Sewage Cleanup and Restoration

Sewage & Biohazard Cleaning

You may experience your toilet backing up, dirty water getting onto the floors and wicking up your walls, or maybe you smell an unpleasant odor that seems to be coming from under your house. You call the plumber, only to discover you have compromised sewage pipes, and before he can fix it, he needs the crawl space cleaned and disinfected. We are here to help clean areas for plumbers and clean, disinfect, and dry sewage backup in your home. We protect the assets in your home. Our process prevents mold growth and dry rot, so you can feel at ease when our work is complete.

There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties will inspect that contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response to safely restore your home or business.

The three types of contaminated water:

Category 1: "Clean Water"

This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.

  • Water from a clean source like a broken water line
  • If left untreated, can degrade into category 2 or 3

Category 2: "Gray Water"

This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

  • May contain bacteria and viruses
  • Can quickly degrade into category 3 if left untreated

Category 3: "Black Water"

This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3 water could 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.

  • May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
  • Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup
