Sewage Backup Cleanup Cardiff
What are the Categories of Water?
Sewage backup cleanup is the process of cleaning up unsanitary category 2 or category 3 water after a sewer line is damaged, crushed, blocked, or clogged. When sewage backup occurs, sewage water is forced up through your property’s plumbing and into your home. Once this happens all bets are off.
According to our sewage backup cleanup Cardiff team, there are 3 categories of water:
- Category 1 – “Clean water” that doesn’t pose a huge health risk to humans
- Category 2 – “Gray water” that is toxic due to chemicals like dishwasher water
- Category 3 – “Black water” that poses a large health risk due to large amounts of bacteria, fungus or microbes that are extremely harmful to human consumption
All 3 categories are serious, but categories 2 and 3 water problems if not immediately remediated can cause major health and structural integrity issues for you, your health, and your home.
