Having a flood in Westminster, CO is bad enough, but when the floodwater has contaminants in it, it’s even worse. This kind of flooding is called black water, and it can cause serious damage to your home, facility, or building. Many factors can contribute to the unwelcome appearance of black water including sewage backflows, floods from streams or rivers, or any other time that water exposed to organic elements enters a building. Remediating black water contamination and flood damage should never be done by someone inexperienced in water damage restoration. A water damage restoration professional knows how to accurately assess the flood damage, sanitize the area, and restore the building.
