Water Removal & Mitigation

water damage

If you have water damage it is imperative to remove all bound water and affected building materials immediately.

In 24-48 hours a drying process should be conducted to prevent mold growth from occurring. The other important concern to consider is secondary damages. Secondary damages could include wicking or cupping of floors, degrading of building finishes, carpet de-lamination and a host of other problems associated with water intrusion.

Moisture mapping and monitoring are completed regularly and daily of the water damaged area to ensure that proper structural drying is being conducted. Relative humidity and specific moisture need to be stabilized to provide proper structural drying techniques.

There are 3 specific water loss categories that are recognized by the IICRC, a "gold standard" in the water damage restoration industry. They are as follows:

water damage




Category 1:Clean water line break, or a clean water source. Example: A washing machine line or refrigerator supply line water leak.

water damage




Category 2:Also referred to as grey water, this typically comes from a supplied water line leak, a toilet overflow or water that passes through building materials.

Category 3: This is known as black water. Examples of this type of water damage are a sewage backup or grossly contaminated seawater. Also fitting in to this category is if water damage has been observed and the utilization of drying equipment is delayed 48 hours or more. Most soft goods and building materials (drywall, carpeting, vinyl flooring, etc.) would need to be removed.
