Water Damage Categories
Water damage that's under Category 1 is caused by a source that isn't a hazard for humans. Commonly, this is generated from supply lines from household objects 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 bring back most (and sometimes all) of your flooring, walls and other contents if you reach out to us immediately.
Damage that is generated from water that runs through a sanitation system, malfunctioning sump pump or toilets with waste in them falls under Category 2. Water from Category 2 generally has contaminates made up from biological or chemical components that are dangerous. If your home has Category 2 water damage, items that have come into contact with the water will have to be extracted in order to prevent further damages and to make the area secure.
Category 3 damage is extremely unclean and is a danger. This is called black water and it contains dangerous bacteria and fungi. Category 3 is typically derived from sewage backups, but could also be caused by ground surface water flooding your home or even from Category 2 water wasn't extracted and has been sitting for 2-3 days.
