As in the case of floods or waterlogging, the damage could be slow or rapid. Spotting on surfaces, which appears to be harmless at first, can be the first sign of damage. Water is responsible for a significant portion of property damage each year. Worse, most insurance policies will not cover water damage repair without an addendum and/or a fee.
People and businesses who have been harmed by large-scale flooding may be eligible for government grants to help cover some of their losses.
The three types of water damage are as follows:
o Clean water, also known as white water, is water that does not pose a health risk to people, and its sources include water-supply pipes, domestic piping overflows or blockages, and electronic equipment malfunctions.
o Grey Water: This category contains high levels of contaminants, chemicals, microorganisms, or pollutants, all of which can cause illness if ingested or even exposed to. For example, water from dishwashing machines or washing machines/dryers, toilet discharge including urine (non-faecal), and so on.
o Black Water: Black water is filthy and may include viruses, bacteria, fungi, and other pathogens. Water from streams, rivers, stagnant water, seawater in the event of storms or typhoons, and other sources of water damage are included in this category. Grey water that has been stagnant for a long time and has not been treated or removed could be classified as black water, regardless of colour, content, or odour.
