Alex R. Szeles, Inc. professionals will estimate the level of damage caused by different types of water intrusions, and perform the following three major steps:
Step 1: Water removal
Water intrusions can have many different sources. Depending on the source, the water may be clean, gray, black, or mixed if from multiple sources.
Category I: water from sanitary or "clean" water sources. This type of water does not cause health threat. The source may include broken pipelines, appliance water line failures, tub and sink overflows, falling rainwater, hot water heater ruptures, broken toilet tanks, etc.
Category II: water from unsanitary or "gray" water sources, which may be contaminated. "Gray" water sources include, appliance overflows from dishwashers, toilet bowls, washing machines, waterbeds, aquariums, etc.
Category III: water from unsanitary or "black" water sources, which regularly contain pathogenic agents. This kind of water source includes sea and ground surface water, municipal sewer lines, water from rivers and streams etc.
Step 2: Complete Drying
After we have extracted as much pooled water as possible we continue drying using dehumidification and other processes to extract the water that remains in the structure and contents in order to prevent further damages.
Step 3: Sewage Clean-up
Locating hidden water damage
Drying and dehumidification
Taking and monitoring moisture readings
Porous materials such as carpet, paper, books, etc., cannot be salvaged and must be disposed. However, hard, non-porous surfaces can be cleaned and disinfected. Successful clean up of sewage damaged personal property requires that restoration professionals adhere to the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification's Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration S500-99 (IICRC Standards.)
