The Longer You Wait…The Worse It Gets!

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.


It’s Not All Bad!

If caught in time, items like carpet, furniture and certain belongings can be salvaged when exposed to Category 1 Water!
Just another reason to act quickly when flooding or seepage starts!
