Depending on which category of water has affected your home, different steps will be taken to prevent further damage. Categories of water are explained in detail below.
Category 1 (clear water): This is liquid from a clean and sanitary source, such as faucets, toilet tanks, drinking fountains, etc. But, category one can quickly degrade into category two.
Category 2 (grey water): This category of liquid is described as having a level of contaminates that may cause illness or discomfort if ingested. Sources include dishwasher or washing machine overflows, flush from sink drains, and toilet overflow with some urine but not feces.
Category 3: (black water): This is the worst classification, and is grossly unsanitary. It could cause severe illness or death if ingested. Sources include sewer backup, flooding from rivers or streams, toilet overflow with feces, and stagnant liquid that has begun to support bacterial growth.
