Cat I, II or III? Big difference on what you can and should charge. NEVER PUMP WATER! You are leaving money on the table if you do. Know how to word your bid. Also know how many gallons or cubic feet. 10 SF @ 5ft deep is a huge difference from 1800 SF @ 5ft deep.

Zillow is telling my 2,004 sq ft



Just Keep in mind it looks like a 6ft metro rack.

Cat 3 if it has been there for more that 72 hours. HUGE $$$$$$$ Unfortunately if you bid it as Cat 3 some hack will underbid you by not knowing what he/she is doing. WAAAAY to much $$$$$ left on the table sometimes.....

If left untreated for 72 hours, Category 1 water becomes Category 2 water.

If left untreated, Category 2 water becomes Category 3 water in 48 hours or less.

Way to cheap. At those rates, you're making the regional and/or national rich.....
