What is Water Damage Cleanup?

Water is a source of life but is also an agent of serious damage to real and personal property. When we say water damage cleanup, we are not talking about a small spill. Tidal Wave Response deals with water damage cleanup that involves sudden and/or great amounts of water. Although the water damage restoration and cleanup process can vary depending on the extent and type of the damage, we will go over the general process here. We will also include some tips on how you can minimize damage to your property. If you have any questions or need an urgent dispatch to your location, then call Tidal Wave Response now. We are available 24/7 with response times of under thirty minutes.

Types of Water Damage

There are three primary types of water damage that are categorized based on the harmfulness of the water. The water damage cleanup process will be the same for the most part, but the precautions and intensity of cleaning changes.

  • Clean Water Damage: This first category of water damage is the least severe. Clean water damage includes broken pipes and water supply lines, overflowing sinks and bathtubs, and appliance issues. As the name suggests, this damage involves clean water that is sewage- and toxin-free.
  • Gray Water Damage: Water from appliances such as toilets, washing machines, and sump pumps is not necessarily toxic, but it is dirty. Though this water is generally not harmful, the waste and chemicals may prove harmful down the line.
  • Black Water Damage: When water contains sewage, toxins, and bacteria, its damage is considered black water damage. This is the most severe type of water damage and can pose serious health risks.

Water Damage Cleanup Process

The water damage cleanup process should be started as soon as possible. In fact, the first 48 hours are crucial. After these 48 hours, the damage will begin to permeate through the building, damaging walls, floors, and the foundation of the building. Here is a simple summary of the water damage cleanup process:

  • Remove Debris: We try to save property from damage by removing debris as soon as possible. This also gives us space to work. Damaged property will be salvaged to the best of our ability.
  • Water Extraction: Standing water will be removed from damaged surfaces using vacuum technology. Excess moisture will be soaked up with mopping. Standing water is a breeding ground for bacteria and can deteriorate property.
  • Sanitize, Disinfect, and Sterilize: Mold growth and odor development is a very real aftermath of water damage. We perform deep and thorough cleaning to prevent these inconvenient and harmful consequences.
  • Remove Excess Moisture: Water spreads quick. We remove excess moisture from the air and building material with air movers and dehumidification equipment to prevent secondary water-damage.
