Every loss is different, so the cost depends upon the type of water (clean water vs. sewage), the extent of the damage, the amount of moisture and time of exposure. The more water, the dirtier, the more widespread and the longer the area’s been wet, the more it will cost. It also depends upon the time of day, as CATCO’s crews are on stand-by to provide emergency services after normal work hours. The cost is also reflected in the types of materials involved if reconstruction is required. Suffice it to say, a very minimal clean-water loss in a hard-surfaced area might be charged less than $1,000, but an extensive problem with sewage on carpeted, finished areas can easily reach $5,000 and much more if extensive contamination is found and reconstruction is needed.
