Water Damage Restoration- Know More

Water damage is caused when water enters a structure via either a direct hose pipe or indirectly via a low-pressure water supply. Water damage occurs when the invading water increases in pressure beyond the rate at which the structure can dissipate the excess water via gravity. Common examples of water damage include leaks in roofs, basements, sewers, pipes, water heaters, toilets, showers, water tables, valves, and cabinets. Water damage is classified according to its location, as wet/dry, active/passive, and hidden/undesired. Wet/dry damage occurs when water is actually moving through a building, whereas active/passive damage occurs when the outside contaminates the inside of the building, and hidden/undesired damage occurs when the environment becomes hostile to living organisms.

There are two common methods of water damage restoration, wet reconstruction and dry reconstruction. Wet reconstruction involves removing debris and replacing it with a new one using organic materials; dry reconstruction utilizes materials that are non-porous. Wet reconstruction is less expensive than dry reconstruction because it uses fewer materials and because materials used in wet reconstruction are usually resistant to mold and mildew growth. Dry reconstruction techniques do not require extensive removal of structure and only basic clean-up is needed after damage occurs. The average cost of water damage restoration depends on the complexity of the process required, the amount of damage, and the insurance coverage of the property.

Water extraction is the next stage of water damage restoration and is generally the most difficult to complete. Removing water from interior spaces such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, hallways, and windows is difficult and requires more manpower and equipment than the first step. Water extraction can be accomplished using pump trucks, water extraction vans, high-pressure water jets, and vacuum extractors. The average cost of water extraction is dependent on the size of the area to be treated and is generally lower than that of wet reconstruction.
