  • Water originating from either a broken pipe or a burst supply line to an appliance.
  • May deteriorate in cleanliness when in contact with structural surfaces and content materials.
  • The only Category of water loss where you are able to utilize in place drying.
  • Statistically, there is no such thing as clean water, as once the water comes into contact with carpet, it is gray water.

Category 2 – Gray water

  • Water originating from an appliance discharge, or from inside an appliance.
  • Water containing a significant degree of chemical, biological and/or physical contamination.
  • Cushion (carpet pad) must be removed and replaced.
  • Carpet that is saved must be cleaned with hot water extraction.
  • Clean water becomes gray water after 72 hours.

Category 3 – Black water

  • Grossly unsanitary water containing pathogenic agents arising from sewage or other contaminated water sources. 
  • Water originating from a source that poses substantial threat to human health.
  • Carpet and cushion must be removed and disposed. All porous materials must be disposed of.

Water Damage Classes


Class 1 – Slow rate of evaporation

  • Small size water loss.
  • Water losses that affect only part of a room or area.
  • Losses with low-permeance/porosity materials (e.g. plywood, particleboard, structural wood, VCT, concrete).
  • Little or no wet carpet and/or cushion is present.
  • Minimum moisture is absorbed by materials, which release that moisture slowly.
  • On hot dry days this class is an ideal candidate for open system dehumidification.

Class 2 – Fast rate of evaporation

  • Medium size water loss.
  • Water losses that affect the entire room of carpet and cushion.
  • Water has wicked up walls less than 24 inches.
  • There is moisture remaining in the structural materials (e.g. plywood, particleboard, structural wood, VCT, concrete).

Class 3 – Fastest rate of evaporation

  • Large size water loss.
  • Carpet and pad with water from coming from above or water wicking more than 24” up walls. 
  • Ceilings, walls, insulation, carpet, cushion and subfloor in virtually the entire area are saturated.

Class 4 – Specialty drying situations, focus on bound water

  • Involves wet materials that are very low permeance/porosity (e.g. hardwoods, subfloors, plaster, brick, concrete, stone, crawlspaces).
  • Typically there are deep pockets of saturation that normally require very low specific humidity.
  • In laymen's terms a class four water loss involves drying hardwood flooring, concrete or some such material.
