Water damage is defined broadly as any kind of structural damage caused by water.
Water damage is tiered in four categories that are based on the rate of evaporation. They are as follows:
- Class 1. Rate of Evaporation: Slow. Affects little or only a small section of a room and most moisture is absorbed by materials in the room.
- Class 2. Rate of Evaporation: Fast. Typically in with this category of water damage the water has affected most if not the entire room and may have absorbed up the walls but only up to a height of 24 inches.
- Class 3. Rate of Evaporation: Fastest. Water typically is from some overhead source and effects everything in the entire room. This is the most damaging type and the one that will cost the most money to clean up.
- Class 4. Special drying circumstances: This category is for certain installations and some kinds of flooring, carpeting and so forth that require a very specific kind of heating clean up.
The water, itself, is also tiered using a ranked system, numbering one to three, the ranking is by severity of the condition of the water. It goes from clean to the worst sanitary conditions. They are as follows:
- Clean Water, Category 1: This categorization refers to water that is generally clean and fairly sanitary, such as an overflow of the kitchen sink or rupture in a non-chlorinated swimming pool. This kind of water does not pose a significant health hazard.
- Grey Water, Category 2: Refers to contaminated water that may contain microorganisms, fungi and chemicals. This type of water poses a significant health hazard and is unsafe to drink. May cause sickness and or discomfort when consumed.
- Black Water, Category 3: The most severe category of water and typically evolves from stagnant gray water. This type of water is wholly unsanitary and one should not even stand in it. This kind of water is typically from overflows occurring from underground sewage carriers, rising sea-levels, breached treatment levies and other similar sources. Type three water must always affect indoor environments to be thus classified.
Potential for Mold Growth
Water damage, if left untreated, may facilitate mold growth. Dark spots on walls may be caused by water damage or mold and should be investigated promptly. Mold itself can be very dangerous and can cause sickness, dizziness, discomfort and in very severe cases, death, though very uncommon. Other symptoms of mold may include but are not limited to itchy eyes, chronic coughing, headaches, migraines, shortness of breath, chronic drowsiness, rashes, sinus complications, nasal blockage and continual sneezing.
