Category 1 – Clean Water Loss
Category 1 water damage is from a clean source, usually a leaking faucet, broken pipe or broken water supply line. It is still critical to treat this type of flood or leak quickly as it can easily turn into a category 2 or 3, depending upon time, temperature and contact with contaminants in the area. The potential for the development of mold is a dangerous consideration as well.
Category 2 – Gray Water Loss
Category 2 water damage is contaminated water and exposure can cause illness. This type of water damage can result from a washing machine overflow, toilet overflow with urine but no feces, and dishwasher overflow, as well as many other sources. The water may contain bacteria and viruses, and can quickly degrade to a category 3 situation if not promptly treated.
Category 3 – Black Water Loss
Category 3 water is already grossly contaminated and could cause grave illness or death if consumed. ALL contact should be strictly avoided. Situations that may result in a category 3 contamination include sewer or septic backup and overflow, flooding from rivers or streams, overflowing toilet with feces or untreated standing water that has developed microbial growth. This type of water damage may contain untreated sewage, microbes and or harsh chemicals and bacteria.
