3 categories of water Don't leave a leak untreated! Small leaks can cause major issues

When water damage happens in your Millville home or business, call a professional water damage restoration company right away! 

At SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County, our fast response will reduce the amount of secondary damage, and calling right away can reduce the repair costs. 

When we arrive at your home or business, our trained teams will assess the damage as well as determine the equipment that will be needed. While assessing the damage, they will also be able to determine what category the water is. 

Categories of water

Category 1: This is also known as clean water. This type of water does not pose any threat to your health. It can come from a sink, toilet tank, or hose. If this is left not taken care of, it can quickly turn into category 2 or 3. 

Category 2: Or gray water. Gray water contains microorganisms that can cause you to become sick if you ingest it. Water from sump pumps, toilet bowls, dishwashers and washing machines are some common sources of gray water. 

Category 3: Black water. This category of water is highly unsanitary and can cause serious illness if not taken care of properly. Sewage backups, water from rivers, and old standing water are common sources for black water. 

It's important that you get any water damage taken care of right away! Leaving standing water can cause much more damage than you would ever want!

No matter the severity of your water damage, SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County is ready for whatever happens!
