Categories of Water Damage
Water damage that's classified as Category 1 is generated from a source that isn't dangerous for humans. Commonly, this is caused by supply lines from things such as a water heater, faucets, kitchen appliances, bathtubs toilets and even pipes that are in the wall. When you have water damage that is Category 1, we could bring back most (and sometimes all) of your floors, walls and other contents if you get in touch with us immediately.
Damage that is caused by water that runs through a sanitation system, broken sump pump or toilets with waste in them falls under Category 2. Water from Category 2 frequently contains contaminates made up from biological or chemical parts that pose as a hazard. If your house has Category 2 wreckage, items that have come into contact with the water will need to be extracted in order to stop further damages and to make the area secure.
Black water, or Category 3, is water that is very unclean and contains hazardous bacteria and fungi. This is typically caused by sewage back up from broken pipes. Other sources include rising water from rivers or streams, seawater, ground surface water or water from Category 2 that was not removed and has been sitting for 48-72 hours. Damage remediation for Category 3 needs certain equipment and professional techniques to eliminate. Ultimately, a mould removal service is required to make sure that any bacteria and fungi won't spread.
