Water damage is usually divided into one of three different categories.  These categories refer to the sanitation and health concerns caused by water damage.

  • Category 1 Water.  This type of water damage involves a source which does not pose health hazards.  For example, if you have an overflow from your sink, you are dealing with category 1 water.  Water lines leading into devices is classified as category 1.  This type of water damage is the easiest to deal with.  While it is less hazardous than category 2 or 3 water, you should not put it off.  Category 1 water can still lead to mold, which does pose a significant health hazard.
  • Category 2 Water.  This is water which does pose a health hazard.  Usually it contains some kind of contaminant, which could be chemical or biological.  Sometimes this type of water is called “grey water.”  If your flood is from a clogged toilet bowl without solid waste, you have a category 2 situation.  Water from washing machines or dishwashers also qualifies as category 2.  This type of water can turn into category 3 water if it stagnates.
  • Category 3 Water.  Category 3 floods cause the most health problems, and are the most critical to get fixed as soon as possible.  Category 3 water is called “black water.”  If you have a flood from a backed up toilet with fecal matter, you have a black-water flood.  Black water may also come into your home if sewage manages to make its way into your house.  Sometimes floodwater from actual floods is classified as category 3 for this reason.  It is urgent to get black water out of your home so that nobody gets sick.
