Residential and Commercial Water Damage
When your home or business floods, or you need sewage cleanup, time is the crucial element for minimizing damage and maximizing a successful water cleanup. Water damage is one of the most common problems people experience in their homes and buildings near Denver, and thousands of customers have trusted All Phase Restoration to clean it up for them.
Water damage restoration is a four-step process:
- Extract the water or sewage
- Disinfect or remove affected materials
- Dry out the structure and contents
- Monitor the drying progress
The first goal is to determine the contamination level of the water or liquid causing damage. Depending on where the water originates from, the pollution level can vary. A category one pollution level is usually pure water from a natural or clean source that hasn’t been standing for long. Category two water usually involves an extended stand time along with other elements such as sewage or toxins. A category three is extremely dirty water, and involves sewage and other toxins. The longer the water stands, the worse it typically gets. Our goal is to get to water damage as soon as possible, so we can remove the liquid and dry out the space or property.
Affected Material Removal and Area Disinfection
It’s important that all affected material be removed and disposed of. In some cases—depending on the water purity—you may be able to salvage some of the materials. In a high majority of cases, the materials need to be disposed of to keep mold spores from spreading and developing mold. Our gutting of the water-damaged materials and space allows for a more effective cleaning and disinfection of the area.
Dry Out the Space and Contents
Mold requires moisture to develop and spread. It’s imperative to dry the space or area before restoring new material like carpet or drywall so mold doesn’t gain a foothold and cause more damage (and health problems) later.
Monitor The Process
We prefer to monitor the dry-out process before adding new materials or content back to ensure that no moisture is present in the damaged area. If moisture is still present while putting down new carpet, restoring drywall, or replacing insulation, you run the risk of mold developing, which is another hit to your bank account.
What Causes Water Damage?
Water in and of itself can be destructive to our homes or offices. It can slowly seep into the walls from a leaking pipe, or it can burst through our basement windows during a flood or natural disaster. No matter the cause, cleaning up the water damage as soon as possible is imperative to a successful water damage restoration.
Here are some common water damage causes:
- Pipe leak or burst
- Sewage leak
- Natural disaster
