What to look for when you’re home or business is affected by water damage:
Water damage will be found in three dimensions. Water always seeks equilibrium with its environment and wet always goes to dry, if it can. Just finding the extent of the water damage on the floor isn’t enough. The water damage needs to be mapped to determine how far up the walls it has wicked, and how far down into the substrate the water damage has gone, including possibly entering the crawlspace in a conventional foundation. This can’t be done by touch. Very specialized water damage inspection tools and meters will be required, and every water damage professional has them.
A thorough understanding of water damage demands every water damage contractor be familiar with the “science of drying”, also called psychrometry. Ask your water damage contractor what the dry standard is of each structural component suffering potential water damage. With proper water damage inspection tools and water damage experience, he should be able to tell you on a scale of 100 points the moisture content of water damaged and non water damaged materials. If he can’t, call a different water damage restoration professional.
Make sure your water damage restoration contractor draws a “moisture map” of the affected area showing the FULL extent of the water damage migration, and that he updates the water damage moisture map daily to show the progress of the water damage/structural drying project. A professional water damage restoration contractor should explain the risks of what are called secondary damages resulting from a water damaged structure. These secondary damage risks are primarily caused by increased vapor pressure (a result of poorly controlled ambient temperature and humidity), and mold/bacterial contamination. Make sure the water damage restoration contractor you hired has, uses and documents the usage of a thermo-hygrometer to trend the drying potential of the environment.
A water damage contractor should offer 24/7 service since water damage is a progressive condition that gets worse the longer it takes water damage mitigation to begin. •A professional water damage restoration contractor should select the structural drying equipment in a scientific method based on materials, size of the water damaged area, and the class and category of the water damage. At the very least he should be certified in applied structural drying, water damage restoration, and have a certification in mold remediation…a working knowledge of the relationship between water damage and mold damage should be mandatory. •For sewage related water damage, or water damage resulting from water coming into the structure from outside surface or ground water sources all hygroscopic (absorbs water) materials should be cut out and thrown away in a manner consistent with industry accepted guidelines for water damage restoration.
Water leaks can happen anywhere in the house, but they occur most frequently in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry rooms. •Kitchen Dishwasher – Periodically check under the sink to see if the hose connection to the water supply line is secure and is not leaking. Check around the base of the dishwasher for evidence of leaks. Look for discolored, warped, or soft flooring materials or water damage to nearby cabinets. •Refrigerator – If your refrigerator has an ice maker, check the hose connection to make sure it is securely attached to the water supply line. The wet spot you see on the floor near the refrigerator may be melted ice cubes or it may be a crimped ice maker line about to burst. •Sink – Re caulk around sinks and pay attention to slow-draining pipes. This may indicate a partially blocked drain. Check the pipes under the sink
