Water damage comes in three categories: clean water, grey water, and black water. Clean water damage is caused by potable water, like when you drop the water jug as you try to put it in the water cooler at work. It gets into the carpet, runs under the walls, and just plain makes a huge mess.
Grey water damage carries physical, chemical, or even biological contaminants and spreads them to every crack and crevice. This might happen when your dishwasher, clothes washer, or toilet (no feces) leaks. Urine alone is considered grey water.
Lastly, there is black water damage. Black water damage is caused by pretty much everything else. Examples include seawater, sewage tank overflows, flooding caused by extreme weather or just plain standing water (think puddles).
Our job is to extract all the water and mitigate any further water damage, regardless of its category. We then set fans and dehumidifiers to dry any additional moisture. Often, this requires us to elevate or remove the carpet and padding. Sometimes this might require us to remove baseboards or even drill small holes behind the baseboards. Each job is different. We pull all the carpet and padding up around the affected area and treat all areas with an anti-microbial solution to prevent mold.
Raysco, Inc.'s highly trained and certified technicians will come out to your home or business and immediately mitigate the situation to prevent further damage. After 24 hours of drying, we will put together a detailed estimate to restore your home or business.
