Category 1 water intrusions are the result of compromised sanitary water supply lines. In order for a situation to remain Category 1, water must not have sat in a structure for more than 72 hours, and materials affected must be clean and well maintained.
Water that contains a significant degree of chemical, biological and/or physical contamination is said to be Category 2. If the water source was originally Category 1, the water will degrade to Category 2 after 72 hours. When water is a Category 2, it will become a Category 3 after 48 hours.
When water intrusion results from a grossly unsanitary source, carries disease causing agents, or when water has dwelled in a structure for more than 120 hours, it is said to be Category 3. Regardless of the initial source, water can be deemed Category 3 if it is allowed to dwell in the structure for five days.
Water damage can happen from many sources, from loose hoses to heavy rainfall. Regardless of the source, Chicago Water & Fire Restoration can handle any size disaster.
