There are plenty of ways for your property to become flooded. Did you know that there are three different categories of water damage based on the water source? Category 1: Clean Water Water from this source is sanitary and comes from sources such as faucets, water lines, and toilets. If this water is not cleaned up quickly, this water can evolve into a category 2, which can cause health issues. Category 2: Grey Water Water from this source comes from sinks, showers, tubs, and washing machines. Grey water may contain dirt food, grease, hair, and other household contaminants. Category 3: Unsanitary Water damage from this source is considered dangerous because the water is filled with noxious contaminants that can make you ill or even cause death. Typical sources of category three water damage are sewer backup, toilet overflow with fecal matter, flood water and stagnant water. Please stay away from category 3 water. We care about your health and well being. Safety Tips
