Sewage Cleanup and Restoration During a Storm

10/26/2017 (Permalink)

Nobody likes to deal with it, but somebody must do it!

During a storm, there is a lot of chaos. Many people may not realize that walking through flood waters is actually very dangerous. Not only can you get washed away, but you can also become exposed to harmful bacteria due to sewage and otherwise contaminated water.

Three types of contaminated water

Category 1 is Clean Water, which you don’t necessarily want to drink, but it comes from a clean source.

Category 2 is Gray Water, which means it has a significant amount of contaminants.

Category 3 is Black Water, which is contaminated and can cause health effects.

Do you trust yourself or a non-expert enough to put your life or family’s lives on the line because you don’t want to report the loss to insurance, or deal with it at all?

Water during a major flood is flowing from place to place and may be picking up disgusting stuff along the way. It could be tapping the sewage drains in the streets, and then take itself into your home if your home is close enough to the ground.
