Sewage Backup

Sewage backup is not a fun problem to have. Sewage is  considered category 3 water. Did you know that there are different types of water. 

Category 1: "Clean Water"

Category 1 water is from a clean source like a broken water supply line or leaking 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.

Category 2: "Gray Water"

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.

Category 3: "Black Water"

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 stream, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

Sewage back up is considered category 3.

7/12/2021 (Permalink)

There are two different types of smoke

  1. Wet 
  2. Dry

As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Vincennes will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  1. Low heat
  2. smoldering
  3. pungent odor
  4. sticky
  5. smeary
  6. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  1. Fast burning
  2. high temperatures
  3. heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Flooded basement?

7/1/2021 (Permalink)

Do you have a basement that could flood? A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. When buying a home, most people would not know what to look for when it comes to the potential of a flooded basement. The following are some things to look for:

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

If flood water is not handled quickly and properly, it can jeopardize your health and safety, and cause severe damage to your home!

Do you know the Different Types of Water?

6/16/2021 (Permalink)

If we were in a classroom setting we would ask everyone to raise their hands if they knew if there were different types of water during a water damage. From our experience, most people wouldn't know that there are three types of water. 

Water damage can be classified by the three types of contaminated water. A SERVPRO of Vincennes professional will inspect your home or business to determine the appropriate plan of action for the type of water encountered.

Category 1: "Clean Water"

Category 1 water is from a clean source like a broken water supply line or leaking 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.

Category 2: "Gray Water"

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.

Category 3: "Black Water"

Category 3 water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and any contact should be avoided.

If you ever have any questions about different types of water give us a call today. We are happy to educate the community on what we specialize in.
