Experts agree that water damage cleanup by professionals who specialize in water damage remediation not only restore valuable property, but also save householders money. The longer that water is allowed to sit in a home or business, the harder it is to repair the damage. The key to the water cleanup process is to call professionals like Concept Restoration immediately.
Not only is your Mesa home at risk, but so is the health of your family. The water damage industry has definitions to determine your risk; learn the terms in order to choose the appropriate clean up process:
There are three categories of water based on the level of contamination:
While the initial water from these sources is not hazardous to your health, ignoring it can eventually cause mold or mildew growth in the affected areas which is harmful to your health. Category 1 water damage must be cleaned up before it has a chance to harbor mold or mildew growth.
Simply removing the water will not be effective. The affected area must also be cleaned and disinfected to prevent health risks.
Mold, microorganisms, and toxins from waste materials can result in a range of allergic reactions and extended exposure can even lead to more serious respiratory problems including infections and difficulty breathing.
While the category describes the “dirtiness”, the term “class” refers to the severity of the damage. Class measures the probable rate of evaporation based on the type of materials affected. Determining the class of water damage helps plan the amount and type of equipment used to treat the area.
Regardless of the source, water can have negative effects on your health. Get expert help from qualified experts in order to keep your family safe.
Although you may have survived the water itself, be aware of the additional danger from mold. People who are sensitive to molds or who have chronic lung illnesses can have reactions varying in severity from eye irritation to lung infections. Diseases such as bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, allergic fungal sinusitis, and occasionally hives (urticaria) are usually the consequence of allergic sensitization to the molds that grow when excess water is present.
Mold can dry out, but the dried spores can still pose a respiratory risk so proper cleanup is essential after a flood. Trust a professional water damage remediation team to thoroughly check for potential sources.
