Sewage Cleanup and Restoration
The last thing you want to deal with is sewage backup. But unfortunately, pipes can get clogged or broken, and you may find yourself in a sticky, smelly situation. If your sewage is in a place it’s not supposed to be, turn to SERVPRO of Eaton County.
Sewage backup can involve three different types of contaminated water; you may be facing clean water, gray water, or black water. Clean water floods may mostly involve careful water removal, but gray water and black water, especially, pose health risks as they can introduce bacteria and viruses.
Each type of sewage backup has different concerns and handling procedures, but at SERVPRO of Eaton County, we’re equipped to handle all three. We’ll help you remove the contaminated water as quickly as possible to prevent damage to your home or business. We’ll also carefully sanitize all the contaminated areas so everyone in your home or office building can go about their day safely.

There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of Eaton County, SERVPRO of Clinton & Gratiot Counties and SERVPRO of Lansing & Holt 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
