Understanding Water Types in Alamo Heights, TX

When your home or business suffers a water damage, understanding what type of water you are dealing with is critical to ensuring proper cleanup.


There are three types of water.  Clean water is from a broken pipe, or other water source.  The term gray water is used to classify slightly contaminated water.  Clean water becomes gray water when it is left untreated allowing bacteria & other contaminants to begin growing, making the water hazardous.  Black water is highly contaminated & filled with fungi, bacteria, chemicals & more.  Black water is typically caused by sewage damage, flooding or any type of natural disaster.  Black water should always be handled by trained professionals such as your local SERVPRO of Alamo Heights professionals.  We are here to serve our Alamo Heights community day or night every day of the year at
