Flood Damage Restoration and Remediation Procedures
Water damage, whether caused by heavy storms, flash floods, hurricanes, or leaky pipes, can range from mild to severe. The longer building materials are exposed to wet conditions, the more potential there is for deadly mold and mildew to develop, and the more hazardous the situation becomes. Some water damage situations, such as sewage backups and toilet overflows, can create severe odor problems on top of the water damage that will require professional chemistry to resolve.
Of course, safety is always the primary concern on any water damage job, whether it’s classified as mild gray water or severe black water. Personal protective equipment such as coveralls, gloves, boots, goggles, and respirators are a must to protect the health and safety of everyone on the water damage restoration team.
Whether you’re dealing with a Category I or Category III water loss, Jon-Don has the specialty drying equipment, dehumidifiers, air movers, moisture meters, antimicrobials, and odor counteractants that restoration professionals depend on.
