Sewage Cleanup and Restoration
Water from sewer system backups is considered Black Water. Sewage is a biohazard, is grossly unsanitary, and may contain bacteria and viruses that can cause illness. Special training and equipment are necessary to safely clean this type of biohazard.
If your water damage is from a toilet overflowing with sewage, we will properly restore your property to a safe condition. After the sewage cleanup is finished, we will focus on odor removal to ensure you’re comfortable in that space again.

There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of Richardson 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
