C-TECH Restoration knows there is more to water damage than meets the eye. On the surface one may think that their water damage is confined to some wet carpet and a few furnishings. What most people do not realize is that when water damage occurs, water travels quickly absorbing into and traveling underneath walls spreading from one room to another. When left untreated or improperly treated water damage can lead to secondary problems. Drywall can disintegrate, wood can warp or rot, electrical problems may occur, and mold and mildew can begin to grow. You can trust your home or business will be taken care of promptly and completely.

Water Damage 101
TIME AND TEMPERATURE ARE CRITICAL
CATEGORY 1 – Clean Water – Clean water originates from a source that does not pose a substantial harm to humans.
CATEGORY 2 – Gray Water – Gray water contains an elevated level of contamination and has potential to cause discomfort or sickness if consumed by or exposed to humans.
CATEGORY 3 – Black Water – Black water contains pathogenic (disease causing) agents and is grossly unsanitary. Black water includes sewage and other contaminated water sources entering or affecting the indoor environment.
*Note: If category 2 water is not removed promptly from the structure, it may be reclassified as category 3.
Class 1 – Slow Rate of Evaporation- A water loss that affects only part of a room or area or with wet, low permeability/porosity materials such as plywood, structural wood, VCT, or concrete, etc.
Class 2 – Faster Rate of Evaporation- A water loss that affects the entire room of carpet and cushion. The water has wicked up the walls less than twenty-four inches.
Class 3 - Fastest Rate of Evaporation- A water loss that enters the structure from overhead saturating the entire area, including the ceiling, walls, insulation, carpet, cushion, and subfloor.
