Category 2 flooding will usually come from toilet bowls with urine, water discharge from dishwashers or washing machines, sump pump failures and other water that should go through the sanitation system. Any areas that have been contaminated by the water will need to be removed to prevent possible mould growth and mitigate and further damage to your property..
Category 3: Also known as "Black Water" refers to flooding from an extremely unsanitary source which contains harmful bacteria and fungi which will cause severe discomfort or sickness.
