Malfunctioning dishwashers or washing machines, collapsed sewage system or septic tank, broken pipes etc. are just a few of the random reasons why water damage may suddenly herald an unforeseen crisis in your household.
Natural calamities such as earthquakes, rain, frost etc. can lead to long term water catastrophe through the stagnant ground water. When left unchecked, water damage not only reaps havoc through the destruction of property but may also cause serious health hazard through illnesses which I even lead to fatalities.
Categories of Water Damage
Water damage may be of varying degrees of magnitude & can be categorized in three different ways.
Category one water damage does not pose any clear & present danger to human beings & may even be classified as “clean water”. Chiefly, these include malfunctioning water supply lines or water related appliances like filters, refrigerators etc.
Category two water damage or “gray water” refers to a water body that is severely contaminated by chemical or biological elements which could cause illness in human beings. This happens due to a collapsed sewage disposal unit or septic tank but may also result from broken dishwashers or washing machines that discharge dirty water.
The final category or category three water damage or “black water” is contamination from bacteria, fungi or viruses which can lead to serious ailments in humans including long term physical damage or even fatality. This kind of contamination results from rising sea levels, overflowing of rivers or streams or stagnation of ground water.
