Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

3 types of contaminated water - Category 1

There is just not a good place for the HVAC unit or hot water heater.

If placed inside the home (typically in the hall closet), they leak and leave wet carpet.

In the garage, they leak and leave wet concrete.

But that's not all. This leak traveled under the walls to compromise the laundry room and kitchen.

Thankfully, this homeowner called SERVPRO of Wichita Falls. Our professionally trained team of water restoration specialists quickly responded and immediately started to get this home dry.

The homeowner was also thankful that this is what we call a Category 1 water loss.

Category 1: "Clean Water"

Category 1 water is from a clean source like a broken water supply line or leaking faucet. If not treated quickly, this water can turn into category 2 or 3, depending on length of time, temperature, and contact with surrounding contaminants.

  • Water from a clean source like a broken water line
  • If left untreated, can degrade into category 2 or 3

If you have a water leak in your home or business, call the water restoration specialists at SERVPRO of Wichita Falls 24/7.
