Preventing Health Issues

Preventing Health Issues Caused by Sewage Exposure

We often tend to take the sewage and drainage systems at our homes for granted. On flushing our toilets, draining the baths, or running the garbage disposal, all the water and wastes simply vanish down the drainage system waving us goodbye, forever. However, as city dwellers, we’re also often exposed to raw sewage, that leads to certain health issues.

Our leading plumbing services in Dubai lists down the most common causes of sewage exposure among the city dwellers today:

  • Overflow of toilets, due to clogging in the drainage and pipes.
  • Overflow of septic tank wastes, including mixtures of waste water, organic wastes, solid and/or liquid wastes, and human excreta.
  • Overflow of clogged sinks or bathtubs, causing exposure to harmful sewer water.
  • Over-filling of sewage systems, especially in the basement, during heavy rains and monsoons.

Diseases and their symptoms caused by exposure to raw sewage, when proper plumbing services in Dubai are not called for:

  • Typhoid fever: high fever, fatigue, stomachache, cough, headache, loss of appetite, and sometimes, rashes; can spread easily through contaminated food and water.
  • Gastroenteritis (or, stomach flu): watery diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramps, vomiting, and headaches.
  • Hepatitis A: fever, fatigue, abdominal pain, jaundice, nausea, loss of appetite, and diarrhea; caused through viruses that may have ingested infected fecal matter.
  • Giardiasis: watery diarrhea, loose stools, stomachache, and cramps; caused by the parasite Giardia.
  • Dysentery: bloody diarrhea, stomach cramps, and fever; caused due to ingestion of contaminated fecal water.
  • Salmonellosis: fever, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps; caused due to extended exposure to Salmonella.
  • Campylobacteria: fever, abdominal pain, nausea, bloody diarrhea, cramping, and vomiting.
  • Diarrheagenic E. Coli: watery or bloody diarrhea, fever, nausea, abdominal cramps, and vomiting; caused due to exposure to fecal or contaminated water.
  • Cryptosporidiosis: loose or watery diarrhea, slight fever, stomachache, and cramps; caused by accumulation of contaminated water over time.

Once you’re aware of the symptoms, how important plumbing services are in keeping us all fit and healthy in our day-to-day lives becomes clearer. Hence, issues in drainage and sewage systems must be treated immediately and effectively by experienced professionals.

Often, you might prefer fixing issues yourself in place of going for good plumbing services. It’s getting more and more common by the days, too. However, this is not recommendable, as good knowledge and enough experience is necessary for unclogging pipes or carrying out any plumbing-related work.

Misconceptions and the Biggest Plumbing Myths

As long as the drainage system is fine and working, things seem well and good. But as far as conventional methods are concerned, here are a few myths debunked from the best plumber in Dubai that may not go with traditional plumbing myths we all assume:

If there’s drainage in your sink and/or shower, everything is NOT fine.

Drains are often the first sign that something is going wrong underneath. When the flow of water starts slowing down while passing through your drain, it’s a sign you should not ignore, so it can be fixed early enough. Being the most popular plumbers in Dubai, we suggest that using the affected should be avoided until it is repaired or removed, in order to prevent serious problems in the future.

NEVER stick lemons down your garbage disposal.

Although lemons help reduce the smell from garbage to a great extent, they do not clean them and may often affect the blades too. Instead of using lemons to clean up disposal “naturally”, turn off the power source and use warm water, soap, and brush to gently wipe away the dirt.

Do NOT use harsh chemicals unless you want them to feed on your pipes!

Many people think that eradicating the clog can be done forcefully only, using harsh chemicals. However, such methods cause a lot of damage too and get accumulated in the pipes, eventually causing corrosion that can be expensive to get done with later on. Such chemicals may also cause health problems by getting into the water. Apart from plumbing services, you can call us if you are looking for the AC maintenance in Dubai, and we’ll get your pipes unclogged as well as provide regular maintenance, to prevent expensive emergency services later on.

The pressure of water MUST remain stable.

Yes, the water pressure should not fluctuate. In case it comes and goes or keeps getting stronger and weaker, it could be the sign of an underlying problem and must be checked by an expert.

Often, DIY is preferred in place of good plumbing services. It’s getting more common by these days, too. However, it is not recommendable, as good knowledge is necessary for unclogging pipes or carrying out any plumbing-related work. We provide services for the best and emergency plumber Dubai near me, so you can rely on us for everything that’s plumbing-related. Get in touch with us even if you have minor problems, so we can fix them before they turn major.
