Then, water extraction will begin followed by disinfecting, drying out and dehumidification of your structure. This includes removing damaged and non-salvageable wet material.

The 3 Types Of Water Damage

Under the IICRC’s S-500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Restoration, water is classified into three categories. The following information will help you understand some technical terms and definitions associated with this water damage.

Sanitary Water or “Clear Water”

This poses no major health risks to you or your family however once it leaves its source it can quickly become contaminated. Something to remember is that water with a foul odor is a good indicator that it has been mixed with soil or other pollutants.

Gray Water

This water is contaminated and is unsafe for contact or consumption. This 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.

Black Water

This water is grossly contaminated and may be highly toxic to you, your family, your pets, or your co-workers. This is the most dangerous type of water damage. Black Water may contain raw sewage, pesticides, heavy metals, or toxic organic substances. Unlike the first two categories, Black Water will have a foul smell and is loaded with thousands of disease-causing viruses, bacteria and protozoa that can cause very serious illnesses if not properly treated. Normal water restoration procedures are simply not enough to protect the health of building inhabitants and prevent further property damage.
