Types of Water Damage:
Category 1 (Fresh Water)
Originates from a sanitary source and poses no substantial risk from dermal, ingestion, or inhalation exposure. However, it may not always remain clean after it comes into content with other surfaces or materials.
Category 2 (Rain, Dishwasher & Similar Sources)
Contains significant contamination and has the potential to cause discomfort or sickness if contacted or consumed by humans. It may contain potentially unsafe levels of microorganisms or nutrients for microorganisms, as well as other organic or inorganic matter (chemical or biological.)
Category 3 (Sewage, Silt or Rising Water)
Loss meaning it is grossly contaminated and may contain pathogenic, toxigenic or other harmful agents (Such as water sources may carry silt, organic matter, pesticides, heavy metals, regulated materials or toxic organic substances.)
