3 Categories of Water Damage

When water damage has struck you Cary home, it’s important to know the different categories of water damages and the health implications of each. It’s also important to note that if any type of water damage is left untreated, it can cause very serious health problems. 

Category 1 – Clean Water 

Category 1, or clean water, is water damage that comes from a clean source – like a toilet tank. This category of water does not pose an immediate threat, because the water is clean, but if the damages are left untreated it will support mold growth. 

Category 2 – Grey Water 

Category 2, or grey water, is contaminated water damages from malfunctions in washing machines, dishwashers, or overflowing toilets containing only urine. This water can smell and can cause some discomfort upon exposure. If left untreated, grey water will support the growth of harmful molds and bacteria in your Cary home. 

Category 3 – Black Water 

Category 3, or black water, is highly contaminated water that is full of harmful bacteria and other microorganisms. When exposed to black water, it can cause severe discomfort and illnesses to the occupants. This water is a result of natural floods, sewage backups, toilet overflows that include feces and fresh standing water. Like all categories of water, if black water is left untreated, it will support extremely harmful mold growth.

The Water Damage Restoration Process

At Professional Restoration Services, our team will identify what category of water is causing the damage and will stop the source of the water. After stopping the source of water that is entering your Cary home or business, we will create a water extraction plan, and begin the restoration process.

The first step is to remove all of the remain or standing water. Our team will complete this step using different pumps and vacuums. Once all of the excess water is removed, the technicians will move onto the next step.

Once all of the remaining water has been removed, the technicians will begin the drying and dehumidifying process. The step is crucial to preventing future mold growth. 

Once the area is completely dry, and any present mold is treated, the technicians will begin the restoration process. In minor water damages cases, this may include replacing any affected drywall or insulation. In more severe cases, the restoration process may include replacing entire walls or flooring.

Flood Water Restoration

Have a natural disaster or major storm that caused flooding in your home or business? It can be a stressful time because when a major storm hits that causes widespread flooding, it also creates a slow backlog of insurance adjusters and restoration contractors. There are many homeowners in a concentrated area with house water damage that needs water restoration. There simply isn’t enough contractors and insurance personnel to handle the increase in demand. This creates a CAT (catastrophe) situation and requires contractors to respond from outside the region into your affect geographic area. The best thing you can do as a homeowner is to try to have a preexisting relationship with a restoration company so you can be higher on the list, use Google Ads to find companies that are marketing to get leads from outside the area and speak to your insurance company on preferred contractors they have.
