Common Causes of Water Damage

Water Leaks

Water leaks may not seem like a big deal, but they can cause significant damage to your home if left unchecked.

Air Conditioning Units

Water from leaking air conditioners can cause problems with carpeting and flooring.

Burst Pipes

A burst pipe is an issue that anyone who owns their own home will eventually have to deal with.

Clogged Gutters

Rainwater doesn't flow out of your gutters when they are blocked. When this happens, it will cause problems with the house.

Overuse of Water

Water damage is often caused by overuse of water, such as leaving a hose running while you're away or taking excessively long showers.

Leaked Washing Machine Water Pipe

If your pipes break, your laundry room will get very wet in minutes. You need to shut off the water source before this happens.

Flooding

Water damage is often caused by flooding, from natural disasters like hurricanes or flooding due to faulty drainage.

Blocked Drains

When a drain is clogged, it may lead to water damage inside the property.

Leaking Water Heater

Water heaters can begin to age and break down after years of use, which leads to leaks that can destroy flooring and electrical systems in your home.

Roof and Attic Leaks

Roof and attic leaks are the number one cause of interior leaks, Georgia typically has enough storms every year to where a roof replacement is recommended at least every 20 years.

Classification of Water Damage

The International Institute for Care and Restoration (IICRC) classifies water and flood damage into one of four classes, ranging from 1 to 4. These classes enable restoration businesses to compute the amount of water in your house, the degree of water absorption and damage, as well as predicted drying and repair times.

Class 1

Slow Rate of Evaporation

The majority of the room or space has not been damaged, and there is little to no wet carpet to restore.

The water is drinkable and free of contaminants.

With Class 1 damage, the area will dry with minimal evaporation once the water is removed.

Class 2

Fast Rate of Evaporation

Regardless of the cause, water damage will spread throughout a room if it travels up the walls at least 12" in any carpeted area. Moisture remains in structural components.

It's typically caused by a burst or broken pipe in walls or floors made of drywall or insulating materials.

Class 3

Fastest Rate of Evaporation

The source of Class 3 typically starts from the above classes. The entire area will be saturated, including ceilings, walls, insulation, sub-floors, and carpeting.

Water damage might result in a Class 3 loss if a water main breaks or property leaks due to storm damage or flooding.

Class 4

Speciality Drying Situations

Water can cause Class 4 damage when fully absorbed into non-porous materials such as Plaster, Wood, and Concrete.

Flooding is a typical cause of class 4 damage. With class 4 damage, specialized equipment and a longer drying period are required.

Water Contamination Categories

Water restoration professionals use water categorization to assess water contamination levels in a home or structure. All water contains microorganisms. The more of them in the water, the less safe it is to contact.

Category 1

Clean Water

Water in Category 1 is clean, having been minimally contaminated. It comes from a sanitary water source in the immediate region. Rainwater, toilet tank water, and melting snow and ice are all possible sources of this category. This water is generally acceptable and typically derives from a home's plumbing system or water heater.

Category 2

Gray Water

Category 2 water is frequently contaminated and may cause sickness. Dishwashers, washing machines, aquariums, waterbeds, and toilets with urine are all examples of Category 2 water. Category 2 water can be highly toxic to elders, children, and pets. The drying process should begin immediately.

Category 3

BlackWater

Category 3 water is highly contaminated and may contain toxigenic, pathogenic, or highly hazardous chemicals such as pesticides or pollutants. After exposure to category 3 water, individuals can become seriously ill. Category 3 water includes sewage; river floods; and wind-driven rain from tropical storms or hurricanes that rise in the ocean.
