Water Damage Understanding Water Types in Grand Traverse Area Do you know what type of water this is?

When your home or business suffers a water damage, 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, or other water source; rainwater is also considered clean.  The term gray water is used to classify slightly contaminated water.  Clean water becomes gray water when it is left untreated allowing bacteria and other contaminates to begin growing, make the water hazardous.  Black water is highly contaminated and filled with fungi, bacteria, chemicals and more.  Black water is typically caused by sewage damage, flooding or any type of natural disaster.  Black water should always be handled by trained professions.  When you have a water damage, don't leave your property to chance.  Call SERVPRO of Grand Traverse Area to handle the cleanup.
