Black water is a categorization of standing water. It is water filled with potential contaminants, such as biohazardous materials, sewage, and petroleum gas. Here at SERVPRO, our highly trained technicians know exactly how to combat black water.
Once we arrive at your home, our SERVPRO technicians can get to work straight away. Due to the sheer volume of black water, we must remove it to inspect the damages to your floors, furniture, and walls.

Once the water has been removed, we can investigate and begin to take inventory.
Due to the nature of black water, anything carpeted or upholstered cannot be clean, as it cannot be guaranteed safe. All affected carpets and fabrics must be thrown away, but SERVPRO can help you make an insurance claim. Once belongings are removed, we can focus on demolishing the damaged materials inside.
Our water damage restoration technicians can make flood cuts to drywall and remove any affected flooring. Afterward, before a rebuild, our technicians can set up ozone machines inside of your emptied home to combat the foul smell the black water brought into your home. Once finished, we can leave your home to you, as if the flood never occurred.
