Even hearing the word sewage can make you cringe. No one in Laconia wants to deal with removing sewage damage in their homes. Damaged or overflowing sewage lines are one of the most common culprits when it comes to sewage damage. This involves anything from an overflowing toilet to a damaged plumbing system.
Sewage is not only disgusting, it can also be very toxic. Sewage is chalk-full of harmful bacteria and microorganisms. Removing sewage from your home in Laconia is not an easy task and All Brite Cleaning & Restoration highly recommends that you hire a professional who is properly equipped to tackle the job. Exposure to sewage can lead to a variety of health issues, including but not limited to:
Exposure to Parasites
- Giardia: An anaerobic flagellated protozoan parasite that thrives in the small intestines. You can suffer from acute gas, dehydration, diarrhea and severe weight loss.
- Cryptosporidium: a protozoan parasite that causes Cryptosporidiosis. You can suffer from severe diarrhea if your immune system is healthy. Individuals with poor immune systems will suffer from worse symptoms including death.
- Tapeworm: a parasite that feeds on the intestinal track. You can suffer from fatigue, vitamin deficiencies, weight loss and in severe cases seizures.
Exposure to Bacteria
- E. Coli (Escherichia coli): bacteria that thrives in the lower intestine. You can suffer from bloody diarrhea, nausea, fever and vomiting.
- Salmonella: bacteria that can survive without a host. Your symptoms can be similar to typhoid fever, gastroenteritis, paratyphoid fever and other symptoms associated with food poisoning.
Exposure to Viruses
- HPV (Human Papillomavirus): a sexually transmitted disease that can also infect individuals when exposed to raw sewage. You will suffer from wart growth and possibly cervical or genital cancer.
- Adenoviruses: viruses that cause respiratory infections like bronchitis, croup and pneumonia.
