Water Damage Categories
Category 1 water damage is caused by something that isn't a hazard for humans. Commonly, this is caused by supply lines from things such as faucets, kitchen appliances, bathtubs toilets and even pipes that run through the wall. If you have water damage that is Category 1, we could restore most (and sometimes all) of your flooring, walls and other contents if you get in touch with us immediately.
Damage that is caused by water that goes through a sanitation system, malfunctioning sump pump or toilet bowls with waste in them falls under Category 2. Water from Category 2 typically contains foreign matter made up from biological or chemical components that pose as a hazard. If your property has Category 2 water damage, things that have been soiled with the water will need to be extracted in order to prevent further damages and to make the area safe.
Category 3, or black water, refers to water that is extremely unsanitary and contains dangerous bacteria and fungi. This is frequently caused by sewage back up from broken pipes. Other originators consist of rising water from rivers or streams, seawater, ground surface water or water from Category 2 that was not removed and has been in place for 48-72 hours. Damage repair for Category 3 requires special tools and tried-and-true techniques to eliminate. Ultimately, a mould remediation service is required to prevent any contaminants from spreading.
