Category 3 Water Damage

Restoration Procedures for Different Categories of Water Damage

1

Category 1

 

Clean Water

 
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.

2

Category 2

 

Toilet Overflows, Washer Leaks, Water Entering from Below Grade

 
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.

3

Category 3

 

Sewer Backup, Flood Waters

 
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.

Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Our process works through mitigating, or “minimizing the severity” of your loss. We do this through our emergency response crews that come equipped to extract all water, apply a disinfectant, remove any non-salvageable materials and use drying equipment to dry the materials that can be saved, and prevent mold. On average, every $1 spent on mitigation can save $5 in future repair costs. As response time is so critical, getting a free estimate as soon as possible is extremely important to reducing further damage and preventing mold. If you have any questions about how your situation should be handled, please contact us.
