Water damage is nothing new for homeowners. It can occur as a result of burst pipe, leaky roof, flood or even due to an effort to put out a fire incident.

Water damage restoration should be done by professional companies so as to restore your property back to its original state before the damage. The company is expected to come in, carry out an assessment of the damage and place a value on your loss and service to restore your property. The water damage restoration company should be able to categorize the water damage you have from a scale of 1 to 4. For example, a level 1 kind of damage portrays light water damage to one area or a room where the carpet is not saturated. Level 2 involves at least one entire room with a saturated carpet and wicking of walls up to 24 inches. The overhead damage such a leaky ceiling and saturated room constitutes level 3 while level 4 is the highest damage which is reserved for deep saturations like what you have in flood cases.
That aside, the water damage restoration expert, may also need to determine the category of water contamination after assessing the damage to your home. For example, some water restoration companies may classify category 1 contamination as clean water such as from a broken water pipe. Category 2is that which begins with some degree of contamination and could cause sickness or discomfort if consumed by humans.
As with Category 1 water, time and temperature can cause Category 2 water to become progressively more contaminated. And Category 3 water is that which is highly contaminated and could cause death or serious illness if consumed by humans. Examples: sewage, rising flood water from rivers and streams, ground surface water flowing horizontally into homes.
Once these assessments are done, then your water damage restoration company will assemble a team to get the water out. In some cases, it may require pumping water out of the home or extracting water from surfaces. Removing affected building materials which cannot be restored, disinfecting and cleaning surfaces and finally setting up equipment to structurally dry out the property.
