Water Damage Categories
There are three categories of water that cause water damage. They are defined by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) as Category 1, Category 2, and Category 3. The IICRC also defines the proper methods of water damage remediation, based on the hazards presented by each category of water.
- Category 1
Category 1 water, aka “clean water,” comes from a clean source. This water, before it comes into contact with outside bacteria and other matter, poses no health risk to humans or animals by exposure to skin, by inhaling air adjacent to the water, or through ingestion.
- Category 2
Category 2 water is also known as “grey water.” This water contains a moderate level of contamination, but the contamination is non-toxic. Exposure to or ingestion of grey water can cause discomfort or illness in humans and animals, and should be avoided.
- Category 3
Category 3 water is the highest-risk level of water contamination. This is also known as “black water.” It can cause serious illness or death to humans and animals as a result of exposure or consumption. Black water damage is highly unsanitary, and should only be dealt with by certified water remediation specialists. If you must handle black water, take extreme precautions.
