Why Sewer Cleanup Should Be Handled by Professionals
Water damage is usually categorized according to severity:
Category 1: Also known as clean water, this is damage due to a broken pipe or a leak in a water supply line to something like a refrigerator.
Category 2: Sometimes called grey water, this may involve water damage from a flooded toilet (with no feces) or discharge from a washing machine or dishwasher.
Category 3: Water in this category is often referred to as black water. The most severely contaminated, this is damage from sewage backup, floodwaters, seawater, and toilet water containing feces.
Category 3 water is deeply contaminated, containing unsanitary agents that can’t be safely cleaned with household products. An affected property must be remediated which includes removal of affected items, disinfection, specialty cleaning, advanced drying techniques, and prevention of the spread of further damage.
