The Variations of Sewage Water and Potential Health Risks
There are three main types of contaminated water and the highly trained sewage cleanup team at 911 Restoration will inspect the damage to determine what type you are facing. Once the contaminated water type is determined, we will begin the appropriate method to restore your property and get it a fresh new start.
The three types of contaminated water include:
- Clean water – This type of water comes from a clean source, which may be a broken clean water supply line or water faucet. If clean water goes untreated it can get worse due to factors such as time, temperature or coming into contact with contaminations.
- Gray water – Gray water has a significant amount of contamination that can cause discomfort or health issues to those who come into contact with it. Examples of gray water include an overflowing washing machine, a toilet that overflowed with urine or an overflowing dishwasher. If gray water is allowed to sit for an extended period of time, it can then lead to black water.
- Black water – Of the three most common types of water, black water is the most threatening. It is extremely unsanitary and can cause severe illnesses, or in worst-case scenarios, death. Black water can result from a river that has flooded, a toilet that has flooded with feces or water that has been standing for so long it has begun to support microbial growth. If you suspect you have black water in your home or business, call the sewage cleanup team at 911 Restoration of Santa Clarita immediately.
Once we have removed the overflow and disinfected the property, we will begin drying the area to keep it moisture-free. The sewage cleanup experts in Santa Clarita will walk you through steps you can take in order to minimize further damage before our team arrives onsite. We will remain on the phone with you and walk you through the process of shutting off the water line. By shutting off the water line, it will stop water from flowing into the property.
