Often times after someone has experienced water damage in their home, they do not know what the next step is. An important part of knowing what to do next, is knowing what kind of water you are dealing with. Here are some helpful tips to look for when dealing with water damage in your home. The categories of water damage are defined by the Institute of International Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
Category 1 (White Water) is caused by water that does not contain contaminates that pose a threat to your health, or clean water. It can come from things like a malfunctioning appliance, supply lines, and rainwater. Although category 1 home floods are safe to clean up yourself, it is important to know that clean water can quickly turn into category 2 water damage if left standing for 48 hours.
Category 2 (Grey Water) refers to water that is not sewage, but does contain contaminants. This can include water damage that comes from washing machines, dishwashers, bathtubs, sinks, an overflowing plumbing fixture, or weather damage. It is important to wear protective gear if you attempt to clean it.
Category 3 (Black Water) is defined as water that is contaminated with pathogens or toxins, such as human waste. In your home, this can come from broken sewage pipes or toilets.
Flooding from a weather event that enters a building as a result of a storm or hurricane, can potentially carry contaminants that puts it in the category of blackwater.
