  • raw sewage
  • chemicals 
  • bacteria


  • Treat all water-impacted surfaces and furnishings as toxic, until properly decontaminated.
  • Wash your hands frequently to prevent further contamination
  • Keep children and pets out of contaminated areas.

  • Attempt to decontaminate surfaces with sprays and over-the-counter germicidal products, which may not fully disinfect contaminated surfaces.
