How Does the Water Damage Restoration Process Work?
The first step is to remove standing water from flooring, wet carpet and other affected materials. Once all the water is removed, dehumidifiers, air movers and other specialized equipment are used to dry the affected area. This typically takes 2 to 5 days, depending on but not limited to saturation time, type of materials and atmospheric conditions. We use moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras to determine when your home is thoroughly dry.
How Long Should the Water Cleanup Take?
Full restoration consists of two major phases. The first, mitigation, consists of demolition, cleaning and drying the structure. This phases typically takes 2 to 5 days. The second phase, repairs can take anywhere from a couple days to 4 weeks depending on the degree of damage and lead time for materials. Certain materials like Cabinets, Custom Wood, High End Floorings can take extended time to ship. We will work with and your insurance provider to get your property back to normal as quickly as possible.
How Much Does it Cost to Fix Water Damage?
The cost of water damage cleanup depends on the size of the flooded area and amount of time needed to handle the water repair. If your insurance policy covers the water damage you are only responsible for your deductible. The average water loss is just over $7,000. When properly dried in a timely manner you can prevent secondary damages or more costly issues, like mold.
What are the Different Categories of Water?
- Clean water – Category 1 – Poses no harm to people. This includes water damage caused from any fresh water supply, water heater, sink overflow, appliance malfunction.
- Gray water – Category 2 – Can cause harm and illness to people. This includes water damage which has significant amounts of contamination, biological, chemical, or physical.
- Black water – Category 3 – Can cause severe harm or illness to people. Black water is highly unsanitary and contains pathogenic agents. Black water typically comes from beyond the trap, sewage backups, ground water, etc.
Can Water Damage Cause Mold?
Water damage certainly has the potential to cause mold growth. Mold thrives in moist environments with any moisture, especially high humidity areas. In order to keep energy efficiency, modern homes are insulated to reduce loss of energy. This also allows for moisture to stay hidden and not dry if not inspected properly.
Can Water Damage be Hidden? If so, What are the Signs?
Water damage is most often hidden. Some common signs of water intrusion are paint peeling, MDF base swelling, particle boards swelling, condensation, musky odors, damp or wet carpet, etc.
