When Nasty Happens...
Water damage in your building is bad. Toilet overflows, sewage backups and other intrusions are more than nasty, smelly messes; these bio-hazardous damages can bring with them harmful microorganisms as well as moisture that can ultimately lead to mold growth.
Building occupants should exercise precautionary and safety measures during times of "black water" invasions.

- They should wash their hands thoroughly after coming in contact with anything that might be contaminated.
