It is important to contact your insurance company to inform them that a loss has occurred.
Understanding the different categories and classes of water damage is an important step in the drying process, and your Quick Response restoration technician will help you determine which have happened at your property.
The “category of water” refers to both the source and quality of water after it contacts building materials. There are three different categories of water damage:
Category One – Originates from a clean water source and does not pose significant health threats. Examples of clean water are broken water supply lines and sink overflows.
Category Two – Contains significant contamination and has the potential to cause negative health effects. Examples of this type of water source are discharge from dishwashers or washing machines and broken toilet bowls with urine but no feces.
Category Three – Is grossly contaminated and contains harmful agents. Examples of these water sources are sewage backups and flooding from groundwater.
Each of these categories can deteriorate to the next level without fast and proper actions taken.
The “class of water” refers to the initial amount of water and the anticipated rate of evaporation. There are four classes of water:
Class One – Only part of a room or area is wet with minimal moisture and little or no carpet or padding wet.
Class Two – An entire room is wet, and there is wet carpet and padding as well as water that has wicked up walls less than 24 inches.
Class Three – Water may have come from above, with moisture intrusion to ceilings, walls, floors, insulation and carpeting.
Class Four – Materials with a very low porosity are wet, such as brick, concrete and plaster.
Each water damage restoration project is different. It is often difficult to provide an accurate estimate for work to be completed, as there are multiple variables that will determine how long the drying equipment will need to remain in place. Quick Response uses a computer software program that is recognized throughout the insurance industry to generate our billing. Itemized billing is prepared once the structure has been properly dried. You or your insurance company will be billed for work completed.
An experienced water restoration will be able to determine if your carpet and pad can be salvaged. Factors that are considered when making this decision include the age and condition of the carpet at the time of the water loss, the length of time the carpet was exposed, the source of the water damage and the temperature of the water.
The average water loss process takes three to five days, and depending on the extent of the damage, may take longer. Our restoration technicians will monitor the progress of the job daily. Utilizing state of the art moisture meters to measure the amount of moisture remaining in your building structure, equipment will be added, removed or relocated to assure the fastest results possible. Equipment left on site should remain running and should only be moved by one of our experienced restoration technicians.
Often when you report a loss to your insurance company, they will recommend one of their preferred vendors. Under the law, it is your right to determine which company will perform the work in your home or business. Quick Response has the best interest of its clients in mind every time.
Quick Response can handle this process from start to finish. First, the team will complete a “pack out” of your home, where all salvageable items are itemized and removed from the home. They will be stored at our 30,000-square-foot heated and secured warehouse, where they will be dried, deodorized and cleaned. Your items will be stored here until you are ready to return to your home or to another residential location.
There are a number of steps you can take to prevent water from damaging your home.
At Quick Response, we minimize the chaos property owners experience after a disaster by providing comprehensive and well-coordinated cleaning, restoration, and reconstruction services. Our business grows as our satisfied customers and insurance contacts recommend our services to those in need.
