Water damage in your home can come from a variety of sources. Many times those sources will determine just how easy or difficult the spill will be to clean up.
Water damage restoration is never as easy as simply wiping up the water. There are certain steps, in a certain order, that must be taken to insure a thorough job. Many novices don’t know everything they should be looking for, which is why a professional service should be brought in for medium sized and larger jobs.
Water is basically broken down into three types:
Clean Water is water that is free of contaminants and poses no threat to humans (such as a leaky water pipe or overflowing sink).
Grey Water is mildly contaminated and may pose some measure of risk if ingested (dishwasher or laundry water would be examples)
Black Water, which is sewage based and could result in serious illness or even death if consumed.
Obviously, Clean Water poses the least threat, and is the easiest to remediate. Grey or Black Water should always be dealt with by a professional.
When you stop to consider that the house will have to have the water extracted, every surface completely dried, cleaned, disinfected, sanitized, cleaned again, as well as any repair to structure or possessions and possible mold remediation…..it becomes almost imperative to call in professional help.
