Dirt and water damage on commercial floor. Contaminated water damage

When your home or business in Rockland County suffers from a water damage disaster, understanding what type of water you are dealing with is critical to ensuring proper cleanup. There are three types of water. Clean water is water from a broken pipe, other water source, and rainwater. The term grey water is used to describe slightly contaminated water, which is usually clean water that has been left untreated allowing bacteria and other contaminants to begin growing, making the water hazardous. Black water is highly contaminated and filled with fungi, bacteria, chemicals and more. Black water typically caused by sewage damage, flooding or any type of natural disaster. 

When you have water damage, don't leave your property to chance, and risk secondary damage. To learn more visit Water Damage Tips or call SERVPRO of Southern and Eastern Rockland County at 845-753-3730 to professionally cleanup any size water damage disaster.
