The main factors that determine the outcome of a flooding incident include:
- Percentage of porous materials affected
- Contamination levels involved
- The quantity and type of appliances in the affected areas

Such materials readily absorb the water that accumulates in your house during a flooding incident. They also collect residues of toxic chemicals and biohazards dissolved in the water.
