Water Damage Categories
Category 1 water damage originates from something that isn't a hazard for humans. Typically, this is caused by supply lines from household objects such as a water heater, faucets, kitchen appliances, bathtubs, showers, toilets and even pipes that are in the wall. When you have water damage that is Category 1, we could bring back most (and sometimes all) of your floors, walls and other contents if you call us at once.
Category 2 comes from water damage that consists of biological, chemical and physical contaminants that are harmful to humans, and this can lead to major wreckage on your property. This can come from toilets with wastewater, water discharge from dishwashers or washing machines, sump pump failures and any other water that runs through a sanitation system. Areas that have been infected from this type of water damage will need to be removed as quickly as possible in order to stop mould growth.
Category 3 damage is very unsanitary and is a hazard. This is known as black water and it consists of harmful bacteria and fungi. Category 3 is typically derived from sewage backups, but could also be the result of ground surface water flooding your house or even from Category 2 water that's been sitting for 48-72 hours. This type of wreckage needs special attention from our professionals who have the necessary tools and know the best methods to clean up the contamination.
