If your sewer backs up into your home or business or you have a toilet overflow, ServiceMaster of Buncombe County can help you get the mess cleaned up quickly.
You should be familiar with the different types of water that can enter your home or business.
Clean water is generally the least hazardous type of waste water. It comes directly from taps and is generally safe for drinking and preparing food. This type of water can potentially spill out over floors and walls if a pipe bursts. Although not initially a health hazard, if left to sit, it can become contaminated by bacteria, dust, dirt and grime.
Grey water is the water that goes down your shower, sink and washer drains. It is considered to be semi-hazardous because it typically contains bacteria, dirt and food particles. If grey water spills onto your floors, it should be cleaned up as quickly as possible because it can turn into black water in less than 24 hours.
Black water is extremely dangerous and hazardous to your health because it contains raw sewage. When the sewers malfunction, this is the water that flows down your toilet drains and backs up into your home. This is considered an emergency situation that requires the help of sewage clean up professionals. This type of water contains bacteria and fecal matter and can make people sick if they come into contact with it. Cleaning up black water without proper equipment and chemicals can lead to serious illnesses and even death.
Our expert technicians have the equipment, knowledge and experience to safely and efficiently remove sewage and waste from your home or business. Our priority is your health and safety.
We will apply a four step cleanup process to sterilize the area in order to protect the health and safety of your family or employees. We will not only extract the water, but will also remove all contaminated furniture and personal items, and ventilate and dry the affected area to stop the spread of hazardous bacteria that could make people sick.
Our four step process includes:
