How much does sewage cleanup cost?

The question many homeowners and landlords find themselves asking. Having to deal with a sewage spill and the inevitable sewage cleanup process is nobody’s favorite job. Having to deal with foul-smelling water and… other things in places where it certainly does not belong isn’t exactly a walk in the park. This is even more unpleasant if the sewage leak is inside your home rather than out on the front lawn. Isn’t the whole point of a sewage system to keep the sewage where it doesn’t belong? While that is true, there are still a handful of things that can cause a sewage leak, unfortunately. 

So, we’ve established that it is unpleasant to look at and smell. But one of the primary concerns is that sewage commonly contains large amounts of toxic and hazardous exposure to the components of the sewage itself. So, even if you have a minor leak and think the effects and sewage cleanup process won’t be that big of a deal, think again. This hazardous material can quickly infect your property, furniture, carpet, and personal belongings. A professional sewage cleanup team will be required for almost any sewage leak to deal effectively with the situation. 

And, of course, on top of all of that, there is the burden of the sewage cleanup cost. As mentioned above, a professional cleaning and restoration company is required in most situations to ensure your home and its inhabitants are protected and handled with expertise. 

So, our aim here is to give you a clear understanding of the expected costs involved in the sewage cleanup process and an overview of what to expect throughout this process. Please know that we do our best to give you the most accurate information, but costs are affected by a manner of things, such as the extent of the issue, the size and style of the home, and its materials. And, of course, costs will vary from company to company. 

Sewage cleanup – Overall costs

Getting down to it, you can expect to pay roughly $2000-$10,000 to repair and clean a sewage leak in Mamaroneck. Again, there are a lot of variations to consider, but you can estimate that it will cost you around $7 per square foot of the sewage leak. Of course, there are outliers on either side where it may cost you less than $2000. Or extreme cases, reaching up to $50,000 in cost. It depends on how large a sewage leak you are dealing with and what materials and areas have been exposed. 

Sewage cleanup -Repair costs

Repair costs should be the primary focus for you to address first. Because if you have an ongoing issue that is still leaking into your home, there’s little to no point in starting the cleanup process, as the core issue has yet to be dealt with. Often, a plumber is called in to address this. 

Most plumbers charge an hourly rate of $59 to $79 an hour. But that is just standard Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 costs. If a pipe bursts and you’re forced to call a plumber at 2 am on a Saturday, it will undoubtedly cost you more. 

Sewage cleanup – Cleanup costs

Once the cause of the issue has been dealt with, it’s time for your sewage cleanup team to start the cleaning and restoration process.(Our sewage clean up team in Mamaroneck is the best local solution)  This is usually where consumers see the most variation and rise in invoices, as the larger the affected areas, the larger the bill. Your sewage cleanup team will need to clean out the sewage matter and then sanitize and deodorize your space. 

A chemical cleaner will cost you around $20 to $100; it depends on the brand and the need for a heavy-duty cleaner or not. Additionally, the use of a Wet Vac sits at around $50, much like a drain rooter, which starts from $55 and goes up to $175. You will likely need the use of all of these products to complete the job. 

Additional costs

Now, when it comes to additional expenses, many of these items and processes below may seem “optional” at the time. But they are here to prevent this or a similar issue from occurring again in the future, which ultimately saves you money down the line. Your restoration team will be able to give you more specific recommendations on what would be best for your home. But we’re going to give you a general overview of the costs here. 

Although you may look at the chart above and think, why on earth would I need at least half of these, they are designed to save you money and stress in the future. Always refer to your Restoration Operators for unique advice and lean on their expertise.
