Water damage can be categorized by the 3 different types of contaminated water. Saviour Septic, LLC will examine your home or business premises in order to determine the proper plan of action for the type of water found.
Having a broken water supply line or a leaky faucet can cause a buildup of what we call “Clean Water”. Yes, it is clean, however, if this type of water sits and is not treated, it water can turn into “Gray Water” or “Black Water”, dependent upon how long it sits, the temperature, and/or interaction with contaminants.
“Gray Water” is contaminated and may potentially cause sickness. “Gray Water” could come from an overflow of the washing machine, an overflow of the toilet, or an overflow of the dishwasher. This type of water can hold bacteria and viruses and could rapidly worsen into “Black Water” if gone untreated.
“Black Water” is completely contaminated and may cause severe illness, or even death. Any exchange with “Black Water” should be avoided. Flooding rivers/streams can contain “Black Water”. Also, water from outside the toilet trap, water from the toilet which has feces, or standing water that has begun to support bacterial growth.
