Water Damage Categories
When your house experiences damage from water supply lines (like appliances, faucets, pipes, etc.) this is known as Category 1. Category 1 refers to clean water because the source isn't dangerous when you come in contact with it. With this type of water damage, the professionals 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.
Category 2 comes from water damage that contains biological, chemical and physical pollutants that are harmful to humans, and this can bring about extensive wreckage on your property. This can come from toilet bowls with waste in them, water discharge from appliances, sump pump malfunctions and any other water that runs through a sanitation system. Spaces that have been infected from this category of water will have to be removed immediately in order to prevent mould growth.
Black water, or Category 3, refers to water that is filthy and contains harmful bacteria and fungi. This is typically caused by sewage discharge from broken pipes. Other sources include rising water from rivers or streams, ground surface water or water from Category 2 that was not removed and has been sitting for 2-3 days. Water damage mitigation for Category 3 requires special tools and professional methods to eliminate. With black water, a mould remediation service is necessary to prevent any contaminants from spreading.
