What was the source of my water damage?
Did you know that water damages are separated into three categories depending on the source of the water? These categories define the relative contamination levels contained in the water and the relative danger it poses to occupants. The three categories are:
Category 1: Clean water, water from a broken supply pipe. Category 1 water contains no contamination and does not pose a threat to occupants.
Category 2: Category two water contains a significant degree of contaminants and could cause discomfort/illness when occupants are exposed to them. Examples of category two water include overflow from washing machines and or dishwashers.
Category 3: Category three water is grossly unsanitary and can cause severe discomfort/sickness. Sources of category three water are sewage back flows, flood waters.
Category one and category two water that is not removed from a home expediently can progress to a category three contamination level.
