Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Identifying Your Water or Storm Damage

3/15/2022 (Permalink)

When your Cecil County property suffers a storm damage event, it is critical to identify the type of stormwater involved.  This will help you to determine the proper restoration techniques to use in order to maintain your health and safety.  SERVPRO of Cecil County completes water and storm restoration services based on the type of water associated with the loss:

Clean Water

Water from rainfall or a broken pipe is considered clean water.  This is safe to those inside the property.

Gray Water

Stormwater can grow bacteria and become a health concern as it is left untreated.

Black Water

Water that is filled with bacteria, chemicals or other dangerous contaminants can pose a large health concern.  This type of damage should only be handled by a certified professional.  Sewage is one such example of substantially harmful water.

Should you suffer stormwater damage, you should always hire a restoration professional to handle the loss for you.  SERVPRO of Cecil County handles large and small stormwater disasters for our local Elkton community utilizing our advanced techniques and equipment.  We follow the proper restoration and health guidelines as outlined by organizations such as OSHA and the IICRC.
