Determine the Category of Water
Determine the Category of Water-
It is important to know the class of water before we go out to a job- this helps us know what kinds of equipment to bring as well as be prepared for any safety issues that might come up.
Clean water Category 1
Broken pipe, ice maker, drain overflow
Does not contain waste or contaminants-
Usually everything that was effected can be restored with this category of water-
Gray water Category 2
Washing machine, dishwasher, roof leak
Has some soils and contaminants-
Generally most effected areas can be restored with this class as well except for maybe porous materials.
Black water Category 3
Raw sewage, floods
High degree of waste and contaminants--
With this category of water with very few exceptions, anything effected must be discarded.
