Similar to crime scenes, fecal and other matter that may occur in a home after a backup needs to be handled carefully, understanding that cleanup also needs to involved potential odor control. As a matter of fact, Sewer backups should be considered an emergency since the water may contain viruses, bacteria, and other microbes that cause serious illnesses. SERVPRO of Central Phoenix’s trained technicians know there are three types of water that they may be dealing with: clean water, grey water and black water. Grey water, considered a category 2 contaminated water, may contain bacteria and viruses. Black water, considered a category 3 contaminated water, is extremely 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. Sewer backups and similar conditions should be handled immediately. With SERVPRO’s 24-hour emergency services, consumers have a place to turn to in Phoenix.
