Category 1 is also known as "Clean Water" restoration and refers to the flooding of a water source that poses no threat to humans. This is typically a supply line of a water heater, taps, dishwashers, washing machines, toilets and other supply lines in the walls. If flooding of a source of clean water is treated quickly, most of the time you can save most if not all of the floor, walls, and its contents.
Category 2 is known as "gray water" and it refers to the flooding of a water source that contains a high degree of biological, chemical or physical contaminants, which can cause disease and extensive damage to the property. Category 2 damage is usually associated with urine drains, dishwashers or washing machines, sinks and other types of water that goes through the sewage system. Any area that has been contaminated by water must be removed to prevent mold growth and possible mitigating issues that can cause further damage to your property.
Category 3 is known as "black water" and it refers to the flooding of an extremely unhygienic source of water that contains harmful bacteria and fungi. These things may cause discomfort or severe disease. Category 3 damage normally comes from the return of waste water from your toilet or sink. Other sources include seawater, water from rivers or streams, water from the earth's surface into your home or stagnant category 2 water that is not removed quickly and stays in place for 48-72 hours. To treat this type of flooding, the professional needs extremely specialized equipment and training. In most cases, professionals will have to clean up the mold after drying is complete.
Do not enter standing water. A very good rule of thumb as to when you should or should not enter any water damaged area is if the water damage comes from a backup of sewer lines. If you see any debris floating around, or know for sure that the water damage is of a sewer line backup, then under no circumstances enter the water. Leave that kind of work to professionals. In all these cases, the sooner you call a profession, the quicker they can mitigate the damage and save more of your property.
