Category 1 (Clean or Sanitary Water)

This category is made of liquid from a clean and sanitary source. While this water may start to be seen as clean, it can turn into category 2 rather quickly if not dealt with immediately. The restoration process concentrates on rapidly drying the afflicted area to stop the formation of mold, even if the water is usually safe to handle.

Category 1 sources include:

  • Faucets
  • Water fountains
  • Toilet Tanks
washing machine water overflow

Category 2 (Gray Water)

: Due to the high concentration of toxins in gray water, it may be dangerous to drink or come into contact with the skin. There are microorganisms in this kind of water. Restoration requires drying and cleanliness in this category.

Category 2 sources include:

  • Washing Machine Overflows
  • Leaking Dishwashers
  • Flush from Sink Drains
