Water Damage Categories
If your house sustains damage from supply lines (such as appliances, water heaters, faucets, pipes, etc.) this falls under Category 1. Category 1 is called clean water since the source isn't harmful if it comes in contact. With this type of discharge, the team 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.
Wreckage that is derived from water that runs through a sanitation system, malfunctioning sump pump or toilet bowls with waste in them is classified as Category 2. Water from Category 2 frequently contains contaminates made up from biological or chemical parts that are dangerous. If your house has Category 2 water damage, things that have come into contact with the water will need to be cleared out in order to prevent further damages and to make the area safe.
Category 3 damage is highly unsanitary and is a danger. This is called black water and it consists of dangerous bacteria and fungi. Category 3 is usually derived from sewage backups. However, it could also be caused by ground surface water flooding your house or even from Category 2 water that's been sitting for 48-72 hours. This type of wreckage requires certain attention from our damage specialists who have the necessary tools and know the best methods to eliminate the contamination.
