Any kind of water damage can be potentially disastrous for your home. However, some are worse than others and cause much more significant problems in both the long and short term. Understanding the different types of water damage helps you act quickly when one of them occurs.
Clean Water Damage
Clean water damage is the least severe of all the types because it is sustained from clean water due to broken pipes or overflowing appliances. While this damage still needs to be addressed, it has the easiest cleanup process. The water is generally free of toxins and other contaminants.
Gray Water Damage
Gray water damage is more severe and dangerous than clean water damage. It’s water that comes out of toilets and washing machines, and it may or not be harmful to come into contact with. Depending on the source, gray water may dry without any additional issues.
Black Water Damage
Black water is the most dangerous of the different types of water damage. It contains sewage or runoff from rivers or other exterior sources. For the most part, your home will need to be completely disinfected after the water has been dried to avoid any health hazards.
