The IICRC clarifies a loss using Four (4) classes of destruction.
- Class 1: The Lowest and Easiest to deal with. Only part of a room or area was affected, there was little to no carpet and the moisture has only affected materials with a low permanence rate.
- Class 2: Affected entire room, carpeting, or cushioning, the wetness has wicked up the walls 12” and moisture in structural materials.
- Class 3: Affected Ceilings, Wall, insulation, carpet and sub-floors are saturated.
- Class 4: Special Drying situation. Examples may include hardwood floors, brick or stone.
