CovingtonWater Damage Restoration

Covington Water Damage Restoration

Covington water damage service is the process of repairing a house or property to its pre loss condition.

Damage to the property could be because of an overflow, flood or any other water damage event. The

water damage restoration process involves several key procedures like loss assessment, categorization

based on the water contamination levels, decontaminating and drying the structure, monitoring of the

process and completion of the process. There are two large certifying bodies, namely the IICRC (Institute

of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) and the RIA (Restoration Industry Association) that

recommends standards for water damage restoration. The S500 damage due to water guide is the

benchmark tool that is used by companies that specialize in restoration of water damage.

Loss Assessment and Categorization

Loss evaluation is the first and the most important step in water damage restoration. The assessment

has to be correct so that an appropriate response can be taken. In restorating the damage caused by

water, technicians and the insurance companies must work together and understand what is damaged

and how to go about restoring the damage. Identifying the source of the damage, documentation of

damage, and accurate estimates are mandatory for a proper water damage restoration. Categorization

is based on the contamination levels of the water source. The categories are listed below

Category 1 - This is water from clean sources like pipes, sinks and toilets without faeces or urine.

Category 2 - This is water that has some contaminants like water from a dishwasher, washing machine

or toilet with urine.

Category 3 - This is water that is highly unsanitary and is capable of causing illness or death if ingested.

Sewage water, water from toilet with faeces, standing water with microbial growth and floodwater are

some examples.

Decontamination and Drying

After the evaluation is complete, the process of drying and decontaminating begins at the site. Based on

the extent of damage, damage caused due to water can be classified into 4 types. Class 1 Damage-

When loss is restricted to a small area and less water has been absorbed by materials. This results in

slow evaporation rate. Class 2 Damage - When the damage is to the entire room and carpet area. Class 3

Damage - When the entire area is saturated with water and Class 4 Damage - when there are many deep

saturation pockets. Decontamination and drying is a key stage in Covington Water damage restoration

and equipments like blowers, dehumidifiers, scrubbers and subfloor drying equipments have to be used.

Decontamination has to be done if contamination has been detected in the area. Decontamination may

be done for the entire area or in specific pockets where contamination has been detected.

Monitoring and Completion

Monitoring the restoration process of damage caused due to damage is critical to achieve the desired

results. One has to be proactive during the monitoring process. Checking if the drying equipment is

setup properly, assessing if the personnel involved are qualified for the job and checking if the

equipments are in working order are all part of the monitoring process. Necessary steps are to be taken

if anything wrong is spotted during the monitoring process. The entire process of water damage

restoration would be classified as complete only once the humidity, temperature and the moisture

content is as per industry standards. Upon completion of the water damage restoration process, the

drying equipment can be removed.
