Dealing With Water Cleanup in Pearl River
Having a toilet overflow from your bathroom into other areas of your home requires specific cleanup precautions. You cannot assume that water coming from a toilet is clean water. Even water without any solid matter coming from a toilet, it is still gray water (category 2). If there is waste or sewage backup, the water is considered black water (category 3) and is unsanitary and possibly disease-carrying. If untreated, you may face health risks from the wastewater.
If you need gray or black water cleanup in your Pearl River home, the trained professionals at SERVPRO understand how to effectively clean and sanitize impacted areas so that you do not have to worry about potential illness or disease. Not only do they use industrial-grade specially formulated cleaners, but they also use OSHA compliant personal protective equipment when cleaning contaminated water. This includes respirators, splash goggles, gloves, and even full-body suits when necessary.
When clearing wastewater using specialized extraction equipment, technicians usually dispose of it in a sewer line depending on local and state ordinances. If no sewer line is available, technicians dump the water at a licensed wastewater treatment facility. Improper disposal not only exposes other members of the community to unsanitary water, but there may be significant penalties from environmental agencies.
SERVPRO focuses on the water damage cleanup, so you do not have to deal with contaminants by creating an individualized plan for your particular situation. Technicians use disinfectants that kill about 99% of the organisms found in gray and black water. They also use biocides and fungicides before and after the work to ensure a clean environment.
The goal is always restoration rather than replacement; however, in some cases, removal and replacement may be required. For a semi-minor toilet spill, technicians use source containment by removing contaminated materials such as unsalvageable carpet by wrapping them up in polyethylene or putting them in plastic bags. If needed, technicians test the impacted environment to ensure that there are normal levels of indoor organisms.
