After many delays, all work was completed, and they returned all of my belongings, safe & sound. I would recommend them for any packing and storage job."

Categories of Water Damage

In addition to structural damage, water can wreak havoc on the contents of your property:

Flame Damage

Category 1

Category 1 is a source of water that does not pose a substantial threat to humans and is classified as “Clean Water.” Examples include water supply lines and tub or sink overflows. We need to remove personal property from the water ASAP to dry, allowing for damage analysis. Items can develop mold and cause environmental hazards if they aren’t taken care of promptly.

Flame Damage

Category 2

Category 2 is known as “Gray Water.” It contains a significant degree of chemical, biological, or physical contaminants. Some examples include sump pump failures and seepage due to hydrostatic failure. Items need to be properly handled to ensure there are no cases of cross-contamination. Items will be moved to an onsite cleaning station and many may be unsalvageable. If not dealt with quickly, water can become a Category 3 hazard.

Flame Damage

Category 3

Category 3 is known as “Black Water.” It contains unsanitary agents, harmful bacteria, and fungi. Some examples include sewage, toilet backflows, seawater, rising water from rivers/streams, ground surface water, or standing water. Removing yourself from the property is the top priority. Remove and dispose of any articles of clothing that have come into contact with water. Do not try to handle anything personally, as this can cause severe infection and bodily injury.
