Important Facts About Water Damage That You Must Know
A basement flood may not seem like a huge deal, but the following facts about water damage will help you understand just how serious one can be.

There are generally three types of water that can invade your home: rainwater, fresh water, and sewage water.

Category 1 "Clean Water":This type of water is not hazardous because its origin is a sanitary source such as melted snow or ice, rain, and tub or sink water.

Category 2 "Grey Water":This type of water originates from a contaminated source such as water from dishwashers, washing machines, or toilet bowl overflows.

This water originates from sewage, rising flood water from streams and rivers, and ground surface water.

Notify Your Insurance Company ASAP. Call your insurance company right after the professional water damage company if you discover water damage to your home.

If you are dealing with a flood situation, it can be challenging to know where the water is coming from and how to resolve it without the help of a professional water damage restoration team.
