Water Damage Repair and Restoration

Whether it is due to a natural disaster or a broken pipe in your home, water damage can be dangerous and it can disturb the flow of your entire life. Water damage can, in the short term, displace a family and often ruin valuables that have to be repaired and others that cannot be replaced. Either way, it can be very costly, so the repair and restoration process has to be properly dealt with to minimize the potential blow. ​Besides the obvious, what does water damage do? Well, obviously your leather items would shrink, wood would warp, and otherwise, carpets may begin to smell or have to be properly dried. But it goes beyond that, which is why many people chose to hire professionals, like those at Florida Serv Pro to take care of all of the fine details. ​When you hire a professional, there are a number of things that their equipment can do about water damage restoration that the typical citizen would not think.

First of all, they have to dry out the carpets; they have heavy duty fans that will dry them out quickly and more efficiently. This allows you to salvage what you can and it will also prevent mold growth. Wet vacuums and pumps are used to dry all surfaces for maximum water damage restoration.

​Secondly, all carpet and padding are pulled up and the best parts salvaged whenever possible. This must be done to protect you from the mold that may have already developed. It also helps to determine whether carpets are in good condition or if they need to be replaced. It is a way to salvage, preserve and protect the floors beneath. ​The right technicians assess everything when performing water damage restoration services. They accurately assess important documents, artwork, furniture, draperies, computers, appliances, and otherwise bring all of your personal belongings back to pre-water damage condition wherever possible.

​And finally, water damage restoration cleans and dehumidifies the area. A professional team will disinfect all affected areas to kill mold, mildew, and bacteria; this will keep you safe and healthy long after services are completed. Water damage restoration is designed to help you to get back to your life, minimizing interruption and putting everything back to order for you.

THE THREE CATEGORIES OF WATER DAMAGE TO YOUR HOME

Category 1 – Clean Water
This refers to flooding from a source of water that does pose no threat to human life. This can be a water supply line or a water heater; faucets supply lines, dishwasher supply lines, washing machine supply line, toilet supply lines and other supply lines in the walls. When treated quickly, we can often save most if not all of your flooring, walls, and contents.

Category 2 – Grey Water
This refers to flooding from a source of water that contains a significant degree of biological, chemical, or physical contaminants. This can cause sickness and extensive damage to your property as the water comes from toilet bowls with urine. It can also come from dishwashers or washing machines, sump pump failures and other water that should flow through the sanitation system. Wherever this contamination has flowed, must be removed to prevent possible mold growth and mitigate and further damage to your property.

Category 3 – Black Water
This refers to flooding from an extremely unsanitary source which contains harmful bacteria and fungi that will cause severe discomfort or sickness; usually from sewage backup in your toilet or sink. It may also come from seawater, rising water from rivers or streams, ground surface water entering your home or standing “Grey Water” that was not promptly removed. To treat this type of flooding requires extremely specialized equipment and training and will often require mold remediation after dry out is completed.
