We begin by getting rid of the standing water in the space. When this has been cleared out, the process of drying will start.
Flooring will need to be removed in order to dry the area completely. Our crew will then use dehumidifiers to eliminate any residual moisture in the area.
Your belongings will be thoroughly dried and restored to pre-damaged conditions if possible (depending on the condition of the water, your items might be lost). The restoration stage will fix and go over any damages inflicted to your property's structure too. This is the stabilizing phase of Restoration 1's water damage repair services.
Different Types of Water Damage
If your house undergoes damage from supply lines (like appliances, faucets, pipes, etc.) this is known as Category 1. Category 1 is called clean water since the source isn't harmful when it comes in contact. With this type of discharge, the professionals at Restoration 1 will be able to save most, if not all, of your floors, walls or other household goods that got wet if we're contacted immediately.
Category 2 comes from water damage that contains biological, chemical and physical contaminants that are dangerous to humans, and this can lead to extensive wreckage on your property. This can come from toilets with waste in them, water discharge from dishwashers or washing machines, sump pump malfunctions and any other water that runs through a sanitation system. Areas that have been contaminated from this kind of water will need to be removed immediately in order to stop mould growth.
Black water, or Category 3, is water that is extremely unsanitary and has dangerous bacteria and fungi. This is usually caused by sewage back up from sinks, toilets and tubs/showers. Other originators include rising water from rivers or streams, seawater, ground surface water or water from Category 2 that was not treated and has been in place for 2-3 days. Damage repair for Category 3 requires certain equipment and tried-and-true methods to eradicate. With Category 3, a mould remediation service is required to ensure that any bacteria and fungi won't spread.
