Sewer and sewage backups should be considered an emergency because the water contains bacteria, contaminants, biohazards, and other microbes that can cause serious illnesses. Our crews break down sewage water into three categories depending on the contaminants involved: clean water, gray water, & black water. We treat each classification separately.

Category 1 water is from a clean source like a broken water supply line or a leaky faucet. If not treated quickly, this water can turn into category 2 or 3, depending on the length of time, temperature, and contact with surrounding contaminants.

  • Clean water at the releasing source
  • Water will degrade to Cat #2 or Cat #3 with prolonged time / elevated temperatures

Category 2 water is contaminated and could cause discomfort or illness. Examples include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

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

Category 3 water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and 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.

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