The Categories of Water Damage

Determining the necessary steps to begin restoration after water damage and evaluating the extent of the consequences. There are three categories of water damage:

Clean or Sanitary Water (Category 1): This category is made of liquid from a clean and sanitary source. While this water may start to be seen as clean, it can turn into category 2 rather quickly if not dealt with immediately. The restoration process concentrates on rapidly drying the afflicted area to stop the formation of mold, even if the water is usually safe to handle.

Category 1 sources include:

  • Faucets
  • Water fountains
  • Toilet Tanks

Black Water (Category 3): Black water, the worst kind, is extremely unhygienic and loaded with toxic substances and harmful bacteria. It may include heavy metals, organic materials, human feces, toxic compounds, and more.

Category 3 sources include:

  • Sewer Backup
  • Standing Liquid that contains Bacterial Growth
  • Flooding from Rivers or Streams
  • Toilet Overflows that contain Feces

Gray Water (Category 2): Due to the high concentration of toxins in gray water, it may be dangerous to drink or come into contact with the skin. There are microorganisms in this kind of water. Restoration requires drying and cleanliness in this category.

Category 2 sources include:

Repairing damage in a building.

Our mountain home suffered extensive mold damage in the crawlspace and chimney chase due to inferior home building. KW Construction was the only company I considered calling and I’m so happy I did! What a superior company and group of people to work with!

KW Construction has now provided us with two high quality renovations, one in 2006 and the other in 2020. In both cases, the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and execution were exceptional. It is rare to go through such a process and come out on the other side with 100% satisfaction.
