1/10/2018 (Permalink)

While category 1 water from a broken pipe or such is sanitary water, category 2 water is more dangerous. Water pipe repair won’t be the only aspect you have to deal with if your property in City, State, becomes the victim of category 2 water damage. A restoration company can clean up your flooded building and restore it. Here’s what you need to know about category 2 damage.

What Is Category 2 Water?

Category 2 water is often referred to as “grey water.” This water is contaminated and can cause illness and discomfort. While category 2 water may be clean water that sits too long, other common sources of category 2 water are the following:

• Washing machines
• Dishwashers
• Sinks
• Toilets

However, if feces are present, it’s category 3 water. Be advised that category 2 water can quickly turn into category 3 water, which is the most dangerous type. Temperature, time and cleanliness of the building are often responsible for upgrading category 2 water to category 3 water.
