Water Damage Categories
When your property sustains damage from supply lines (such as appliances, faucets, pipes, etc.) this falls under Category 1. Category 1 is called clean water since the source isn't dangerous when you come in contact with it. With this kind of discharge, the crew at Restoration 1 will be able to restore most, if not all, of your floors, walls or other household goods that got wet if we're contacted at once.
Category 2 comes from water damage that consists of biological, chemical and physical pollutants that are harmful to humans, and this can bring about major wreckage on your property. This usually stems from toilet bowls with waste in them, water discharge from dishwashers or washing machines, sump pump failures and any other water that runs through a sanitation system. Spaces that have been infected from this type of water will need to be removed as fast as possible in order to prevent mould growth.
Category 3, or black water, is water that is extremely unclean and contains harmful bacteria and fungi. This is generally caused by sewage back up from broken pipes. Other originators consist of rising water from rivers or streams, seawater, ground surface water or water from Category 2 that was not extracted and has been sitting for 48-72 hours. Water damage mitigation for Category 3 demands certain equipment and tried-and-true methods to eradicate. Ultimately, a mould remediation service is required to prevent any contaminants from spreading.
