Types of Water Damage Kelley Klean has been in business for over 30 years and have seen various forms of water damage in residential basements. We can easily handle any issue concerning commercial basement extraction. We understand that every situation is unique, and when our technicians arrive to home, they will take time to evaluate the damage. The most common forms of water damage are, clean water, grey water & black water. The only difference between these types of damage cleanliness of the water and time. A few hours could determine if we need to replace building materials or can use advanced drying systems. That is why it is essential to respond quickly to any damage. Clean Water: This the safest form of water damage. Clean water does not contain contaminants and usually derives from interior water lines. Such lines are pipes and supply lines located in the home. Drying techniques derived from the IICRC can easily be used on building materials and porous materials, and typically takes about 3 days to complete. Grey Water: Grey water is the most common form of water we find in basement settings. If water sits for longer than 24-48 hours, then the water will be classified as ‘grey water’. This type of water typically contains contaminants and come from appliances such as washing machines or hot water heaters. Fortunately, grey water can still be dried using advanced drying techniques. Porous building materials and items can still be salvaged and dried within 72 hours of the time of damage. Black Water: The most toxic form of water, black water is highly contaminated. This type of water can contain sewage and other bio-hazardous materials. If ingested, one could become seriously ill. Water that derives from toilet drains or sewage lines, it will completely destroy any porous material to which it is exposed. The best to way to handle materials that were exposed to black water would be to rip them out and replace them with new. Examples of materials would be carpet, carpet padding, drywall and upholstery.
