Water Sanitary Categorization

Your water cleanup method will be based on the sanitary level of the water to be removed. Water is classified into three water damage categories: Sanitary Water, Unsanitary Water, and Grossly Unsanitary Water:

Category 1 Sanitary Water: Relatively clean water and poses no immediate health hazard or biochemical danger. This water comes from burst water heaters, leaking pipes, and rain.

Category 2 Unsanitary Water: Water has contaminants that affect people’s health. Examples would be water from dishwasher overflows, kitchen sink overflows, and used water from washing machines.

Category 3 Grossly Unsanitary Water: This type poses a health hazard and contact with this water is harmful and can be deadly. Water from toilets overflows raw sewage, some contaminated floodwaters, and seawater.
