Sewage Water Damage Remediation in Fort Worth

Sewage is considered a Category 3 Water Damage, which poses a serious health threat to human life.  This type of water removal should be done with an elevated level of care.

  • Applying disinfectant to all affected areas before and after water removal. 
  • Removing all water, which may include needing to remove carpet and pad. 
  • Removing rugs, furniture, and other contents on the floor.  
  • All items that can be sanitized will be cleaned in another location.

Can a Carpet with Sewage Be Restored?

A carpet cannot be restored after its been in sewage water.  In this situation, both the carpet and the pad will have to be lifted and disposed of.  

If your water damage restoration is being filed as an insurance claim, a report will be sent to your insurance adjuster so they can approve a replacement.  After approval, our reconstruction team will replace your carpet.

There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of North Richland Hills will inspect that contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response to safely restore your home or business.

The three types of contaminated water:

Category 1: "Clean Water"

This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.

  • Water from a clean source like a broken water line
  • If left untreated, can degrade into category 2 or 3

Category 2: "Gray Water"

This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

  • May contain bacteria and viruses
  • Can quickly degrade into category 3 if left untreated

Category 3: "Black Water"

This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3 water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

  • May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
  • Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup
