Water Damage Restoration
Water damage refers to the destructive processes that result when water intrudes into a building and its components. Examples of water damage include rotting wood, oxidation of metal (rust), microbial growth, and de-lamination of composite building materials. Once water seeps into building materials such as wood, dry wall, or masonry, a natural chemical reaction starts to occur, breaking down the integrity of the material. If left unaddressed, water damage can cause the stability of a structure to be compromised, making it unsafe for human occupancy. In addition, grey water, or water that contains significant chemical, biological, or physical elements, may quickly become hazardous to human exposure as microbes and other contaminants begin to grow to dangerous levels when water has been standing in excess of 48-72 hours. Many highly contagious illnesses are connected to water damage including skin infections, hepatitis A, salmonella, eye infections, respiratory infections, and Weil’s disease, as well as liver, blood, and kidney issues.
Water Damage Restoration Solutions
The first step in water damage restoration is emergency mitigation. This includes locating the source of and eliminating the influx of intruding water, as well as an assessment of the damage and danger to humans. These services should only be performed by trained, licensed professionals. Once the damage and health concerns have been assessed, drying and dehumidification services should be performed on all affected areas. A quick assessment of equipment, documents, and other items can determine whether or not contents restoration is possible or necessary. In addition, mold remediation services can minimize the long-term health effects of microbial growth associated with water damage. Once your structure is deemed safe for human occupation, temporary power and HVAC services can get your business back online and back to work, minimizing business interruption.
