The water removal process has to be started immediately, or it will lead to more severe problems, quickly.
TYPES OF WATER REMOVAL EMERGENCIES
We can categorize water removal and extraction emergencies based on water damage severity. This is because water removal and cleanup specialists need to use different elements and equipment to guarantee complete water removal and extraction. The 3 categories are:
- Category 1. Water is safe for human consumption and sanitary. When inhaled, touched, or ingested, there is no illness or infection risk. With this category, water sources include freshwater and sprinkler systems.
- Category 2. Water is potentially dangerous and you may get sick when you come in contact with it. This type of water includes high levels of microorganisms that pose a health threat. This is what we refer to as “gray water.”
- Category 3. Very dangerous toxins and pathogens have contaminated the water, including sewage. We normally refer to this water as “black water.” Such a flooding source can actually be deadly. Only trust professional water removal and extraction specialists with this category and treat the incident as a true emergency.
When you contact Green Restoration emergency water removal and extraction specialists, you can be sure we only use the highest quality green products. We also always use special equipment that is not available in most homes, like large industrial pumps, air movers, industrial dehumidifiers, and air scrubbers.
WHEN THE WATER IS NOT REMOVED COMPLETELY
As soon as you notice flooding in a home or building, it’s imperative that you treat the incident as an emergency. Every surface and material in your home is prone to extensive damage, such as fracture, sheathing, and swelling.
If water is left standing and is not removed, the environment becomes perfect for mold and mildew. The presence of moisture also encourages mold growth. Mold often appears between walls and is hidden in corners and out-of-the-way spaces. Most people do not even see mold until it becomes a considerable health hazard.
