The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC) have developed the industry standard for water damage mitigation. They categorize water damage into three categories: Category 1, Category 2 and Category 3, each of which needs to handled differently.
According to the IICRD, if the source of the water is from a clean water source, such as a plumbing supply line, it is Category 1. Category 2 (gray water damage) involves water that may contain chemicals or other contaminants that could cause discomfort or sickness. Category 2 water sources include appliance discharge, a broken waterbed or fish tank or overflows from toilet bowls. Category 3 (black water) contains pathogenic agents and is grossly unsanitary because large amounts of bacteria can enter the interior environment and pose potentially serious health risks to the occupants. Examples include toilet backflow that originate from beyond the toilet trap, flooding from seawater, ground surface water or rising water from rivers and streams. Category 3 also includes Category 2 water that is not removed quickly enough.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says, "Stop the water leak quickly and begin restoration during the first 24 hours. It is important to dry water damaged areas and items within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth".
