CATEGORY 1: CLEAN WATER
Clean water does not pose a substantial threat to people. But if left untreated can be re-classified as category 2 of category 3.
- An example of this would be an overflow from a sink, tub, or water line supply. This usually involves a water supply line malfunction.
CATEGORY 2: GRAY WATER
Gray water source usually contains chemical, biological or physical contaminants. These can cause people illness when consumed or exposed. Also, if left untreated this can be re classified as category 3.
- This usually involves toilet bowls with urine, sump pump failures. Essentially water carrying micro-organisms and nutrients of micro-organisms.

Water damage done to your home is covered by a standard homeowner’s insurance policy dependent. If it is considered sudden internal water damage. Home insurance does not cover damage done by lack of maintenance or neglect, nor damage resulting from a flood. Most commercial property insurance policies cover leaks and burst pipes.

Timing depends on the type of damage and property size. Full restoration consists of two major phases. The first, mitigation, any demolition, cleaning and drying out the structure and belongings. This phase usually takes no more than 3 to 4 days. But in rare circumstances it may take longer. The second phase, repairs. Can range from a few days to a couple of weeks.
