The Categories of Water Damage
The IICRC Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration (IICRC S500) is a procedural standard that defines three major categories of water damage:
Category 1: Sanitary water, or clean water, that does not pose a substantial risk from dermal, ingestion, or inhalation exposure. When category 1 water damage occurs, Watermark Restoration Solutions is able to salvage and dry any affected building material. Some common causes of this category of water damage can range from rain water to water supply lines.
Category 2: Significantly contaminated water, also known as gray water, has the potential to cause discomfort or sickness if contacted or consumed. As a result, our professionals will safely remove and disinfect any contaminated materials using organic, plant-based microbials.
Category 3: Grossly contaminated water, or black water, contains harmful agents that cause adverse reactions if contacted or consumed. Category 3 water damage often stems from waste lines backflows, rising water from rivers, and more. Our technicians will safely remove all affected cosmetic materials, and use antimicrobial spray, biocides, and other EPA registered products to clean the area, extract the water, and dehumidify your home or business.
