Grayslake residents need to know.

If your sewer system backs up, SERVPRO® of Northwest Lake County has a team of highly trained technicians on-call and ready to assist you 24-hours a day. Water from sewer system backups is grossly unsanitary and can carry dangerous bacteria and viruses that are highly infectious. Sewer water is classified as “Category 3 Black Water” and should be mitigated and restored as quickly as possible. Our technicians are trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, the nonprofit certifying body for the cleaning and restoration industry. Here is some information about black water from our website:

Category 3: “Black Water”

This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3, black water, could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

  • May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
  • Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup
