Water is often described as the most destructive single element to properties. The longer the water damage remains, the worse the effects, which can include illness (even death in the case of class 4 water) and structural property weakness.
Water damage is classed into four categories by qualified drying experts, ranging from clean to red.
If the water in your property results from a sanitary source that is safe to ingest it is termed clean water. Examples would include broken water pipes, rainwater or water supply issues.
Water with moderate levels of contamination such as dirty bath water, aquarium water or discharges from dishwasher/washing machines is termed Grey water. If clean water has been left to stagnate for 2-7 days it will move to the grey classification.
High levels of contamination including all sewage incidents, sea water, river or stream water is termed black water. If grey water has been left to stagnate for 2-5 days it will move to the black classification. This kind of water will potentially contain unsafe levels of microbes and all children under 5 years old, elderly or those with allergies or respiratory systems should stay away from the site until the property has been dried.
If the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) deems the water to be a hazardous substance, then the water is classed as red. Red water has the potential to cause sickness, debilitating damage or death. Examples of red water would include water contaminated by radioactive material, fuel or oil, mutagenic chemicals, solvents or heavy metals.
