What is a Category 3 water loss commonly referred to as a black water loss?


Category 3 Water Loss

Category 3 water loss involves water that is grossly contaminated and can contain toxic, pathogenic, or other harmful agents. Such water may carry silt, pesticides, organic matter, regulated materials, heavy metals, or toxic organic substances.

Examples include, but are not limited to toilet backflows, sewage, that originate from beyond the toilet trap regardless of visible content or color, all forms of flooding from seawater, ground surface water and rising water from rivers or streams, and other contaminated water entering or affecting the indoor environment such as wind-driven rain from tropical storms, hurricanes, or other weather-related natural disasters.

Hiring the right Restoration Company and Mold Hygienist is crucial when documenting a water loss. They will provide moisture mapping, lab testing, and protocols necessary to identify hidden damages, validate your claim, and ultimately help a Public Adjuster justify the extent of the damages. He will then be able to provide an estimate that will actually bring you back to pre-loss condition. Call a Experienced Public Adjuster Today for a Free Claim Evaluation! (407) 212-8669
