Water Damage

Water damage can wreak havoc on your home if proper water removal and drying doesn’t become a priority after it’s discovered. While you likely already know the importance of proper water mitigation following a water loss, there’s still a lot that may surprise you about water damage situations.

Here are some essentials you should know about water damage remediation. The more polluted the water, the worse your situation. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) classifies water into three categories in its S500 Standard: Category 1, Category 2 and Category 3. Category 1 is generally sanitary water, Category 2 is significantly contaminated water, and Category 3 is grossly contaminated water. The category of water on any loss will dictate how it’s restored as well as how much can be salvaged.

Mold can begin to grow within 48 hours. All it needs to thrive is dampness, darkness and a food source (i.e. wood, drywall, etc.).  Mold doesn’t just have the potential to be debilitating to your home’s structure, but to your health as well.

Mold actually needs 5 perfect conditions to grow in 48-72 hours

  1. Moisture
  2. Food source
  3. Prime temperature
  4. No/minimal air movement
  5. No/minimal light
