This bathroom in Middleton, WI experienced a sewage backup that required our Service Technicians to do a flood cut to the contaminated area of the drywall.
A flood cut is a term that describes the partial removal of drywall up to a certain height. This process involves the cutting and removal of a section of drywall. The cut is typically made approximately 2 feet above the highest level the water reached. The purpose is to allow the removal of insulation and other building materials and allow access to framing and salvageable materials for drying and sanitizing.
When water damage is considered Category 3 water, it is grossly contaminated and can contain pathogenic, toxigenic, or other harmful agents. Such water may contain silt, organic material, and harmful bacteria. Materials affected by Category 3 water are unsalvageable and need to be removed.
