Black and Grey Water Cleanup in NASHVILLE, TN

Contact Us

    Flood water damage can strike at any time. No one has no control over natural disasters. Hence, precautionary measures and mitigation are critical preparedness steps.
    Broadly, there are two types of water damage: black water damage and gray water damage.
    Black water damage usually stems from raw sewage backup or flooding of the groundwater systems. Even the flooding of houses due to overflowing river streams, seawater, or ocean water is considered a potential source of black water damage. Therefore, black water damage doesn’t necessarily contain black water, it is simply a classification denoting the risk level of the water.
    Gray water damage occurs due to slump pump failure, a malfunctioning washing machine or dishwasher, and an overflowing toilet (without feces). So basically, gray water is water that is less harmful than black water.
    Regardless of the color of the water, both can be dangerous and displeasing. This is where our services at TN Flood Kings can be of help.
    TN Flood Kings brings to you black water cleanup and gray water cleanup services that can help remove the standing black or gray water from your house quickly and effectively.

      If You Have Standing Grey Or Black Water From Flooding, Contact TN Flood Kings

      Black water damage is the worst of all. Black water is contaminated water that contains human and sewage waste. It can cause severe health risks, both biological and chemical hazards that are difficult to deal with. For instance, E. coli and campylobacter can both cause serious damage to your digestive system. Inhaling black water odor can make you fall ill, too.
      But in no way does that mean that gray water is less dangerous than black water. Both are equally devastating and dangerous.
      Standing gray or black water from flooding can invite various other problems. Some of them are-
      • Damage to electrical appliances like washing machines, refrigerators, and geysers.
      • Damage to wooden furniture, flooring, baseboards, and more.
      • Salvage carpets, tiles, and flooring of the house.
      • Mold growth
      • Chipping or bubbling of plaster on walls.
      • Staining of walls.
      • Fire due to damage to electrical systems.

      Thus, prolonged or extensive black and gray water damage can shake the structural foundation of the house and bring down your property value. It is both mentally and financially crippling.

      Now that you know how standing gray or black water can be dangerous, it’s crucial to act immediately once you’re hit by water damage. Remember, the more you delay, the more health and financial risks are involved.

      Our Water Damage Restoration Process

      At TN Flood Kings, we follow a step-by-step approach to water damage restoration.

      Our cleaners visit your home and take a quick walkthrough of the entire site to identify the areas affected by flood damage and the extent of the damage. They check for mold growth on walls, absorption of water by carpets and wooden furniture, as well as closely inspect for broken and burst pipes, fecal contamination, and other such damages.

      Our specialist also identifies the natural source of black and gray water damage to ensure that water doesn’t keep flowing.

      They then categorize the water damage into three categories. These are clean water damage, gray water damage, and black water damage. 

      This is the initial step of our restoration process. It gives our specialists an idea about how to proceed with the process and helps them plan and strategize. After the assessment, they give a fair idea of the time required for cleaning as well as the restoration fee that will be charged.

      The next step of the restoration process is water removal. Standing water can continue to damage your property. It can damage the electrical system of the house, which can lead to a fire. Standing water can weaken grout lines and floors and ultimately affect the structural integrity of the house. The longer the water stands in the house, the worse the outcomes are.

      We use water removers like submersible pumps, truck-mounted vacuums, and portable wet/dry vacuums to draw out the water.

      Despite water removal, moisture may still prevail in the house. The damp walls, wet carpets, and swollen wooden furniture can aggravate the problems further. For instance, mold growth can spread all across the walls, the plaster of the ceiling may start to bubble, the hardwood flooring might buckle, and the smell that lingers even after water removal may make you feel nauseated. Thus, drying and dehumidifying are very crucial.

      At TN Flood Kings, we use industrially graded drying and dehumidifying equipment. The large fans dry out the entire house quickly and effectively. Our professionals use moisture detectors to measure the moisture content in the house before and after the drying and dehumidifying process.

      Once the property has been dehumidified, it’s important to now disinfect it to kill the harmful pathogens that may crawl on different surfaces (even on your body). This part of the process involves sanitizing the entire house to pin down all the bacteria and viruses.
      The final step of the restoration process is the actual restoration itself. During this stage, our specialists strive to restore your house to the condition it was in before your property was struck by a flood.
