Our Approach to Water Damage Repair
Water damage restoration and repair involve water extraction and the use of drying equipment to restore your home or business to its pre-damage state. This process can take several days or longer, depending on the time lapse between the damage occurring and us being called to the site.
Halting the Flood Damage
The process starts with damage assessment and identifying the source of the water issue. Be it an appliance malfunction, burst pipe, or sewage backup, the initial step is to halt the water flow and fix the root cause.
All standing water and/or sewage from the impacted area need to be removed. The amount of water, its type, and duration of standing vary with each situation. In certain circumstances, if the water volume is considerable, it might need to be pumped out.
Whenever feasible, wet structures are dried in place. Any materials that cannot be restored are removed.
We utilize specialized air movers and dehumidifiers to dry salvageable saturated structures. Properly controlling this process is crucial to drying the saturated structures promptly and preventing further harm. Initiating the drying process immediately can prevent water from spreading, thus minimizing the level of structure saturation.
Sanitizing and Deodorizing
The affected areas are thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized to ensure mold and mildew do not grow once our work is done.
Four Levels of Water Damage
Water damage is further categorized based on the time it will take for the water to completely evaporate from the area. The level of water damage guides the cleanup actions and the equipment needed for drying the damaged area.
Slow Evaporation – Class 1
Class 1 water damage impacts a part of a room and the affected items are primarily non-porous, not absorbing significant moisture. Areas with tiles, hard surfaces, and other non-porous materials classify as Class 1 water damage.
Fast Evaporation – Class 2
Class 2 water damage impacts a broader area, including items that moderately absorb water such as carpets, drywall, wood, and fabrics. This class also includes cases where water has seeped into walls, less than 24 inches high.
Fastest Evaporation – Class 3
Class 3 water damage occurs when the source of damage is overhead, affecting a wide area. Both absorbent and non-absorbent materials are exposed to a significant amount of water in this scenario, causing water to penetrate walls, ceilings, insulation, carpets, fabrics, and other porous materials.
Specialized Drying Techniques – Class 4
Class 4 water damage occurs when water has infiltrated an area, making drying and restoration especially challenging. This class of damage may affect both porous and nonporous materials like plaster, concrete, and hardwood. It also includes areas that are difficult to access or that require notably low humidity levels to dry.
Three Categories of Water Damage
All water damage is not alike. The health risk can escalate depending on the type of water causing the damage. Water damage is categorized based on the cleanliness of the water.
Clean Water – Category 1
Damage caused by water from sources like sinks, showers, tubs, and supply lines is deemed clean water and does not pose a health risk to humans and animals. However, clean water can evolve into grey water after 48 hours.
Grey Water – Category 2
Damage caused by water from appliances such as washing machines, dishwashers, and toilets, containing only urine, is moderately unsanitary. This water, called grey water, can contain chemical, biological, and physical contaminants that can cause moderate illness and health problems in humans and animals. Grey water can transition into black water after 72 hours if left untreated.
Black Water – Category 3
Damage caused by water from sewage backups, toilets containing feces, or flood waters from lakes, streams, rivers, and ground water is highly unsanitary, contains dangerous bacteria and biological matter, and can cause serious illness and health issues in humans and animals. Because the exact source of black water is often unknown, the quality and content of the water is unknown
