MCS is a “recovery and decontamination specialist” allowing us to respond with speed in your time of need. Some implications of sewage inundation (contaminated water) are the presence of microbial organisms. The most common being:

1.                  Viruses

2.                  Parasites

3.                  Bacteria

4.                  Mould (can germinate within 48 hours of incident) 

 All pose major health concerns and are invisible to the eye. To prevent mould contamination structural drying is a necessity. When a sewage back-up occurs, mitigation of further damage is explained to our client and MCS provides advice on how to avoid / minimise cross contamination of unaffected areas (by plumber and residents).

In the absence of an existing Australian Standard, MCS has developed our own standard of compliance when attending a sewage contaminated site. MCS provides a professional service and has developed a thorough, methodical approach which is critical in ensuring total decontamination. MCS has the experience, procedures and resources necessary to deal with the variety of sewerage jobs encountered. All contaminated sites undergo a proven decontamination procedure removing contaminants which also involves cleaning and deodorizing the affected and surrounding area. Proper equipment and a capability to handle many diverse situations are necessities. Our standard has been tested over time with swab sampling and third party testing assessment of results ensuring that harmful levels of foecal choliforms no longer exist.

MCS is converse is dealing with property managers, insurance companies, insurance brokers, body corporate management and real estates (converse with tenancy rights). Separate reporting and invoicing between content damage, structural drying and common area restoration is standard practise for MCS thereby minimising your time with the administration of this unfortunate incident.

Work is undertaken with due care necessary to promote a safe working environment for all involved. OH&S standards are adopted for the protection of clients, your customers and suppliers, and our team members.
