Blackwater is commonly found when flood damage affects Morristown residents. Blackwater is when a water supply contains high-level contaminants and is normal when the water has appeared from outside the home, such as in a flood. Clean water emergencies are usually restricted to pipe bursts or leaks. When dealing with blackwater, professionals need to follow legally enforced rules to return home safely before inhabitants return. Sanitizing a home can involve cleaning with disinfectants but commonly also consists of removing and disposing of affected materials.
- A building framework is usually salvageable following a blackwater emergency and can be sand-blasted or disinfected using truck-mounted spray equipment.
- Pressure washing for either the exterior or interior of the house can help quickly remove dirt, sludge, and grime from affected areas of the home.
- It is usual for parts of the building assembly, such as plaster, to be completely removed and replaced if exposed to blackwater during a flood.
