3 types of water contamination
Category 1

Category 1 water originates from a sanitary water source and does not pose 3 substantial risk from dermal, ingestion, or inhalation exposure.

Examples of Category 1 water sources can include, but are not limited to: broken water supply lines; tub or sink overflows with no contaminants; appliance malfunctions involving water-supply lines; melting ice or snow; falling rainwater; broken toilet tanks, and toilet bowls that do not contain contaminants or additives.

Category 2

Category 2 water contains significant contamination and has the potential to cause discomfort or sickness if contacted or consumed by humans. Category 2 water can contain potentially unsafe levels of microorganisms or nutrients for microorganisms, as well as other organic or inorganic matter (chemical or biological).

Examples of category 2 water can include, but are not limited to: discharge from dishwashers or washing machines; overflows from washing machines; overflows from toilet bowls on the room side of the trap with some urine but no feces; seepage due to hydrostatic pressure; broken aquariums and punctured water beds.

Category 3

Category 3 water is grossly contaminated and can contain pathogenic, toxigenic or other harmful agents and can cause significant adverse reactions to humans if contacted or consumed.

Examples of Category 3 water can include, but are not limited to: sewage; wasteline backflows that originate from beyond any trap regardless of visible content or color; all forms of flooding from seawater; rising water from rivers or streams; and other contaminated water entering or affecting the indoor environment, such as wind-driven rain from hurricanes, tropical storms, or other weather-related events.

Category 3 water can carry trace levels of regulated or hazardous materials (e.g., pesticides, or toxic organic substances).

Water loss categories can worsen depending on a variety of factors. If clean water travels through pet feces or urine that can turn category 1 water into category 2 or 3. If category 2 water sits for longer than 36 hours, it could be classified as category 3 where the bacterial levels have risen to an unhealthy and hazardous amount. That is why it is imperative to call a qualified water restoration cleanup company quickly when you discover water intrusion.

The 4 water damage classes

The IICRC also defines 4 types of water damage classes. Not only will your technician identify the water source category but the class of the loss as well. Water restoration classes help determine the type of equipment to be used and how much moisture is present in building’s structure. 

Class 1

Is considered the least amount of water or moisture present. A common example of this is where water may only affect the carpet and hasn’t been absorbed into other building materials. 

Class 2

Is considered where a significant amount of water intrusion and evaporation load. A common example of this would be a water pipe burst in the wall that affected 25% of the flooring and part of the wall the pipe was encased in.

Class 3

Is considered the greatest amount of water intrusion and evaporation load. A common example of this would be 3-inches of standing water throughout the entire area and walls are wet 12-inches high.

Class 4

Is a special case class where there is “deeply held or bound water”. What that means is there are materials present that hold more water than other building materials. Two very common examples of this are plaster-based walls and hardwood floors. These take longer to dry than typical drywall or wood types that easily release moisture from within them.
