How do you handle water damage? San Diego flood remediation company Clean Earth Restorations offers you some tips.
- There are 3 categories of water three categories. Category 1 is clean water and not hazardous. Category 2 has a low level of hazardous materials that have been built up in the water. Category 3 is extremely dangerous (sewage); the levels of unwanted material in this level of water can cause serious health issues if consumed.
- It is crucial to find the source of the water. In extreme flooding situations this may seem obvious. But in some water damage situations, the water may be infiltrating over time and it may not be obvious where the water is coming from. To assist you in this process, professional water restoration companies will have the tools necessary to trace the water from its source.
- Timing is important. Once you have determined the source of the water, stopped it, and removed as much water as possible, it is important to remove water damaged materials as quickly as possible so that water damage does not spread and that mold does not have a chance to grow.
