This is a residential (Class 2 | Cat 3) soft clog fill-up water loss. The toilet internals failed to automatically shut off at height and the water ran for about 30 minutes, flooding out the bathroom and adjacent family room. This Insight Sheet seeks to highlight only the aspects most closely related to extraction activities that would otherwise be required to extract the family room carpet. We intend to explore the following: (a) When and in what qualities anti-microbial treatment would be introduced (b) The merits of blocking furniture in a Cat 3 environment (c) The application of content manipulation by room vs. by hour (d) The appropriate deployment of moving blankets (e) The decontamination of an extraction van and hoses.

Room Dimensions: 12’ x 12’ x 8’

This Insight Sheet exists to clarify the activities associated with the first five days of a fire loss. This does not seek to include or make concessions for all equipment and/or activities as it relates to a loss of this nature.

Question: Why would you use CON LAB in a situation where the CLN-R techs are moving the furniture? I realize I'm a smaller company, but do large companies really send a separate, lower-paid contents crew to move furniture after the CLN-R techs extract?
