When you call us about water damage restoration, we are going to want to know what kind of water we are dealing with if possible. Here are the three types of water that could damage your home or business:
- Clean water: If the water is rainwater coming in through a roof leaf, water from a leaky pipe or some sort of condensation, it is considered clean water. This means that it is less likely to have dangerous pathogens.
- Grey water: If the water is coming from appliances like your washing machine, your dishwasher or a clean toilet, it is considered grey water.
- Black water: If the water could contain sewage or is coming from a significant flood of a river or creek, it is called black water. We will need to use special equipment and procedures to handle this type of water damage restoration.
