OC Water Damage Restoration

Dealing with water damage can be difficult and overwhelming. That is why it is important to call a professional the moment you suspect your home of water damage.

OC Fresh Carpet Care is highly trained in Water Damage Restoration. They will survey your home and recommend the next plan of action. There are different types of water that lead to water damage and it is important to know the difference. Knowing what type is what will help protect you and your family.

There are three types of water damage.

Type 1 (Clean Water): This type is from a sanitary source such as a faucet, bottled water or clean toilet bowl water. If you come in contact with it you should not be alarmed but still must address the water. Even though it is the least severe type, without proper handling and clean up it can quickly degrade to a type 2 or 3.

Type 2 (Grey Water): This type could cause illness if ingested. Common type 2 water sources are over flowed dishwashers, toilet over flows (without solid matter) or a washing machine over flow. If your skin touches it do not be alarmed but make sure your children or pets do not drink the water. If this water is left standing for a period between 48 to 72 hours it can be categorized as type 3.

Type 3 (Black Water): This is the type that can cause serious harm. This type can include toilet water beyond the trap or that includes matter, river or floodwater and any water that has been standing for over 72 hours or has begun to have microbial growth. This is the most severe. If you suspect you have Black Water, Type 3, call a professional immediately.
