Types of Contaminated Water
When you have a sewage backup at your home, knowing the source can help keep you and your family safe until the sewage restoration company arrives. If you don’t know the source, call a reputable Vermont sewage cleanup company immediately and do not come into contact with the water.
The three categories of water are the following:
Clean Water: Clean water is generally water from a broken water supply line or a leaky faucet. Although the water itself is not dangerous, it can still be very damaging to your property and should be urgently extracted and dried with the help of a professional.
Gray Water: This is contaminated water that results from washing machine overflow, dishwasher overflow, or other domestic equipment. The water can contain bacteria and viruses that could potentially make you sick. It should be removed as quickly as possible to prevent water and mold damage.
Black Water: This is water that is significantly contaminated with pathogens and can cause illness if not properly handled. Black water can result from water with feces and outside floodwater that has entered your home. When dealing with black water, it is essential that you leave the task to sewage cleanup experts to ensure your health.
