How We Classify Water Damage

Water classification by severity helps dictate the damage restoration process. Ways we classify water damage include:

  • Class 1: Damage is confined to a specific room or area. Absorption and evaporation required can be limited to negligible. Carpets, cushions, etc. can be cleaned and dried.
  • Class 2: Impact is of a larger scope, with plywood, wood, drywall, tile, etc., being affected. Extensive drying is required.
  • Class 3: Plumbing or other issues flood most or all of a dwelling. Damage and drying required are severe. Water damage is extensive.
  • Class 4: Major storms, flooding, natural disasters, surges, etc., result in this level of water damage. Overall structural stability is questionable, and widespread cleanup, drying, and restoration are required for livability.
