Water Damage Restoration
24-Hour Emergency Fire & Water Damage Restoration Services in Santa Cruz & Surrounding Areas
Water can have devastating consequences if not treated quickly and properly, not only to your home, but to your furnishings as well. Typical causes of water damage include fire, weather and burst pipes. Damage will occur if the water is not quickly and properly extracted and the salvageable property thoroughly dried and disinfected. Water spreads rapidly and can quickly result in costly damages.
Sewage, Gray Water & Storm Water Damage
Unlike simple water damage, sewage and gray water damage is often hazardous. Raw sewage contains bacteria and other microorganisms that can cause serious health issues because they are not only solid waste but also airborne and can be inhaled and/or ingested. If left untreated, it is possible for the bacteria to be transmitted throughout a home or business by simple contact with clothing or shoes.
While most would recognize sewage from its odor or appearance, the reality is that contamination can be very diluted, have little or no odor, and appear to be fresh water. The IICRC has published a definitive guide that categorizes black or unsanitary water as any water that has entered a building from an outside source. This could include a drain, toilet, floodwater or any water that may have been in contact with soil or any other possibly contaminated surface.
