Water can be extremely unpredictable and move into places that cannot be seen with the naked eye. We utilize water detection equipment such as infrared cameras, moisture meters, and other professional tools to find where the water has traveled. This equipment lets us know what is wet and how much water damage there is so that we can put a plan of action together that will ensure everything is dry and safe.
Flooded basements and crawlspaces can present even more challenges than regular room spaces. Hidden moisture can lead to mold and mildew that can invade and ruin your stored contents and valuables. Our job is to detect and remove the water in your basement quickly and completely as well as anywhere else in your home or business.
Columbia, MD Water Damage Cleanup & Removal Professionals
There are 3 classifications of water that we identify as categories:
- Category 1 water is simply fresh, clean water from a pipe break.
- Category 2 water can be a number of things from a dishwasher overflow, to water coming from the ceiling down to another level. We consider this type of water slightly contaminated.
- Category 3 water is considered grossly contaminated and would be water such as sewage backups and rainwater that backed up from a sump pump or came from the outside. It can also be category 1 or 2 water that has sat for a few days, increasing the microbial level. This requires a professional sewage damage restoration company to ensure the area is thoroughly decontaminated.
We're trained in how to identify what category of water we're dealing with for your water damage restoration to make sure we clean any affected areas properly to ensure your safety. We will flush the areas with 200-degree water and, at times, we will apply an anti-microbial agent. Anti-microbial agents are used to deodorize, sanitize, and prevent mold growth. Children, elderly people, and others with weak immune systems or respiratory problems can get sick from strong chemicals such as antimicrobials. We will advise if any safety precautions are needed.
