Has your Toilet Overflowed?

3/4/2021 (Permalink)

We've all been there..overflowing toilet..what now?

Most people can clean up the mess before there is any damage. But what if you don't realized your toilet overflowed and you come home after eight hours of work to find a huge mess? 

Call SERVPRO of Vincennes (812)-895-0581 Here is what we will explain to you below:

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.
