Following the onset of the initial water damage, comes mold growth, which can occur within 48 hours. This can lead to serious health problems associated with respiratory sickness among other issues. Molds can easily grow almost anywhere, and depending on the humidity of the location it can grow and spread very rapidly.

Water Damage is categorized in one of three levels, by how polluted the water source was that caused the damage. They are as follows:
CATEGORY 1: Water Damage from a clean water source, like a fresh water line for a dishwasher. This water will not cause illness or any ill effects.
CATEGORY 2: Water Damage that may cause illness through contact with other contaminants.
CATEGORY 3: Water Damage that is highly contaminated. Contact can cause severe illness or death. Sewage back up, an over flowing toilet, or storm waters.
Even though water damage may start out as Category 1, it has potential to change to Category 2 or 3 if not contained immediately. Time is of the essence. With water damage, more contamination means that the restoration process will be more aggressive in cleaning the structure and property. Bottom line, water damage can be dangerous and costly.
