Classifications of Water Damage
When your property experiences damage from supply lines (like appliances, water heaters, faucets, pipes, etc.) this falls under Category 1. Category 1 is called clean water because the source isn't a hazard if you come in contact with it. With this type of discharge, the crew at Restoration 1 will be able to restore most, if not all, of your floors, walls or other personal belongings that got wet if we're contacted at once.
Water damage under Category 2 that has biological, chemical and physical contaminants that are dangerous to humans, and this can lead to extensive wreckage on your property. This can come from toilet bowls with waste in them, water discharge from dishwashers or washing machines, sump pump failures and any other water that goes through a sanitation system. Spaces that have been infected from this kind of water damage will need to be extracted as quickly as possible in order to stop mould growth.
Category 3 damage is extremely unclean and is a hazard. This is called black water and it has dangerous bacteria and fungi. Category 3 is typically caused by sewage backups, but could also be caused by ground surface water flooding your property or even from Category 2 water that's been sitting for 2-3 days. This type of wreckage needs special treatment from our contractors who have the necessary equipment and know the best methods to clean up the contamination.
