SEWAGE BACKUPS CAN BE CAUSED BY FLOODING RAINS

9/17/2021 (Permalink)

Sewage Cleanup and Restoration after Storms

Flooding rains can cause substantial damage, but most do not consider the potential of sewage backup and its resulting damage.  Sewer system backups are extremely dangerous because of the unsanitary nature of the water, which may contain bacteria and viruses.  Bacteria can cause serious illnesses requiring specialized equipment to properly clean this contamination.

Sewage Backup and Contaminated Water

Sewage backup produces contaminated water, which requires proper training and equipment.  SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County / Greenville is the company you can trust and will inspect the contaminated water and plan the appropriate action to safely restore your home or business.  

It is important you, as a home or business owner, understand the different types of contaminated water:

Category 1: “Clean Water”

This water is from a clean source. It can either be a broken water line or faucet; it should not be left untreated. If the issue isn’t resolved the water can degrade to category 2 or 3 based on factors such as time, temperature, and contact with contaminates.

Water from a broken water pipe, that is not attended to quickly can degrade into Category 2 or 3 water contamination.

Category 2: “Gray Water”

Gray water has a significant amount of contamination that may cause illness or discomfort if ingested. Category 2 may include washing machine overflow, dishwashing machine overflow, or urine from toilet overflow (no feces).

Gray water can possibly contain bacteria and viruses and can degrade into Category 3.

Category 3: “Black Water”

Black water is unsanitary and the most dangerous because it can contain untreated sewage, strong chemicals, and microbes, which have the potential to cause serious illness or death. Category 3 may include water from flooding rivers, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl (with feces), and from standing water that has microbial growth.

The Severity of Water Damage

Severe damage from water can happen in seconds and increases in severity every minute.  Situations like this require experienced water restoration experts.  If not discovered early, smaller, less visible leaks can do a lot of damage.  Princeton residential and commercial property owners should contact SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville as soon as possible when dripping or accumulating water is discovered, which is especially important when discovered in an area where water is not normally seen. The remediation process, in Princeton, begins with an assessment and estimate.  The process continues through the entire process, from mitigation to restoration.

What Is Water Damage Restoration in Princeton

The water restoration process, or remediation, is described as the extraction of standing water, cleaning of the distressed area, and either drying or removing water-soaked building materials and contents.  Building materials, if damp, may require removal.  The level of damage does not affect the necessary steps in the water restoration process.  Water restoration begins with the assistance of trained professionals engaged in the protection against mold and other water-related damage.  Our team of professionals has unfettered access to pumps for extracting large amounts of water and debris, as well as a full range of exceptional cleaning and drying equipment.

Common Damage Caused by Water

Princeton homes or businesses finding themselves in a situation necessitating water restoration service, need to know the primary causes of water damage.  The primary three common causes of water damage include damaged roofing, faulty plumbing fixtures, or broken appliances.  Damaged roofing could be the result of hail or high winds, in Princeton, which is quite common during the spring.  Water damage severity has been broken down into three categories defined by the level of contamination.

  • Category One: water damage results when clean water leaks from a broken pipe or supply line.
  • Category Two: damage involves contaminated, non-potable gray water from a broken appliance, bath, shower, toilet, or a roof that may contain chemicals and microbes.
  • Category Three: incidents involve highly contaminated floodwater or sewer backups that may contain solid waste.

How to Tell if You Need Princeton Water Damage Restoration?

Have you spotted pooling or puddling water?  Pooling or puddling water is a visible sign of ongoing water damage.  Is there the smell of a musty odor?  This smell may suggest a hidden structural leak is causing mold to flourish behind walls. This is precisely why water damage has the potential to be dangerous. 

Standing water presents health and safety risks.  The immediate threat by standing water is the potential risk of slip and fall.  Not to say the least, if it is not discovered right away, it can be the ideal environment for potentially harmful bacteria and fungi to multiply and spread.  These safety reasons are why hiring SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville is extremely important.

Princeton Water Damage Restoration

After discussing the negatives of water damage and why Princeton water restoration is necessary, what precautions, as a home or business owner, can you take?

  • Be aware of the age of plumbing and the materials. Perform regular inspections of pipes and appliances
  • Check the condition of your roof after high winds or storms
