Water Damage Categories
When your property experiences damage from supply lines (such as appliances, water heaters, faucets, pipes, etc.) this falls under Category 1. Category 1 refers to clean water since the source isn't dangerous if it comes in contact. With this kind of water damage, the contractors at Restoration 1 will be able to save most, if not all, of your floors, walls or other household goods that got wet if we're contacted at once.
Category 2 is water damage that has biological, chemical and physical contaminants that are harmful to humans, and this can bring about extensive wreckage on your property. This can come from toilet bowls with wastewater, water discharge from dishwashers or washing machines, sump pump malfunctions and any other water that runs through a sanitation system. Spaces that have been contaminated from this category of water will need to be extracted immediately in order to prevent mould growth.
Category 3 damage is very contaminated and is a danger. This is called black water and it has harmful bacteria and fungi. Category 3 is typically caused by sewage backups. However, it could also be caused by ground surface water flooding your property or even from Category 2 water that's been sitting for 48-72 hours. This kind of damage needs certain treatment from our experts who have the necessary equipment and know the best techniques to extract the contamination.
