Tina Benton of ABC Damage Restoration says, “If your home experiences water damage, no matter what the cause of it is, you need to make sure that you act fast so that you can protect your home and yourself. The longer water damage is left untreated, the worse the effects will be. However, while most restoration companies will take a ‘one size fits all’ approach to every case, the truth is that there are different types of water damage, and they all have to be dealt with in a specific manner.”

According to ABC Damage Restoration, there are three main types of water damage, as designated by the IICRC (the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification). They are clean water damage, gray water damage, and black water damage.

Clean water damage is considered to be Category 1, meaning it is the least severe on the IICRC scale. This includes water damage that has been caused by burst pipes and water supply lines, overflowing sinks and bathtubs, and various appliance issues. The key reason as to why this type of damage is considered the least severe is because the water involved is mostly free of sewage materials and toxins. ABC Damage Restoration explains that more often than not, most items damaged due to this type of water damage can be dried easily without any need for concern.

Higher on the scale is damage that has been caused by gray water. This includes water from appliances like toilets, washing machines, and sump pump backups. While these are not 100% harmful, they can be potentially problematic, which makes it important that any and all affected items are removed, following which the area must be completely disinfected.

The most severe type of water damage, Category 3, is black water damage. ABC Damage Restoration emphasizes that in such cases, swift action is required to ensure that the residents of the property do not suffer long-term health effects. Sewage, rising floodwaters, seawater, river, and groundwater are all considered to be black water. If a property is affected by black water damage, the water damage restoration will require the removal of many items and a thorough disinfection procedure.
