Classifications of Water Damage

Water damage is typically classified into one of the following three categories.  The categories refer to the range of contamination in the water.  Time and temperature can also affect the quality of the water, thereby changing its category. Different removal methods and measures are used depending on the category of water. Time and temperature without airflow are major enemies.  Response and drying times are crucial in keeping any loss to a minimum.

Originates from a clean water source and does not pose substantial risk from dermal, ingestion, or inhalation exposure. Examples of Category 1 water sources can include broken water supply lines, tub or sink overflows with no contaminants, appliance malfunctions involving water supply lines, melting ice or snow, falling rainwater and broken toilet tanks that do not contain additives. The cleanliness of Category 1 water may deteriorate into Category 2 or 3 for many reasons, including but not limited to: contact with building materials, systems and contents or mixing with soils and other contaminants.

Contains significant contamination and has the potential to cause discomfort or sickness if contacted or consumed by humans.  Category 2 water can contain potentially unsafe levels of microorganisms or nutrients for microorganisms, as well as other organic or inorganic matter (chemical or biological).

Examples of Category 2 water can include: discharge from dishwashers or washing machines, overflows from washing machines, overflows from toilet bowls with some urine but no feces, broken aquariums and punctured water beds.The cleanliness of Category 2 water can deteriorate for many reasons, including but not limited to: contact with building materials, systems and contents, and mixing with soils and other contaminants.

Grossly contaminated and can contain pathogenic, toxigenic or other harmful agents.  Examples of Category 3 water can include but are not limited to: sewage, toilet back flows that originate from beyond the toilet trap regardless of visible content or color, all forms of flooding from seawater, ground surface water and rising water from rivers or streams, and other contaminated water from outside entering the indoor environment. Such water sources may carry silt, organic matter, pesticides, heavy metals, regulated materials or toxic organic substances.
