guarantee that by the time our technicians are finished, your site will be clean and safe. You’ll also be given a certificate upon completion which will document all tasks that have been carried out. This will serve as your guarantee.
Health Risks Associated With Sewage
Naturally, there are several hazards associated with sewage. One of the biggest concerns is exposure to harmful gases, such as methane and hydrogen sulfide. Though methane is not generally considered a toxic gas, its flammability makes it extremely dangerous to handle, particularly in high concentrations.
Likewise, hydrogen sulfide is highly flammable. Hydrogen sulfide is produced when bacteria break down plant and animal material, often in stagnant waters (such as sewage water). If not handled appropriately, hydrogen sulfide can cause life-threatening symptoms. When dealing with low concentrations of sewage, risks include nausea, fatigue, loss of appetite, dizziness and irritability, however, exposure to higher concentrations could lead to more serious conditions such as permanent damage to the eyes, rapid unconsciousness, loss of smell and pulmonary edema.
Moreover, exposure to sewage can also cause musculoskeletal disorders, such as osteoarthritic changes and intervertebral disc herniation, as well as skin conditions and infections like hepatitis.
