Dirty water and Drying Methods
What is Dirty Water?
Before starting the water cleanup process and using any type of drying method in a flooded home, the restoration company will first determine if the water is dirty or clean. Dirty water is any type of water with contaminants. A good example of dirty water is the water in a home or the water in a business seen after a supply line break. With a supply line break, that water can mix with sewage and run off from the sewer lines.
Working with restoration and mitigation professionals is especially important when doing dirty water cleanup because the drying methods used on other jobs are potentially dangerous. The fans usually used to reduce the effects of water damage can spread the dirty water around the house or business and damage other parts of the building. Those fans can also allow mold spores to spread faster than they otherwise would. Water cleanup professionals will use other drying methods to dry items in the building.
