Water Damage can Come From Many Sources

Water damage can occur from multiple sources, including broken water heaters, toilet, dishwasher, or burst pipes during the winter. When a pipe bursts, it can affect areas of your home which may go unnoticed. You come home and find you have a flooded basement.

One of the most common sources of water damage is from a flooded basement or a flooded crawl space. A home or building with its contents can be damaged in a short matter of time if the water source or potential damage isn’t inspected as early as possible. We use the latest water removal equipment to begin the immediate water extraction process. This is a process you don’t want to try yourself. Once the water removal has taken place we can begin the evaporation and dehumidification process, aka the drying process.

Our Customers Love Us

OUTSTANDING!!! Fred and his team were professional, prompt, responsive and went way above and beyond in the services they provided. I contacted them to assist with water damage from a pipe that burst. His team handled the cleanup and water mitigation flawlessly. He always stayed in communication and responded to my calls, texts and questions. A week later I had a leak at another property and Fred was my first call. He handled the 2nd house as well and even identified additional things that needed to be addressed with the furnace, roof and mold. I’d give 6 stars if possible. ******
Call Fred. He’ll get it done!

Helpful Tips

Safety should be the first step when assessing water damage on your own. Structural damage that can lead to a collapse may or may not be evident, so always check before entering an area with water. Keep all power off in the damaged area until an electrician gives the go-ahead for safety reasons.

Before you call the insurance company to get the claims process started, take photos of any floodwater in the home and save damaged personal items. Having a list of damaged or lost personal items, including purchase date, value, and if possible, receipts, which will make completing your claim more smooth and efficient when dealing with insurance adjusters. Removing wet items immediately will lower the chances that mold will begin to grow.

How To Dry & Remove Moisture

Step 1. Take moisture readings of the affected chambers and all other porous materials with a moisture meter. Materials such as soft wood should have a maximum moisture content of around 12- 15%, drywall and carpet should have a maximum moisture content of about 8%

Step 2. Set the target goal for each material to no more than their maximum moisture content.

Step 3. Determine the water category and classification. Water from a leaking pipe or faucets is a category 1 Water damage. Water from a malfunction dishwasher is a category 2 Water damage. Water or sewage from a toilet bowl is a Category 3 water damage. Water with chemicals, electricity and other contaminants are category 4 or special water category and must be handled by certified professionals.

Determine The Water Classification:

If 15-35% of the area is affected you have a Class 1 water loss, regardless of the water category. If more than 35% but less than 50% of the area is affected you have a

Class 2 water loss. If more than 50% of the area is affected you have a Class 3 water loss. Now that you know how to determine water class and category let’s begin the drying process, extract as much water as possible from the affected area, carpet and pad, for Category 3 loss, remove all affected porous materials like carpet, pad, drywall, and furnishings made of MDF materials, apply antimicrobial, clean the affected material, install Air Movers and dehumidifiers, contained the affected area with containment barrier chamber and zippered entrance.
