Water Damage Categories
Category 1 water damage is caused by something that isn't a hazard for humans. Usually, this is generated from water supply lines from household objects like a water heater, faucets, kitchen appliances, bathtubs, showers, toilets and even pipes that run through the wall. If you have water damage that is Category 1, we could bring back most (and sometimes all) of your flooring, walls and other contents if you contact us immediately.
Wreckage that is generated from water that runs through a sanitation system, broken sump pump or toilets with waste in them is classified as Category 2. Water from Category 2 typically contains contaminates made up from biological or chemical components that are dangerous. If your residence has Category 2 wreckage, items that have been soiled with the water will have to be removed in order to stop further damages and to make the area secure.
Category 3, or black water, refers to water that is extremely unsanitary and contains hazardous bacteria and fungi. This is generally caused by sewage discharge from broken pipes. Other sources consist of rising water from rivers or streams, ground surface water or water from Category 2 that was not treated and has been sitting for 48-72 hours. Damage remediation for Category 3 needs special tools and reliable methods to eradicate. With black water, a mould mitigation service is required to make sure that any contaminants won't spread.
