Water Damage Restoration

Water is the leading carrier of pathogens in the world today and is also the cause of damage in some of the worst natural catastrophes North America encounters on a regular basis: hurricanes. As destructive as hurricanes are, they are not the leading cause of water intrusion and water damage in structures. Water damage can also occur in buildings due to construction defects, plumbing failures, damage from frozen pipes and improper maintenance.

90% of jobs that start out as water damage will have mold present after 72 hours of being wet. This could change the category of loss from Category 1 (clean water), to Category 3 (unsanitary).

Mold Removal Chicago Water Damage Restoration Immediate remediation is key to preventing water damage from escalating costs. The longer water damage restoration is delayed, the higher the costs of restoration will be. Our number one job is to keep the customer safe during the Water Damage Drying, Mold Remediation, or Sewage Removal process.

The goal of the water damage restoration process is to transform an abnormally wet, potentially damaged structure into an environment of equal or better appearance and cleanliness than before the intrusion occurred, and to do so in the most economical and efficient means possible.

Water Damage Categories

Based on the source of the water, the length of time the water has been allowed to dwell in the structure, the temperature, and pre-existing conditions, it is possible to assess the category and employ appropriate means of restoration. Water damage restoration technicians diligently investigate structures for indications of contamination, assigning a category only after a thorough investigation.

Category 1: Clean Water

Water from a clean source with no substantial risk of causing sickness or discomfort is said to be Category 1 water, or “clean”. In order for a situation to remain category 1, water must not have been present for an excessive amount of time, and materials affected must be clean and well maintained. If odors are present in the structure, further investigation is necessary until the source of the odor is found. Odors indicate that the water is not Category 1.

Category 2: Unsanitary Water

Water that has a significant degree of chemical, biological and/or physical contamination is said to be Category 2. Water sources that can result in Category 2 damage include aquarium leaks, waterbed leaks, toilet bowl overflows (that contain urine), dishwasher or clothes washer discharges, and water that enters the structure from hydrostatic pressure (from below grade). In order to remain Category 2, water must not be allowed to dwell in the structure for an extended period of time.

Category 3: Grossly Unsanitary Water

When water intrusion results from a grossly unsanitary source or carries pathogenic (disease causing) agents, it is said to be Category 3. Examples of Category 3 water sources include discharge from toilets that originate from the sewer or septic system, and intrusion from the surface of ground water into the structure (flood waters). Many procedures are necessary to address cleanliness and safety when dealing with Category 3 water intrusions.

Mold Remediation

Mold Remediation Chicago Mold Removal Mold is a microscopic life form found in all parts of the world and is part of the natural decomposition of organic materials. Simply stated, mold remediation is the process of clean up and disinfection. Mold remediation is taking action to reduce, isolate, or remove contamination from an environment with the goal of preventing further reproduction and spreading of contaminants.

The end goal of a mold remediation project is to return the indoor environment to a clean, safe, livable condition also known as a condition 1 status. What this means in terms of mold contamination, is that the indoor environment, from a sampling basis, would be cleaner or have similar levels and types of mold comparable to the outdoor surrounding environment.

Mold Removal

Mold Removal Chicago Mold Remediation Any place that is dark and where there is an accumulation of moisture is a potential breeding pool for mold. Mold can grow on almost any organic surface as long as moisture and oxygen are present. When large amounts of moisture build-up in buildings, or building materials, mold growth will occur. Remember: no moisture, no mold.

Since mold requires oxygen, it cannot grow under water. Mold requires moisture to grow, which means buildings must be kept dry to prevent growth. Mold is spread by tiny particles called “spores” that become airborne and can attach to skin, fur, clothing etc.

Mold removal involves either removing the mold from the surface on which it is growing or removing the material where the mold is growing. Part of a mold removal job is making sure everything in the structure is dry. If not, once the damage restoration is complete and containment is removed, mold spores will return to the site and mold will begin to grow again.

Free Damage Inspection And Estimate!

A Chicago damage restoration professional needs to determine the category and classification of loss prior to arrival. During the initial inspection, the restorer will gather information necessary to properly scope the restoration process. This requires knowledge of the building’s history and a thorough understanding of the extent of the water intrusion, the type of building materials affected, the amount of damage that has occurred, and any pre-existing conditions.

Our inspections are nonabrasive and consist of checking all water sources and leaks to find the original source of the damage. We then remedy the problem and scope any damage using z-5 air tests which tell us what the spore count is in the air.
