Category of Water
Category of Water may vary depending on how the water damage loss occurred or its source. Water damage severity of threat to your home or business is often determined by the category of water.
This first category of water is sanitary water and it poses no major health risks to you or your family. You can drink it, wash with it, or (if it is steaming), you can inhale it safely. Most of the water that comes into your home will be Category 1 until it leaves its source, either a supply line, an appliance, or melting snow or rain.
Category 1 water is also called “Clear or Clean Water.” Once clear water leaves its source, however, it can quickly become contaminated and deteriorate to Category 2 or 3. Water with a foul odor is a good indicator that it has been mixed with soil or other pollutants
This water is definitely contaminated and is unsafe for either contact or consumption by you or your family. Category 2, or Gray Water, is typically “overflow” water from an appliance, toilet, aquarium or waterbed.
Like clear water, gray water will also deteriorate and become foul smelling. This process will take less time to become toxic, and should not go unattended for long.
This category of water is grossly contaminated and may be highly toxic to you and your family. Called Black Water, it may contain raw sewage, pesticides, heavy metals or toxic organic substances. Unlike the first two categories, Black Water will have a foul smell and likely contain pathogenic, toxigenic, or other harmful agents.
