How We Categorize Water Damage

  • Category 1: Damage from cleaner sources such as sinks, bathtubs, broken taps, plumbing leaks, etc. Mold growth can occur if damage isn't effectively dried. Less sanitizing or decontamination is required.
  • Category 2: Roof, ceiling, attic, wall, other structural leaks, extensive flooding from pipe bursts, HVAC or other large appliance leaks, etc. These require identifying and stemming the water source, as well as larger-scale professional water extraction and drying.
  • Category 3: Sewage backups, storm surges, severe flooding, water from fire suppression, and other hazardous sanitary levels. Professional extraction, drying, surface sanitizing and decontamination are required.
