What is Water Damage Restoration
Water damage is when you have a system, such as your HVAC, or appliance, like a dishwasher, that breaks or cracks causing water to flow out or leak. In return, you may be left with mold, rotting wood, rust, etc.
The good news is that water damage can be fixed with water removal and water damage restoration by one of our experienced and fast technicians.
The 3 Tiers of Water Damage
Did you know that even water damage has its own classifications?
Having an understanding of water damage categories will help you have a working knowledge of what’s happening to your home, and better explain your needs to one of our trusted technicians.
Clean water – This tier of water refers to uncontaminated and less harmful water from sources like a sink faucet.
Greywater – For this category of water, it calls for being more proactive about getting help to remove or restore the items and rooms affected. Greywater is contaminated water that could be from a dishwasher or toilet. Most importantly, you’ll want to be quicker to call Only In Houston representatives to schedule our services to evaluate the area and prevent you from getting sick.
Blackwater – Evacuating and getting water damage restoration is a MUST. Blackwater can make you ill or even be life-threatening to everyone in your home. This tier of water contains everything from fungi to raw sewage and can come from a source like a sewer backup.
What is the process for water damage restoration?
Inspection and Assessment
The water damage restoration process should be fast, efficient, and end with quality work. That’s what you can expect from the contractors we work with. As soon as you tell us your emergency service is for water damage, we will have one of our trusted technicians come out to assess and inspect the damage, and educate you on their findings and next steps.
After the inspection and assessment, our helpful expert will start with water removal. This is a high priority on our list because it helps reduce the chances of mold forming within the next 24 to 48 hours. Some tools our techs may use to remove water from your home as prevention methods are wet/dry vacuums or even submersible pumps.
Drying and Dehumidification
The next step in the water damage restoration process is drying and dehumidification. Our experts will check moisture levels while using air movers to dry out your home to prevent warping, breaking, or other hazardous outcomes from the home being too wet.
Cleaning and Sanitation
When your home is fully dry, we’ll start the cleaning and sanitation process. We want to make sure you’re safe from air-borne and physical hazards in the home after water damage has struck. We use three different cleaning methods such as dry cleaning, and spray-and-wipe cleaning with top-of-the-line equipment to get the job done. We choose which approach we’ll take when cleaning your property based on the severity of the damage.
The final step is restoration. Water damage restoration is used to get your home back to its original state, but we always strive to make it feel and look better than before. In this step, you can expect to have materials that were removed to be replaced and parts of your property that were permanently damaged to be replaced too.
When should I call a technician about water damage?
9 times out of 10, we recommend you always call a technician to provide water damage restoration or water removal services. There’s no job too big or small that a damage restoration technician can’t handle.
