Water Losses

9/19/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville understands the need for immediate restoration services when your place of business has a major water loss. Not only does the water need to be extracted, but a professional should evaluate what kind of water made its way into and onto the carpet/flooring.

There are three categories of water when working in the restoration industry. First, we have category 1 - this will be clean water most likely coming from a toilet tank, sink, or refrigerator. The water will not contain contaminants and it will mostly likely not cause any kind of sickness if ingested. Category 2 water losses are typically from washing machines, dish washers, and any loss that may have been going on for over a week. Not many people know that soap is in fact a contaminant. Last but not least, we have category 3. This will include any kind of sewage loss that may occur in a business. Sewage is obviously something that will make you very sick if ingested due to all of the bacteria and viruses that run through our sewer system. If you do have a sewage loss, please call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville right away, and we will be there as soon as possible to clean up the mess. Please avoid cleaning sewage yourself as it is very harmful and without the proper personal protective equipment, it can cause major illness or even death.

Call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville for any and all of your emergency restoration needs. We are just a phone call away from making it "Like it never even happened!"
