Differences between Black Water and Grey Water damage.

7/6/2021 (Permalink)

Both grey water and black water are types of wastewater. It’s just that grey water is the result of water being used for household purposes, like cleaning and washing clothes, while black water contains feces and urine and other bodily wastes. Grey water can be easily recycled as doesn’t contain that much bacteria compared to black water. Black water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and any contact should be avoided. Grey water and black water are also treated differently. Black water needs a more intensive treatment to kill the disease carrying bacteria present. Grey water can quickly degrade into black water if left untreated. If left untreated, mold can develop and create health effects above and beyond just the contaminated water!
