Tools of the Trade - See why certification makes a difference in water damage cleanup.

Sudden water breaks, sump pump backups, toilet overflows and the like often affect building materials in a matter of seconds. Unlike standing water, building materials absorb moisture resulting in damage that is often hard to detect with the naked eye.

Moisture Meters:

Invasive and non-invasive moisture meters are used to detect pockets of moisture that are imperative to identify and document. In follow up moisture monitoring, these tools are used to track the success or failure of a drying plan. Often, leading to the identification of areas that may need additional attention during the restoration process.

Infrared Cameras:

In some cases, determining hidden moisture damage is time-consuming or ineffective with moisture meters alone. Infrared, or as they are often referred to, thermal cameras are used to quickly identifying moisture and water damage throughout an affected area. Images taken by the camera allow technicians to review the area during follow-up moisture monitoring quickly.
Extraction Equipment:

One of the biggest changes to our industry within the last decade has been the advent of "Top Down Drying." A method created using weighted extraction equipment, allowing the carpet and often the carpet pad to be salvaged during the restoration of a clean water loss. In doing so, specialized weighted equipment is used to remove not only the excess water that you can see but the water that has seeped into the backing of the carpet and carpet padding as well. Time and category of the loss greatly determine the success or use of this method, the faster the response, the more likely many and most of the building materials can be salvaged.

Truck mount high-powered vacuums, flood equipped portable extraction units and sump pumps are all tools that are available, depending on the size, location, and type of water that has affected your home or business. In extreme flooding cases, we have extraction units are capable of removing over 750 gallons of water per minute.


From LGR (Low Grain Refrigerant) to Desiccant; dehumidifiers come in all sizes and play a vital role in any drying plan. With proper use, dehumidifiers control relative humidity, remove excess moisture from the air, reduce the grains of moisture per pound. Assists in reducing the overall humidity to lessen the possibility of mold growth.
Air Movers:

Air movers and related equipment help to restore water damaged materials by allowing high volumes of air, calculated by CFM (cubic foot per minute) to move along the affected areas, to cause a wicking effect of moisture to the surface, allowing efficient drying with evaporation.

Ideal environments wherein dehumidifiers and air movers work are often within containment's, erected within the building space to reduce the amount of needed equipment to focus only on the affected areas.

Indentifying the Source & Category of Water

From ice damming in the winter months, to a sump pump backup during the rainy seasons, there are many ways water can damage your home or business and change the daily routine of your family or employees until its resolved.

According to the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification), which sets the standards for the water damage restoration training, there are several different levels and classes involved when assessing water damage.

Per the IICRC’s S-500 standards, there are three categories describing the type of water involved.

  • Category 1. Referred to as "Clean water."
    • Water was resulting from a clean and sanitary source, such as faucets, toilet tanks, drinking fountains, etc. Time and contact with building contaminants can quickly degrade a category one water loss to category two and beyond.
  • Category 2. Often referred to as "gray water,"
    • Described as having some level of contaminants that can or may cause illness or discomfort if ingested. Examples include dishwasher or washing machine overflows, backup from sink drains, and toilet overflow with some urine but not feces. As with category one, time and contact can further degrade the definition to a category three.
  • Category 3. Often referred to as "Black Water."
    • Category three is the worst classification and is grossly unsanitary. Potentially causing severe illness or death if ingested. Sources include sewer backup, flooding from rivers or streams, toilet overflow with feces, and stagnant liquid that has begun to support bacterial and microbial growth.

Further Classification of a water loss

  • Class 1. Defined a being the lowest and easiest to deal with, this has a slow evaporation rate. Damage to only part of a room or area that was affected, there is little or no wet carpet, and the moisture has only affected materials with a low permeance rate, such as plywood or concrete.
  • Class 2. Defined as having a fast evaporation rate, this level affects an entire room, carpeting, or carpet padding, the moisture has wicked up the walls at least 12”, and there is water remaining in structural materials.
  • Class 3. Defined as having the fastest evaporation rate, and ceilings, walls, insulation, carpet, carpet padding, and sub-floors are all saturated.
  • Class 4. Defined as specialty drying situations, which means there has been enough liquid and time to soak materials with very low permeance, such as hardwood, brick, or stone.

Smoke damage repair for home and business

When a fire breaks out, most assume that the burning of the structure is the primary source of loss. But that is always true, as flames and heat cause structural damages to affected areas, one of the biggest contributors during a fire is smoke and the residual effects of smoke. Smoke can affect contents and porous items throughout your home or business, penetrating into materials causing discoloration and odors, and leave behind an acidic residue buildup.

In a fire, there can be many forms and types of smoke that can be created causing further damage.

Below is a list of common smoke residue types that are often created when certain items burn.

  • Wet Smoke: This kind of smoke is often set up in a slow, low-temperature fire. Often referred to as “wet smoke” because it can create a thick, sticky film of residue that can build up on surfaces causing subsequent damage and emitting heavy smoke odors. This type of smoke buildup is also the most difficult to clean, remove, and deodorize from belongings and structures.
  • Dry Smoke: When a fire reaches a high temperature, “dry smoke” is often created. Dry smoke has a fine, powdery-like consistency and due to this form, it can easily be cleaned from strong, non-porous surfaces. Particularly alarming about dry smoke is when the powdery-like substance is hidden or becomes trapped in cracks or porous surfaces, such as clothing and upholstered contents, where it can emit musky smoke odors and become difficult to remove.
  • Protein Smoke: When food or organic materials burn, often creating a smoke by-product known as “protein smoke.” This type of smoke can produce soot that is hard to see visibly, but easy to feel. It’s generally light to clear in color, and can permanently discolor wood surfaces, and the odors it emits can be a bit overwhelming.
  • Petroleum Smoke: When oils or oil-based substances burn, petroleum smoke is produced. This type of smoke is dark in appearances and will often discolor and stain any porous material it touches. Fortunately, due to it being oil-based, this kind of smoke may be able to be cleaned with a degreasing agent.

Smoke and the resulting odor can affect clothing and porous materials or contents even when furthest from the source of the fire. These materials need expert quick inspection and restoration using specialized and proven techniques to salvage these items. Air filtering devices, equipped with carbon filtration, ozone machines, and hydroxyl units are just a few of the pieces of the technology advances used in combating and assisting in the complete odor removal in your residential or commercial property.

In addressing the water used during the fire department response, each has to be approached as a category three or grossly contaminated due to the many contaminants involved with soot and the by-products of burning building materials. If it is safe to do so, removal of water damaged carpet and carpet padding should be performed immediately and drying equipment setup to start the process of salvaging any remaining building materials.

Keep in mind that any area that is a direct origin or that could be detrimental to determining the cause of loss must remain untouched until cleared by the investigations units of both the local fire department and your insurance carrier. As a rule of thumb, this should always include any fire-damaged debris removed from the residence or commercial property during the fire department response.

Molds, in themselves can cause ravaging allergy issues for yourself and your family. Mold spores can be found in your ventilation systems, porous contents, and anywhere damp conditions exist.

Remediation of mold and mold spores doesn't have to be a scary issue. Do not allow an inspector to test only for "black mold".. If conditions exist for mold, chances are it's there. Opt for remediation estimates instead and insist on verification of the cleaning such as the ATP test.
