Restoration Water Damage
Water damage restoration is, quite simply, the restoring of a home or other structure that has been damaged by water to its pre-flood condition.
There are basically three types of water damage that can affect your home, and the solution will depend on the type of water involved.
- Clean Water: water that does not pose a health risk to humans. A leaky faucet or overflowing tub would be an example of clean water
- Gray Water: water that contain certain degrees of chemical, biological, or physical contaminants, and may lead to illness if exposed to or consumed. Toilet bowls and dishwashers would be sources for gray water.
- Black Water: water that is highly contaminated at the source and may result in serious illness or even death if consumed by humans. Sewage and seawater would be examples of this kind of water.
Before undertaking any sort of water damage restoration, you should first know what kind of water you are dealing with. Gray or black water problems will most certainly need to be treated by a professional.
Property damage can be quite extensive as the result of water, in many cases much more so than fire, primarily due to water’s ability to continue causing problems for as long as it is allowed to stand. You will not only need to treat the damaged area, but also look for other areas where the water may have accumulated, such as basements or crawlspaces.
