Overview of the Water Damage Restoration Process
There are three phases to the water damage repairs process: assessment, remediation, and billing. Our team at Bioclean Restoration will guide you through each step of the process to make fixing the mess on your hands as painless, efficient, and timely as possible. Here is a brief overview of each of the three phases.
Water Damage Assessment
This critical first step identifies both the category of water damage and the extent of the problems to determine what remediation methods will be necessary.
The extent of the damage may range across four classes. The least severe is Class 1 damage where there has been a relatively small amount of water to clean up and there is little to no absorption or structural damage. At the other end of the scale, Class 4 damage means there is significant flooding or damage to highly absorptive materials, often in spaces that are difficult to reach.
The three categories of water damage are:
Category One (Clean Water): This kind of water damage is often caused by things like a broken water supply line, a leaking water tank on your toilet, rain, snowmelt, or any other source of clean water.
Category Two (Gray Water): Broken appliances or bathroom fixtures are the most likely culprits in this scenario — your shower or tub is not draining properly; there is a leak under your sink; a faulty dishwasher or washing machine. Gray water contains a limited amount of contaminants — enough to make it unsafe for consumption — and to pose a much more serious health risk than Category One water damage.
Category Three (Black Water): This is the most serious water damage category, and it means you are having an issue with water that contains raw sewage or a higher, more dangerous level of pathogens and bacteria. This water and damage pose a critical threat to your health. Broken sewage pipes or drains from areas where food preparation is done are the most common causes of this kind of water damage.
One of the unfortunate (and common) issues with water damage is that it can escalate from one category to the next. In the right conditions, this can happen very quickly, even in as little as two or three days. For example, a clean water leak that isn’t noticed inside a wall or crawlspace can create standing water which then becomes gray or even black water as bacteria, mold, fungi, and other potentially harmful conditions begin to form. Rotting wood, moldy drywall, and other damages can go unnoticed in some cases for weeks, months, or even longer.
The Basics of Water Damage Remediation
The second phase of the process is remediation. With a dependable assessment of the category and classification of the damage, the Bioclean Restoration team can begin to tear out, clean up, and repair or remodel any damage to restore your home or business to its like-new condition. Our professional remediation teams have tons of experience and a commitment to completing this phase safely, quickly, and with as little disturbance to you, and your family or employees as possible.
Bioclean Restoration specialists may use any of the following during the remediation:
- Water extraction pumps and tools
- Air movers and fans
- Air scrubbers
- Hand and power tools for targeted demolition and tear out
- A full array of tools and materials for remodeling
