Water damage can happen unexpectedly as a result of storms or thanks to water leaks coming from the kitchen sink or bathroom.

So How Alarmed Should You Be When You Find Water Damage in Your Home?
All water damage is potentially harmful, but there are two key aspects to consider: how long the water has been sitting there and what type of water it is. To understand the types of water damage, consider the following:
- Clean water- typically comes from water heaters or a pipe, and its bacteria load is less concerning.
- Gray water can come from an appliance such as your washing machine or dishwasher but may contain chemicals and waste.
- Black water usually comes from outside the home following a storm or a sewage issue. It can require extensive cleanup and remediation.
