Mold Remediation & Water Damage Mitigation in Benbrook
Though every situation is different and requires a unique plan for getting back to normal, especially when it comes to the type and category of water that’s gotten into the home, there are similarities in our approach.
Isolating and Eliminating Mold Growth
We share pricing before any work begins. When it comes to water damage, the first steps will involve drying the excess water and dehumidifying. It’s important to inspect for mold and test the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) at this time as well. Any mold growth must be isolated and eliminated with the proper equipment and products before sealing to prevent a return.
Categories & Classes of Water Damage
Water damage is broken down into both categories and classes to help professionals determine the safest method for recovery.
- Category 1 is considered clean water, which is sanitary as it does not have contaminants. However, this water can move to other categories if it’s left its original source.
- Category 2 is known as gray water and is unsafe for contact and/or consumption as it came from appliances, toilets, aquariums, etc. Again, if not treated carefully, gray water can also become more hazardous to the point of toxicity.
- Category 3 is known as black water, which is highly contaminated, potentially with sewage, bacteria, or heavy metals.
While categories dictate the toxicity of water, classes help break down the evaporation rate of water based on the materials impacted. This determines the equipment necessary for recovery and how much of the property and contents have been damaged.
