Cat 3 Water
After a hurricane, which causes major flooding, we cut everything out. The only thing remaining is the studs and the areas that didn’t touch the water. This is an image of a home previously flooded by water.
“Flood waters resulting from hurricanes, tropical storms, rising rivers, or tsunamis may be significantly more contaminated than flood waters from clean sources such as potable water or rainwater that leaks into buildings. The S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration, published by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC), categorizes water by level of contamination, from potable water (Category 1) to grossly contaminated water (Category 3) (IICRC 2006). The IICRC considers all water originating from sea water, ground or surface water, rising rivers and streams, and wind-driven rain from hurricanes and tropical storms to be Category 3”
