Call A Pro After A Category 3 (Blackwater) Loss.
When a water loss occurs, the first thing you want to do is try and get everything out of there and cleaned up, but threats lurk nearby.
Category 1 water damage doesn’t pose a threat, it’s sanitary and can be consumed by humans or animals, but it can become contaminated if it’s in contact with other surfaces.
Category 2 water is from dishwashers or washing machines or sources similar and can pose a risk.
REGULAR HOUSEHOLD PROCEDURES WON'T WORK
The regular cleanup procedures for a spill don’t apply here. A lot of sanitization and thorough cleaning is required for black water that seeps into porous materials around the place.
The longer it’s allowed to remain, the worse it can get. Even after drying the contaminants can remain unless properly disinfected.
