Sewage spills are not just nasty to deal with, but they are a health risk as well. Sewage is what is known as black water and is toxic. This type of water can come from sewer back-up, broken waste pipes, toilets overflowing, or storm flooding. Contaminants in the water can cause harm to anyone who comes in contact with it. That is why if you have sewage spills, Hometown Restoration provides sewage cleanup in Carlsbad with the required PPE and equipment.
Category 3 Water
Black water is labeled a category 3 water. There are three types of water we deal with:
- Category 1 – Clean Water – this is water that is potable such as tap water.
- Category 2 – Gray Water – this is water from sources such as dishwashers or washing machines. Not clean but not toxic.
- Category 3 – Black Water – Highly contaminated water. Clean and gray can become black if left to sit long enough.
Contaminants in the water can include bacteria, viruses, dirt, debris, and even medical waste and chemicals. Homeowners should never attempt to clean up sewage waste on their own. Hometown Restoration has qualified technicians and the proper protective gear to do the job right. We also provide the appropriate disposal of the sewage.
