Types of Water Damage
There are generally 3 classifications of water that can cause damage within the home.
There is "clean" water. This is what is flowing through your water main before it enters your faucet. This also includes natural rainwater that has not been contaminated.
The second classification is "grey water". This is water that has been "used" in the home in some way but does not fall into the category of "severely contaminated sewage". This kind of water includes water that has been used by appliances as well as water draining from sinks and showers.
Severely Contaminated Water & Sewage
The final classification is "black water". This kind of water is dangerous and poses an extreme health threat to anyone exposed to it. It is water with severe contamination from bacteria, fungus, or pathogens. It is the kind of sewage that is found in the sewer lines.
Water damage restoration for sewage and "black water" requires much stricter and more intensive cleaning procedures, so it is important to understand what kind of water your are dealing with.
Avoid The Danger of Mold Growth
For many people, a very common and extremely unfortunate aftereffect of water damage is mold growth. It is one of the most important reasons why a restoration professional should deal with water damage. Incomplete water extraction or insufficient drying of moisture are common occurrences when individuals attempt their own DIY water restoration.
In many cases where DIY restoration is attempted, the end result is that homeowners end up paying more for mold restoration on top of water damage restoration because they did not hire professionals to begin with.
