Classifications of Water Damage
Category 1 water damage is caused by a source that isn't a hazard for humans. Usually, this is caused by water supply lines from household objects such as faucets, kitchen appliances, bathtubs, showers, toilets and even pipes that are in the wall. If you have water damage that is Category 1, we could bring back most (if not, all) of your floors, walls and other contents if you call us immediately.
Category 2 is water damage that has biological, chemical and physical pollutants that are harmful to humans, and this can lead to extensive wreckage in your home. This usually stems from toilet bowls with wastewater, water discharge from appliances, sump pump malfunctions and any other water that runs through a sanitation system. Spaces that have been infected from this kind of water will have to be extracted immediately in order to stop mould growth.
Category 3 water damage is extremely unsanitary and is a hazard. This is known as black water and it has harmful bacteria and fungi. Category 3 is usually derived from sewage backups, but could also be caused by ground surface water flooding your house or even from Category 2 water wasn't taken care of and has been sitting for 48-72 hours. This kind of wreckage requires certain attention from our experts who have the necessary equipment and know the best approached to extract the contamination.
