Different flooring in storm damage situations

Storm water comes from the outside, through roofs, and even through windows. It is not very clean and can be highly contaminated with bacteria and dirt. The insurance industry sets categories for different types of water damages. Storm water is a Category 3 damage which means it is dirty and contaminated.

There are different types of flooring in a home and depending on the Category of water will determine how it will be cleaned. In 90% of cases of tile, laminate, and other non-porous flooring SERVPRO of Hawaii will be able to clean and save. Carpeting and pad (as pictured) is not salvageable after a Category 3 water damage.
