Analyzing the Source of Water Intrusion in your Spokane Home is Essential to Understanding Contamination Levels and Inputting a Cleanup Operation

Water can intrude into a home environment from a plurality of sources. Common factors across water restoration may include broken pipes, appliance malfunction, natural disasters, and structural insufficiencies. Cleanup of a water intrusion event relies on understanding the different types of contamination. 

Performing water cleanup in your Spokane home is a duty that requires unique expertise and training. There are three broad types of water contamination: clean water, gray water, and black water. Blackwater is the most severe type of water contamination and can be harmful to your health. 

  • Carpet and carpet pads are frequently cleanable in clean and gray water emergencies, reducing claims expense.
  • Blackwater contains biological hazards, which means any porous materials exposed to this type of water need replacing.
  • Expensive textiles may have some cleanability following black water exposure by using a biocide and several cleans. However, these items must be confirmed sanitary by an Indoor Environmental Specialist.

Avoid water contamination problems in your home. Contact SERVPRO of Northeast Spokane for water cleanup at (509) 474-9144.
