Types of Water Damage in St. Louis
All water is not the same! That means not all water losses are the same also. You can’t trust your eyes to tell the difference regarding clean verses contaminated water. The Flood Team can help determine the type of water damage you’re facing, and the appropriate steps to take of it. There are three categories of water.The categories are determined not by the actual color of the water itself, but by the amount of contamination and the length of time that has passed since the damage occurred.
You also must consider where the water came from. That plays a major factor in the amount of contamination that could potentially be in the water. For example; A facet that has overflowed the sink and ran on the floor for several minutes will be categorized differently than water that has came out of a sanitary sewer drain because they drain carries feces and other waste that could pose harm to people if ingested or exposed.
