Categories of Water Damage

Water damage is broadly categorized into three distinct categories based on the source and type of water involved. Understanding these categories is crucial for implementing the right restoration approach.

Category 1 - Clean Water

Water damage that is caused by a sanitary and clean source such as a broken water pipe or leaky appliances into Category 1. PDQ Fire & Water Damage Restoration understands the importance of taking swift action to avoid the escalation in damage. Our team uses industry-best practices for thorough cleaning and restoration to protect your property against further complications.

Category 2 - Grey Water

Grey water is not as pure as Category 1 but it's still slightly contaminated. It can cause illness or discomfort if consumed. Water from washing machines or dishwashers can be a source. We have the specialized knowledge to clean and restore grey water, minimize health risks, and salvage your property.

sewage cleanup

Category 3 - vBlack Water

Water damage in Category 3 is the worst. It involves highly contaminated water, which poses serious health risks. This category includes water damage from natural disasters or sewage backups. We have the resources and knowledge to handle Category 3 incidents. We implement strict safety protocols for both occupants as well as our restoration professionals.
