Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 IICRC Levels & Classes Involved in Liquid Destruction. Category 2. This categoryof liquid used to be calledgrey water, and is described as having a level of contaminates that may cause illness or discomfort if ingested. Sources include dishwasher or washing machine overflows, flush from sink drains, and toilet overflow with some urine but not feces. CATERGORY 1 Category 3. This is the worst classification and is grosslyunsanitary. It could cause severe illness or death if ingested. It used to be calledblack water, and sources include sewer backup, flooding from rivers or streams, toilet overflow with feces, and stagnant liquid that has begun to support bacterial growth. WATER DAMAGE CATEGORIES CATERGORY 3 The lowest and easiest todeal with, this has a slowevaporation rate. Only partof a room or area was affected,there is little or no wet carpet, and the moisture has only affected materials with a lowpermeance rate, such asplywood or concrete. Category 1. This is liquid froma clean and sanitary source, such as faucets, toilet tanks, drinking fountains, etc. But, category one can quickly degrade into category two. With a fast evaporationrate, this level affectsan entire room,carpeting, or cushioning, thewetness has wicked up the walls at least 12, and there is moisture remaining in structuralmaterials. CATERGORY 2 CLASSES OF DESTRUCTION Class 1 Class 2 Class 3 Class 4 This class has thefastest evaporation rate,and ceilings, walls,insulation, carpet andsub-floors are allsaturated. The liquidmay have come fromoverhead. This class is labeled as specialty drying situations,which means there hasbeen enough liquid andtime to saturate materialswith very low permeance,such as hardwood, brick, or stone.
