Anything that has been touched by Category 3 water must be removed from the structure regardless of the appearance of the water. In other words the water might be clear or gray in color and contain no apparent fecal matter and still be very dangerous. Carpet, pad, sheet rock, furniture, toys, and all other items must be disposed of. All remaining materials must then be pressure washed, disinfected and dried.
Category 3 losses include sewage; toilet backflows that originate from beyond the trap regardless of visible content or color; all forms of flooding from seawater; surface water, RAIN WATER, or other weather related events.
