As we’ve discussed before, there are 3 Categories of Water when referring to flooding.
If a flooding situation isn’t dealt with immediately, Category 1 Water will change to Category 2. It takes only 48-72 hours for your situation to go from bad to worse and only 48 hours for Category 2 Water to change to Category 3!
What’s In Your Sewage Water?
Category 3 Water is considered to be grossly contaminated sewage water and can contain the following commonly found viruses:
- Rota Viruses;
- Hepatitis A;
- Adenovirus and;
- Gestural Intestinal Virus.
