Phoenix Has Flood Damage
Flood Damage Expectations During Mitigation
Flood waters can cause a lot of damage. Although the water could look fairly clean it is considered "black water" or "Category 3" water damage. Whether or not it black or grey in color does not determine how much bacteria and other contaminates might be in the water. Therefore, any materials that might be contaminate are removed.
