Sewage Cleanup and Restoration

Shakopee, Savage & Prior Lake Sewer Damage Clean Up 

If your home or business has been damaged by sewer water it is critical that it is cleaned up quickly and properly.  Sewer water typically enters a home or business due to a drain back up at the home or at the street level.  It can also come in from a toilet overflow.  This water is considered "Category 3" water which means it is highly contaminated with potentially harmful bacteria and viruses.

There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of Shakopee / Savage / Prior Lake 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
