Water Categorization

It is crucial to handle any water damage immediately. The longer you wait, the more difficult, dangerous, and expensive the process will be. The safest course of action in any flooding or water damage situation is to call the professional team at Water Savers.

We will analyze and then categorize the water that has entered your home or business into one of three water types determined by the Institute of International Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Different techniques will then be used to remove the water depending on its classification.

  1. Category 1 / Clean Water:Clean Water is the first category of water that can cause damage to your home, but it does not post an immediate health threat. This water comes from sink or bathtub overflows, broken water lines, appliance malfunctions, toilet holding tanks, and melting snow and rainwater. While this category of water does not usually contain any contaminants, it can quickly become a higher category.
  2. Category 2 / Gray Water:Gray Water comes from a source that likelycontains small amounts of contaminants but is not contaminated with fecal matter. Common sources include water from bathtubs, showers, appliances, sinks, snow/rainfall, or broken pipes. If left untreated a gray water situation can quickly become more dangerous.
  3. Category 3 / Black Water:Black Water is a serious health risk to anyone who comes in contact with it. This category of water contains pathogens, toxins, pesticides, or heavy metals and includes sewage from flush toilets, bidets, or broken sewage pipes; flood waters from rivers or streams; or water that enters buildings as a result of weather events, such as hurricanes or storms. Blackwater floods are the most dangerous and destructive type of water damage.
