Understanding what type of water you are dealing with is critical.  

Clean water is water from a broken pipe, or other water source: rainwater is also considered clean.  Gray water is slightly contaminated water;clean water becomes gray water when it is left untreated.  Black water is highly contaminated  and filled with fungi, bacteria, and chemicals. Black water is usually caused by sewage damage, flooding or any type of natural disaster.  Black water should ALWAYS be handled by a trained professional.  

Make sure if you have a water damage to:

Shut off the water source if possible

Turn off the circuit breakers, to prevent electrical shock

Remove excess water by mopping and blotting

Remove and prop up wet upholstery cushions

Move any paintings, art, computers, documents, and other items of value to a safe place

Don't use your household vacuum cleaner since there is potential for electrical shock
