The Three Types of Flood Water

The Three Types of Flood Water

  • Clean Water: Natural water, such as rain or tap water, that poses no additional health risks.
  • Gray Water: Water that may contain additional chemicals, such as discharge from a washing machine.
  • Black Water: Sewage or groundwater from nearby sources that may pose extreme health risks.

Even if the water appears clean, it might contain chemicals or bacteria that could be hazardous to your health. Wear waders or rain boots, rubber gloves and any other available protective equipment to avoid unnecessary contact with your skin.

Contact Your Insurance Company

We recommend initiating your flood insurance claim as early as possible to minimize claim delays and to help get repairs completed sooner. This is especially important if your damage is the result of regional flooding, in which case hundreds of other homes could be affected, and your insurance company will quickly become inundated with claims.
