Water Damage Categories
When your house undergoes damage from water supply lines (such as appliances, water heaters, faucets, pipes, etc.) this is classified as Category 1. Category 1 is called clean water because the source isn't a hazard when you come in contact with it. With this type of discharge, the contractors at Restoration 1 will be able to save most, if not all, of your flooring, walls or other personal belongings that got wet if we're contacted at once.
Water damage classified as Category 2 that contains biological, chemical and physical contaminants that are harmful to humans, and this can bring about major wreckage in your home. This usually stems from toilet bowls with wastewater, water discharge from appliances, sump pump failures and any other water that goes through a sanitation system. Spaces that have been contaminated from this type of water damage will need to be removed as fast as possible in order to stop mould growth.
Black water, or Category 3, refers to water that is very contaminated and contains harmful bacteria and fungi. This is usually generated from sewage back up from broken pipes. Other sources include rising water from rivers or streams, ground surface water or water from Category 2 that was not treated and has been sitting for 2-3 days. Water damage remediation for Category 3 needs certain equipment and reliable methods to eradicate. With Category 3, a mould removal service is necessary to ensure that any mould won't spread.
