HURRICANE WATER DAMAGE RESTORATION

Hurricane Water Damage Destroyed House

What type of Hurricane Water Damage May Occur to my Property?

Defining the actual type of hurricane water damage that has occurred on your property is a crucial first step in determining the water restoration equipment and strategy to use in the restoration of your damaged house.

You see, there are four different classifications or classes of water damage:

  • Class #1 Water Damage – Slow Evaporation Rate: In a case like this one, only a small area of the property or part of a room in the house is only affected or damaged. Also, there’s practically no wet or humid carpeting and the damaged area is one of low permeability or with lower porosity.
  • Class #2 Water Damage – Fast Evaporation Rate: Unlike in the first class of water damage, the water losses in this case impact an entire room, instead of only a part of it, and wet carpeting occurs.
  • Class #3 Water Damage – Fastest Evaporation Rate: In cases like this one, the water damage usually comes from overhead. Special equipment may be required for successful water extraction. Many areas of the house or property are entirely saturated with water. The type of materials damaged with water may include walls, ceilings, carpets, or even an entire sub-floor.
  • Class #4 Water Damage – Specialty Drying Situations: Well, the word says it all; this classification of water damage requires high-tech specialty and drying equipment and the expertise of certified water damage extraction specialists. Deep pockets of water saturation are seen in cases like this one.

Why do I need a Certified Water Damage Technician to take care of my Hurricane Water Damage?

Let’s have The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), explain this one for us:

Professional restoration technicians understand the need for quick response. Immediate remediation is key to controlling any escalating costs. The longer the remediation is delayed, the higher the cost of restoration. Certified restorers have the knowledge to test materials and apply the restoration techniques required to return the items to their pre-loss condition. Look for the cleantrust logo to verify IICRC certification.

That Cleantrust Logo you see down there on the footer of our website? Yes, that means we are certified by the IICRC.

What does your Hurricane Water Damage and Flood Water Removal Process Entail?

Well, first of all we need to immediately assess the extent of the hurricane water damage and flood damage on your property – this includes, not just the structure itself, but also electrical elements of the house and the pipes and plumbing pertaining to your house.

Then, we develop the most effective strategy, based on the damage, to extract the water and flood damage that has occurred to your property. After we’re done with the water extraction and flood damage restoration process, we once again inspect the premises for any water residual damage.

We then proceed to use our high-tech and special equipment, in order to dry your house – and not just to dry it, but also to remove any stink and odors from contaminated water.

What are some Water Extraction and Flood Water Removal Tips for Homeowners?

  • Call your water damage insurance company as soon as possible.
  • Call an expert in water extraction and flood restoration. Call us.
  • Safety. Safety. Safety… This is the most important thing for you and your family. If the water and flood damage is too much and it’s not safe to stay in the house, you should evacuate the premises immediately.
  • If it is safe to stay in the house, open the windows in your house in order to facilitate the drying of the property.
  • Under no circumstances should you turn on or attempt to turn on the electrical power in your property. Wait for us to get there; if you try this on your own you might get seriously injured or cause further damage to your house.

What are some things I can do to minimize further hurricane water damage after a flood?

  • While we get there, if it’s safe to do so, you may want to mop around some of the water saturated areas in the house – remember, only the areas where this is safe to do so!
  • Open the windows or turn the air conditioner to expedite the drying of the premises and flooded areas.
  • Removed personal belongings from the area, and make sure the area is as ready as possible for the beginning of the flood damage restoration process, by picking up any loose items from the floors or wet carpets.
  • DO NOT TURN ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES, SUCH AS VACCUM CLEANERS, TV, ETC.
