For a business, municipal building, school, church or similar structure, a water damage emergency can result in service and business interruption until the water damage is remediated. Every hour spent waiting equates to lost services, revenue and productivity. A long delay in mitigation can lead to secondary damages to your property, including possible structural issues, and the onset of potentially hazardous microbial growth and the potential to become a breeding ground for various types of mold and fungi. Damage Doctors is licensed and IICRC-certified when it comes to dealing with water and mold damage.
The Site Survey & Free Estimate
Since all water damage restoration projects are different, the inspection of your property is an important first step in getting your restoration underway. We will complete a site survey using the most accurate industry tools available, determine the extent of the damage and provide a scope of the necessary steps needed for restoration, including the estimated cost and time required to do so.
We offer a unique “turnkey” service. This means once the source of the water has been stopped and the area is dry, we can provide any put-back services because our goal is to get you back in business with the least amount of service interruption to your clients, members or guests.
Water Damage Categories
Water damage categories refer to the range of contamination found in water:
White Water (also known as Clean Water). White water damage does not pose a substantial health concern. The most common instances of white water damage are caused by overflowing sinks, leaking appliances, or burst pipes. This is also the easiest category
of water damage to fix.
Grey Water. Grey water comes from a source that may cause sickness when exposed to or consumed. This may be water from a toilet bowl, or other sources that have been exposed to relatively mild chemicals or toxins. Grey water should be treated with caution and needs to be handled quickly and safely by a professional.
Black Water. The third and most serious type of water source is black water. While not necessarily black in color, black water is completely unsanitary. Generally, water from any type of flooding, be it river/rain water or seawater, is classified as black water and contains harmful bacteria.
