“At 2:30 AM we woke to a flood in our entire downstairs. I called CFW’s 800-number from a Google search (just by chance) and their project manager, Matt, was at our house by 3:30 AM!! His crews were professional and cleaned up after themselves. I can guarantee we have no mold due to their response. I was delighted with them and highly recommend them.” – Margaret A
Category 1 water intrusions are the result of compromised sanitary water supply lines. In order for a situation to remain Category 1, water must not have sat in a structure for more than 72 hours, and materials affected must be clean and well maintained.
Water that contains a significant degree of chemical, biological and/or physical contamination is said to be Category 2. If the water source was originally Category 1, the water will degrade to Category 2 after 72 hours. When water is a Category 2, it will become a Category 3 after 48 hours.
When water intrusion results from a grossly unsanitary source, carries disease causing agents, or when water has dwelled in a structure for more than 120 hours, it is said to be Category 3. Regardless of the initial source, water can be deemed Category 3 if it is allowed to dwell in the structure for five days.
