If floodwaters or raw sewage enters a home, extensive damage can occur. This is especially true if sewage or water comes in contact with absorbent materials. Carpeting and rugs may not be able to be saved, and drywall may need to be replaced. However, in addition to damaging property, raw sewage or floodwaters contaminated by sewage is hazardous to your health. Therefore, children and pets should be kept out of affected areas. Additionally, avoid tracking contaminated wastewater into unaffected areas of the house on your shoes.

While a flood that contains raw sewage or bacteria-contaminated waters can damage your property, it can also cause serious health effects. Therefore, cleaning up after such an incident is best left to professionals in home restoration.
