Any amount of water damage bad for your home and difficult to deal with, but a sewage leak is especially difficult to remediate.

SEWAGE LEAKS CAN CAUSE EXTENSIVE WATER DAMAGE
Water damage on it's own is difficult to manage, and adding sewage to the situation makes it even more difficult to remediate correctly. Sewage damage must be properly contained, sanitized, and dried out. If any moisture is left over, this can create pockets of evaporated sewage that can get into difficult-to-reach areas such as:
- underneath floorboards
- between walls
When sewage moisture reaches these areas, it traps the bacteria, pathogens, and other harmful contaminants which can lead to putrid odors. If you're in a humid area, this can even lead to the growth of mold colonies in as little as 48-72 hours. If this happens, your home must be properly dried with professional-grade dehumidifiers and other specialized restoration sewage damage restoration equipment.
