Water Damage Repair, Clean Up and Restoration
Water damage can be understood in three ways.
Category 1 is sanitary or potable water. Category 2 contains contamination from a water supply line break or pipe break. Category 3 water is any water that has touched the ground and enters a structure such as storm and flood runoff or sewage. Damage restoration within any one of these categories involves a multi-step process. When home or business owners attempt to clean up and “fix” the water problem unseen problems develop such as incomplete drying, hidden areas of contamination and the untreated structural supports holding mold and the resulting toxic air and mildew.
