Sewage Cleanup and Restoration

When heavy rain and severe storms caused sewage backup at a medical clinic in Omaha, NE; they needed expert help fast.  Their lower level was flooded with over three feet of contaminated water and the excessive humidity in the building was beginning to cause secondary damage throughout the business.  The experienced team at SERVPRO of Sarpy County arrived on site within the hour and began to extract the water and dehumidify the property.  Once the water was extracted, our crews removed the contaminated material and cleaned and sanitized the entire property.  Due to the fast response and expertise of SERVPRO of Sarpy County, the clinic was operational less than one week after the disaster.

There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of Downtown Omaha, Sarpy County and Omaha East 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
