Although most people do not consider sewer backups to be emergencies, they are due to the water potentially containing viruses, bacteria and other microbes that can cause serious illnesses. Clear Coast Restoration has specialized trained professionals and equipment to quickly and efficiently clean contaminants like sewage.
Water damage can be classified by three types of contaminated water. Clear Coast Restoration will thoroughly inspect your home or business to determine the best plan of action for the type of water that is encountered.
Category 1 water is from a clean source like a broken water supply line or leaking faucet. If not treated quickly, this water can turn into category two or three, depending on length of time, temperature and contact with surrounding contaminants.
Category 2 water is contaminated and could cause discomfort or illness. Examples include washing machine overflow, toilet overflow with some urine but no feces or dishwasher overflow.
Category 3 water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested. Any contact should be avoided. Examples include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.
