Water extraction is one of the most important steps in a water damage restoration project. You must remove the water both quickly and as thoroughly in order to mitigate the loss.
Proper extraction can remove as much as 97% of the water present in carpet and cushion. But, without proper extraction procedures the drying process will be slowed.
Drying the structure is an extremely important aspect in handling a water loss. This involves much more than drying carpet and pad. You will need to locate and dry all affect materials. If the structure is not dried appropriately the damage can progress to include secondary damage and possibly amplification of mold and bacteria. Proper drying procedures can save the property owner and the insurance company thousands of dollars in replacement costs
Water restoration is categorized in three methods:
Clean Water Removal & Restoration
Category one, or clean-water floods originate from sources do not contain harmful bacteria or pathogens pose a substantial threat to humans.
These sources may be from broken pipes or appliances, falling rain or melting snow, or sink or tub overflows that do not hold contaminants. It is important to remove the water as quickly as possible.
With time bacteria and mold that contact wet surfaces will multiply.
The water has also come in contact with soil and other contaminants. It may escalate from a clean water flood (category 1) to a gray (category two) or even a black water flood (category three).
