Water damage is a prevalent form of damage in New Westminster, BC, and the surrounding areas. It can be caused from a number of things, not just disastrous circumstances like a flooding. It can be something as simple as an overflowing toiled or a dripping pipe. If the issue isn’t taken care of promptly, it can lead to more wreckage to your property. In combination with the inside conditions of your property, water can incite the development of harmful bacteria, which has a tendency to spread.
This is why you should get an expert over to handle the damages in your house. There are three classifications that water damage is categorized in, and we know how to make the situation better and extract all of them. Restoration 1 contractors use the most advanced tools and know the best methods to remove the issue.
We eliminate all standing water in your house with our specialized equipment and pumps. Once all the water has been removed, drying the space can begin. This way we can get your home ready for water damage repair and get it back to its original state.
During this operation, any carpets and padding are pulled up from the ground for thorough drying. Our contractors use industry-grade dehumidifiers and equipment to dry all surfaces. We need to make sure all floors are completely dried for the next step.
Your personal possessions will be taken care of and brought back to pre-damaged conditions if possible (depending on the condition of the water, your items might be lost). The restoration stage will repair and patch up any damages inflicted to your property's structure as well. This is the rebuilding part of Restoration 1's water damage repair services.
Water Damage Categories
If your property sustains damage from water supply lines (like appliances, faucets, pipes, etc.) this is classified as Category 1. Category 1 is called clean water since the source isn't harmful if it comes in contact. With this kind of water damage, the experts at Restoration 1 will be able to restore most, if not all, of your flooring, walls or other personal problems that got wet if we're contacted immediately.
Category 2 is water damage that has biological, chemical and physical pollutants that are dangerous to humans, and this can lead to major wreckage on your property. This usually stems from toilet bowls with waste in them, water discharge from appliances, sump pump failures and any other water that runs through a sanitation system. Spaces that have been contaminated from this category of water damage will have to be removed as fast as possible in order to prevent mould growth.
Category 3, or black water, refers to water that is filthy and contains harmful bacteria and fungi. This is typically caused by sewage back up from broken pipes. Other sources consist of rising water from rivers or streams, seawater, ground surface water or water from Category 2 that was not extracted and has been sitting for 48-72 hours. Water damage repair for Category 3 requires certain equipment and reliable methods to eliminate. With black water, a mould removal service is necessary to make sure that any contaminants won't spread.
