Category 3 Water Damage Restoration
Category 3 water, also known as black water, is water that is grossly contaminated by pollutants including pathogens and fungi. This type of water damage causes serious health risks and should be mitigated with the utmost attention to detail and safety. Damage from sewer line breaks and backups are considered category 3 damages. Even small toilet backups fall into this category because the water from the bowl can contain unseen biological hazards. Black water and sewage backups create serious health risks that can spread rapidly throughout an affected home and cannot be cleaned by ordinary cleaning techniques.

Common Causes of Sewage Damage
Sewage damage in your home is a big deal. It;s important to be able to identify the sources of category 3 water so you know when to call for help. Simply put, sewer water is water that originates past the p-trap of a drain connected to the sewer line. Some common causes of sewer backups are:
Main Sewer Line Backups
Main drain backups usually occur when there is a clog somewhere in the main line. These clogs can be caused by anything from inappropriate materials being flushed down the toilet to tree roots blocking the line. Depending on the city's sewage system, the excess water volume can cause backups into your home or business. This will typically look like water backing up from any and all drains on the lowest level of your property.
Although a toilet overflow sometimes seems like a minor issue it still falls under the umbrella of category 3 damage. Even if the water damage was minimal, any material that was affected by the water is potentially contaminated by sewage and should be properly mitigated.
Broken Drain Pipes
Most homes and businesses have an extensive drainage system designed to send waste to the main sewer line. If any part of that system cracks or breaks, the sewage can start leaking into the home, usually seeping out from under floors and behind the walls. This can be particularly insidious because it can go unnoticed for a long time if it's a small leak. Persistent sewage smells from an undetermined source are a major sign of a broken drain pipe.
