Categories of Water Damage
To accurately and fully assess the damage to your Randallstown home, water damage is broken into three categories. Category 1 refers to clean water, which does not imply a safety hazard to humans. It would apply to broken appliances such as laundry machines or sink overflows.
Category 2 is called grey water, indicating that water is contaminated and contains microorganisms. The causes include broken toilets, sump pumps, and seepage.
Category 3 is black water, which is unsanitary water that contains bacteria and poses an immediate threat of illness. Sources include sewage backups and contamination or standing water.
There are also four classes of water damage, which are primarily dependent on materials in the home. Class 1 is the least harmful form of damage; very little water is absorbed into household materials. Class 2 is slightly more serious but has a fast rate of evaporation from materials. Examples include carpets and cushions. Class 3 also has a fast rate evaporation. It refers to water damage from sprinklers or overhead sources, and damage is therefore confined to walls and furniture. Finally, Class 4 is the most labor-intensive and will require special water removal and restoration procedures. It implies damage to hardwood floors, concrete, or plaster.
It is important to act fast after water damage has occurred. Quick action could mean the difference between a home being declared condemnable or not.
