Most Boise water damage projects follow a similar path. While the equipment can vary as the surfaces affected differ (as well as the extent of the damage), the video below gives you a better idea of the basement water damage cleanup process:
We see this almost daily and please trust us, it’s just not something you want to go through. No one wants to have to have their basement professionally mitigated and dried out, but the alternative is dangerous.
The biggest risk, and one that is guaranteed, not a maybe or could happen, is black mold. If the loss isn’t properly mitigated, you will get black mold. It’s that simple. How do we make sure that never happens? We implement a few prevention techniques:
() accurate & thorough moisture assessments – this can not be overlooked or done incorrectly. There is really only one way to combat mold, and that is make sure the moisture levels are low enough that it can’t survive. We use sophisticated equipment, including infrared cameras as seen below, to find and monitor moisture levels throughout the process.
() anti-microbial spraying – we go the extra mile to stop mold growth, and that also includes applying an anti-fungal spray to basement walls, flooring, or any other surfaces that are wet. After we extract the water, we then go back and spray our powerful anti-microbials throughout the area. This step gives us more time to complete the project and hold off mold growth!
() fast dry-times – ultimately, we have to remove the moisture fast enough and make sure that in the process we don’t cause secondary water damage (this happens when evaporated moisture isn’t properly trapped in dehumidifiers and exhausted outside the basement and ends up traveling to other (dry) areas of the property and makes them wet. We own the most powerful drying equipment on the market ensuring we can get your basement dry before black mold takes root!
Within the water & flood damage restoration industry, there are 3 categories that help determine what protocol is used to cleanup basement flooding. Here’s a quick rundown of each category…do you know which one your loss falls under?
This is the ‘safest’ category type as it poses no risk to the dwelling’s inhabitants. Clear water is a flood that contains safe drinking water. Examples of clean water losses are sinks overflowing, broken toilet tanks, or leaks from appliances that do not contain contamination.
Gray water is a category 2 water loss and contains significant contamination, whether it’s chemical, biological, or physical in nature. It can make you sick from skin contact and/or ingestion. If you’ve had a an overflow from a washing machine, an aquarium that has leaked, or leakage from the room-side of a toilet bowl with urine in it, you’d have a grey water loss!
This is the most dangerous water loss category as it poses a serious risk to those who come into contact with it. Black water is grossly contaminated and has disease causing agents (pathogens) that can make you extremely sick. Personal protection equipment must always be worn when dealing with this loss! Category 3 losses include sewage back-ups and flood waters from streams and rivers (or any water that has passed over the ground before entering your basement).
