Biohazard Saco, ME
These before and after photos show a sewage loss. Sewer system back ups are always to be considered very dangerous. Our SERVPRO crew is specially trained to safely clean the contamination.
Here are the examples of the different types/levels of a water damage that are set by IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification).
• Category 1. This is liquid from a clean and sanitary source, such as faucets, toilet tanks, drinking fountains, etc. But, category one can quickly degrade into category two.
• Category 2. This category of liquid used to be called grey water, and is described as having a level of contaminates that may cause illness or discomfort if ingested. Sources include dishwasher or washing machine overflows, flush from sink drains, and toilet overflow with some urine but not feces.
• Category 3. This is the worst classification and is grossly unsanitary. It could cause severe illness or death if ingested. It used to be called black water, and sources include sewer backup, flooding from rivers or streams, toilet overflow with feces, and stagnant liquid that has begun to support bacterial growth.
