When assessing how much water damage restoration will cost, professionals begin by determining how the water damages occurred and classifying the damage based on several factors.

A water damage restoration company will also categorize water damage by class, such as Class 1, Class 2, Class 5, etc. Class of water damage indicates the degree of water damage involved whether Category 1, 2, 3, etc.
