What Is The Severity of Water Damage In Your Home Or Business?
In most cases, water damage is determined both by health and property. That said, there are three categories of water damage that’s based on duration, source, and various other factors like mold. We will determine the category of water damage and provide the following services:
Category 1 damage – Usually, this is caused by clean water from a leaking sink or broken pipe. So, it does not pose a health risk. That’s why restoration of a category 1 damaged property is easier, consequently requiring less equipment and time. That said, if left untreated, it can soon turn into a category 2.
Category 2 damage – Usually, these involve gray water with a bit of contamination. Generally, the water will come from a broken sewer line or overflowing sewerage. The issue can turn into a category 3 within just 48 hours, so we need to work fast.
Category 3 damage – It is the most dangerous type of water damage and mainly caused by black water contamination. Blackwater is defined as polluted water, which poses serious health risks. Our team will need to work the hardest and take all possible safety precautions during cleaning up and restoring your property.
