Sewage Clean Up
Sewage backups in your home should be considered an emergency situation and you should ALWAYS leave the clean up to professionals. There are three types of water as classified by the IICRC. Category one water is considered “clean water” and is from a source such as a broken pipe or a supply line. Category two water or “gray water” results from an overflow in a washing machine or a dishwasher. This type of water may contain some bacteria or viruses. Category three, known as “black water” contains the most contaminants and should be cleaned quickly and properly. Flood water, toilet overflows containing feces and water that has been standing for an extended period of time all fall into this category. At SERVPRO of South Mobile County, our water technicians have undergone extensive IICRC training and certification to ensure they know how to properly clean this type of water loss. It is important that you call us immediately if you fall victim to a category three water damage. Our experts can clean up the damage and make sure that your home is restored to a safe and healthy environment for you and your family.
