What is a Category 1, 2 & 3 Water Damage?
The water extraction industry has a three-level Category or “CAT” scale for determining the level of contamination in water. Our water damage restoration team at AMMCO Restoration are ready and able to handle every level. CAT 1 water usually derives from clean-water plumbing damage such as sinks overflowing. Clean up and repair can typically proceed without extensive decontamination but it should be noted that leaving even clean standing water or soaked carpeting will inevitably lead to contamination such as mold so it is important to call an experienced team for emergency water extraction. Clean standing water, if left alone, can also worsen to CAT 2 when flooring and wall materials leech into the water. And this makes consumption or contact with the water a hazard for humans. Other CAT 2 water sources include overflowing toilets, dishwashers and washing machines for example. At AMMCO Restoration, all of our water extraction specialists have the training and equipment to safely remove this water to prevent further harm. A CAT 3 water hazard is severely unsanitary and will cause serious or even death if ingested. It is often declared after a natural disaster or a sewage backup. Cleanup of this hazardous waste water requires safety, meticulous attention to detail and speed. For this reason, only the most professional teams such as AMMCO Restoration are trusted with this type of mitigation.
Why Water Damage Clean Up Should Be Handled by Professionals
Water damage restoration is a complicated process which must be done immediately to prevent several issues that can arise. These issues can range from physical damage that can lead to costly replacement of materials and even correction of structural damage if left unchecked to serious health ailments as well as mental anxiety and stress for the whole family. Did you know that after only 24 – 48 hours, standing water can cause mold to grow? Water damage can be caused by sanitary sources such as a sink overflowing to water that has some degree of contaminants such as an overflowing toilet but it is category three water that is of the most concern. As mentioned above, category three water generates as a result of heavy rainstorms, rising waters and broken pipes. These are all dangerous situations for your loved ones as well as your home. This contaminated water is known as black water and usually contains fungi, animal feces, pathogens and various chemicals. Water damage can produce many dangerous side effects in your home and this is why accredited professionals like AMMCO Restoration need to be hired to neutralize standing water and address related health hazards.
