What Is Black Water?
A flood can cause water to build up in a house, bringing in disgusting and dangerous contaminants. This indoor flood water can be incredibly unsanitary and if filthy enough, this water is known as black water. This water should be immediately removed from a home in order to protect both the home itself and the residents inside.
To schedule a clean-up crew to remove dirty water from your house, contact the Austin water extraction technicians at WOW Total Cleaning by calling 512-291-0048 today.
Contaminants in Black Water
The hazards present in water will vary based on where the water came from. After all, a leak in a bathtub or faucet’s plumbing will produce relative clean water that makes more of a mess than poses an environmental hazard. However, flood waters and sewage leaks can create extremely unhealthy conditions that should be kept out of any home. Black water may contain the following contaminants:
- Massive amounts of bacteria
- River water
These contaminants can bring in rot and mold, and present a considerable environmental danger on their own. A water extraction and cleaning technician can work to remove the black water from your home and provide a full cleaning service to get rid of any remaining contaminants.
If your house has been flooded, our water extraction technicians can restore your home to its former cleanliness. To learn more about our services and how we can help you today, contact the Austin water extraction experts at WOW Total Cleaning at 512-291-0048.
- Extremely professional company! The crew did a phenomenal job today on our ceramic tile floor, getting rid of the wax, steaming, and polishing the floors! It was a long job but they left our floors immaculate! The front desk, Ivy, gave us updates on when they would arrive and communicated with us on any changes in their schedule. I highly recommend this company, and we will definitely use them again!!!
- We just had our tile flooring thoroughly stripped and cleaned. They did an amazing job and me and my husband are very pleased. They worked very hard and took almost no breaks. They arrived on time and the staff were extremely professional, respectful, and pleasant. I wish we knew about them before. We would have used them yearly. I highly recommend their service. They are a bit pricey but well worth every dime as they will leave your house immaculate. We will recommend them to all our neighborhood. It is rare to get such stellar service. We look forward to using them soon.
- I called Wow Total Cleaning's Emergency Hotline and the owner Gustavo immediately picked up. It wasn't some calling center that I had to wait for, it was a direct line to his cell phone which I really appreciated. They offered to come immediately in the middle of the night, but I was working with the insurance claims and so we started first thing the next morning.
- While on a 3 week vacation we had WOW come to our 4200 SQFT house and what can I say.............INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!! Even the Schmootz in the corners that accumulates was REMOVED! Every Horizontal surface was SPIC AND SPAN!!!! Floors polished....Blinds cleaned...Ceiling fans cleaned...and even the windows(INSIDE AND OUT)...They were ...ON TIME...PROFESSIONAL and they did an EXCEPTIONAL JOB!!!!!!!.....VERY REASONABLY PRICED as WELL.

- They did a fantastic job and were very professional. You could tell that they did it (and did it well) because they actually cared about helping more that just the money. They answered all our calls and were quick to get there after we first called them. Our house flooded, and they were quick and compassionate in their work to extract the water and take out damaged carpet and ceiling. I definitely recommend them.
