Types of Water Loss

  • Clean Water (Category 1):  Water contains no harmful contaminates.  This type of water generally flows from a broken water supply line.
  • Grey Water (Category 2):  Water contains a significant amount of contaminates.  Examples of this category are water from a toilet overflow (water/urine only), laundry overflow, and dishwasher overflow.  If this type of water damage is not cleaned up with 48 hours, the water will elevate to Black Water (Category 3).
  • Black Water (Category 3):  Water contains a large number of contaminates and causes a significant health risk.  The most common example of this is sewage backup and water coming in from the outside of your business or home.
