Types of Water Damage
Water damage can be categorized either by the contamination level of the water that caused the damage or by the level of wetness, as represented by the evaporation rate. The source of the water directly affects the contamination level - if a sewage pipe bursts or backs-up, for example, the result is a category three (grossly unsanitary) situation. Clean water flooding, or category one, may result from an overflowing bathtub or a leak in clean-water pipes. Evaporation rates are determined by the area affected and the types of materials (cushions, walls, etc.).
There is one thing common to all types of water damage: if you leave the damaged property to dry out on its own, you risk secondary damage from mold and mildew, as well as rotting and unpleasant musty odors. Do not wait for time to take its course. Call 617-532-1918 for our expert Water Damage Restoration service in Boston immediately.
Step to Take When Dealing With Water Damage
Our Water extraction and Water Damage Restoration team in Boston has worked with homeowners, contractors, insurance agencies and others to solve even the most complicated water damage restoration and mold remediation problems.
If you find yourself facing the aftermath of a flood, burst pipes, fire-extinguishing or some other cause of water damage, there are some steps you can take before our Water Damage and Restoration team takes over. If possible:
- Turn off and disconnect the electricity in the affected area.
- Stop the flow of water from the water source.
- Remove as much excess water as possible especially from Wet carpets.
- If the weather permits, open the windows and start your fan and blowers to encourage air circulation and drying.
- If your air conditioning system has a humidity setting or if you have a dehumidifier, turn it on to help reduce humidity.
It's important to remember that water damage doesn't have to be the result of a flood, or other obvious source of excess water. It can also be the result of improperly cleaning - or insufficiently drying - carpets and upholstery. It can result from a slow leak in a pipe that's hidden behind a wall, in an attic or cellar, or somewhere else not readily visible. This type of water damage is particularly dangerous, as it can easily lead to the growth of health-threatening mold.
