Water Damage Categories
There are several Categories, or levels, of water damage as defined by the IICRC. The higher the level, the greater the potential contamination. The classification ranges from flooding of clean rainwater, such as would be experienced in a roof leak after heavy rains, all the way to Class IV, which carries raw sewage contamination.
Water Damage Class
Another classification measure frequently used in determining the extent of water damage is called classes. Classes represent the expected rate of evaporation of water. The water damage contractor's ability to determine the water damage class will result in a solid plan of attack to quickly remediate the damage. It also helps contractors determine the equipment required and the size of the restoration crew to be dispatched.
