Sewage spills are unpleasant and can cause vast disruption to your business or home. Raw sewage can contain a variety of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that can cause serious illness and even death. The risk of contamination from unknown chemicals such as solvents, carcinogens and pesticides is incredibly high.
The potential danger of toxic, asphyxiating and flammable gases within a confined space can also be hazardous to your business and can have disastrous consequences to the environment and local water supply.
