Dangerous Bacteria

     Sewage is wastewater produced by communities from domestic wastewater, industrial wastewater, and rain water. This wastewater contains fecal bacteria and is also referred to as black water. If black water comes in contact with any building surfaces, testing must occur to identify the presence of harmful contaminants and/or eliminate the presumption of risk. The most commonly tested fecal bacteria indicators are total coliforms, fecal coliforms, Escherichia coli, fecal streptococci, and enterococci. Fecal bacteria can carry disease-causing pathogenic organisms such as Ecoli, Salmonella, and Shigella commonly found in sewage contamination. Exposure to black water is dangerous to your health. There are numerous water-related infectious diseases. Minimize your risk by calling a professional right away.

     Environmental remediation deals with the stopping, reducing and removal of pollution or contaminants from environmental media such as soil, groundwater, sediment, or surface water. Remediation is also defined as to contain or remove a hazardous substance from an environment.

     NES tests for disease causing pathogens and harmful bacteria found in sewage and wastewater. Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, our samples are analyzed for results and delivered with a full report including recommended next steps.  We can complete the project by managing the remediation firms, providing a post-remediation verification assessment and a comprehensive report to affirm the area clear and safe. Finally, completing the project by overseeing the construction and/or restoration company to have your space back to normal again.

From flash flooding to a backed up septic system, our team can help in any hazardous wastewater situation.

NES adheres to all internationally recognized standards and reference guides for water damage restoration, such as IICRC S500.
