Category 3 Water Damage in Parkland, Florida

The IICRC, Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, describes Category 3 Water as “highly contaminated and could cause death or serious illness if consumed by humans.” In other words, Category 3 Water is seriously dangerous and includes sewage, rising flood water, and long standing water. For a woman in Parkland, Florida, lamentably, this grossly unsanitary water saturated part of her home, resulting in major water damage after the water from a broken pipe stood too long.

Unfortunately, the water was not discovered right away, and by the time Joe Taylor Restoration was called upon to deal with the problem, the water had permeated the walls and baseboards and mold had begun to grow.

Dehumidifiers, air movers, and HEPA air scrubbers were deployed to deal with the standing water, and the mold was addressed with removal of affected materials, containment, and cleaning. By the time Joe Taylor Restoration was done, the water and mold were eradicated from the home, and a once unhealthy situation was returned to a safe and sanitary environment.
