Your Water Damage Cleanup Experts in South Orange County
Water can cause a host of problems for the occupants of a home or office. And any number of things can trigger a water disaster. A clog in the pipes can lead to a leak or a burst. Flood water can quickly push itself where it’s not welcome and rain water can slowly turn a small hole in the roof into a waterfall. Depending on the extent of the damage, residents or employees may be required to vacate the premises. This can not only be a huge inconvenience but can cost time and money. Oso Emergency Services is here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help clean up the mess and get you back on your feet.
What is the extent of water damage?
The water itself can cause a number of problems just by itself. Furniture can be damaged by warping and porous materials can become stained. Carpets become soaked and begin to smell while paint may bubble, wallpaper may peel, and beautiful wooden floors swell. The longer water sits, the more time and money will be needed to repair or replace the damage it causes. Water damage also brings with it health risks, such as the accumulation of mold and the spread of bacteria. It’s important to clean up water damage as quickly and thoroughly as possible.

Types of Water Damage
There are three main grades of water damage: Clean water, Gray water, and Black water. Each presents a home or business with challenges, though some are worse than others. And all types can lead to the growth of mold or mildew.
- Clean Water: This water is typically safe if it comes into contact with humans or animals. Clean water may come from a leak in a water supply pipe in the walls, an overflowing sink or bathtub, or a sprinkler system. This type of water can cause damage to your home or office but can often be restored with greater ease than from other water types.
- Gray Water: This water often is contaminated with some kind of material that could be toxic to humans. This type of water often come from places like a washing machine leak, leaks from the toilet, or clean water that has been left standing for a short time. In addition to the physical damage that this water can cause, illness and infection are also possible.
- Black Water: This water is considered significantly unhygienic and often contains dangerous microbes, bacteria, viruses, and more. Sewage spills, unclean rivers and streams, and gray water that has been left standing are the typical sources of this black water. This unsanitary water should be cleaned by trained professional as it can contain very harmful contaminants.
