Water Damage can happen any day of the week, anytime of day. Knowing what type of water has invaded your home or business is essential to a safe and speedy clean-up and restoration process. 

There are three types of water: Clean water, Grey water, and Black water. Clean water comes from a water pipe or even rain water. Grey water is slightly contaminated. It happens when clean water is left untreated allowing bacteria to grow. Black water is highly contaminated and filled with fungi, bacteria and chemicals and is often sewage water. It is extremely important to avoid all contact with Black water. Do not walk through contaminated areas. Do not turn on HVAC system or fans when Black water is present, to avoid spreading contaminants through the air. 

SERVPRO of Dover/Middletown has the knowledge and experience to deal with any type of water damage. SERVPRO will determine what type of water damage has taken place and safely extract excess water before beginning the drying process.
