#Portable Extraction

Due to the biohazardous nature of sewage, it is imperative to both remove anything that is biohazardous by physical removal and sanitize the areas. In this case, because of the large volume and liquid nature of the sewage, using portable extractors were the most effective means to physically remove the sewage. These portable extractors provide powerful suction that safely sucks and store the substances within the machine, to be disposed of in safe ways. The portable nature of the machines gives great convenience and effectiveness as means to extracting water and/or sewage. 

In heavily affected areas, the wool carpets were removed and disposed of. Once sewage was removed, including heavily affected carpets, tiles and concrete subfloors were treated with anti-microbial treatments, to sanitize the area. lower levels were checked, finding a few affected areas. 19 air movers and 7 dehumidifiers were placed down, to dry-down the structure. Coliform/E.coli testing was done after 4 days, to test the presence of sewage, and came back absent. The drying equipment was removed after 5 days. 


The client was extremely happy to have the rooms completely safe from sewage biohazards, as this is crucial to the health of clients to the hotel. After only 5 days, the rooms were safe to refit the carpets, and for the facilities to be prepared.
