Water damage restoration and cleanup is now very advanced and based on the science and practice of known atmospheric air mixtures and water vapour control and its effect on materials.

The most efficient drying is accomplished when the restoration technician understands the scientific relationship between open and closed drying systems, natural versus mechanical dehumidification, and how temperature, humidity and airflow effect drying.

Water Damage Cleanup Repair

An experienced water technician will use balanced drying ... aiding evaporation and dehumidification. By maximizing the use of airflow, temperature and dehumidification, faster drying is maximized. If one, two or all three of the properties is misused or over depended upon, damage can occur, increasing microbial growth and increased drying time.

3 Types of Water Damage

Category 1 Water - The water does not pose a substantial threat to humans – "Clean Water". Examples are broken water supply lines, tub or sink overflows or appliance malfunctions from water supply lines.

Category 2 Water - The water contains a significant degree of chemical, biological or physical contaminants and causes discomfort or illness when exposed or consumed – "Grey Water". Examples are toilet bowls with urine (no feces), sump pump water, seepage due to hydrostatic failure and water discharge from dishwashers or washing machines.

Category 3 Water - Unsanitary – "Black Water". This water contains unsanitary agents, harmful bacteria and fungi, causing severe discomfort or illness. "Black Water" includes water sources from sewage, seawater, rising water from rivers or streams, ground surface water or standing water. Toilet back flows that originates from beyond the toilet trap is considered black water contamination regardless of visible content or colour. Grey Water that is not promptly removed from the structure and or have remained stagnant may be re classified as Category 3 Water.

In British Columbia, the Insurance Council of British Columbia has determined that an Insurance Adjuster working for an Insurer (to mitigate a loss or potential loss) can authorize restoration efforts on private property even though it may not be a covered peril; but, the Adjuster is not accountable for the outcome of any restoration effort, even if the Insured party was, or could be, knowingly placed in harms way.
