Flood Water Damage Drying

Flood Moisture Detection

Water Extraction

Carpet and cushioning can hold large amounts of water. The first goal is to remove as much of this water as possible since water is most easily removed in its liquid state.

Dehumidifier Blower Dryer Hire

Once the excess water is removed, Steam ‘n’ Dry Carpet Auckland flood services must concentrate on changing water from a liquid to vapor form using evaporation. By using air movers positioned in the right location, we can maximize evaporation. We also must focus on removing the evaporated water from the structure through either a natural or mechanical drying system. Given the right internal and external circumstances, Steam ‘n’ Dry Carpet Auckland flood services may be able to use the outside environment to help expedite the drying process.

If not we must use a mechanical, or closed, drying system through the use of dehumidifiers. It is important that the rate of dehumidification is greater than the rate of evaporation.

The Importance of Moisture Detection and Thermal Imaging

People, including many companies who claim to be water damage specialists, tend to overlook the migration of water into structural components other than the carpets. Water will always take the path of least resistance. This means that water, given the right circumstances, will travel through walls and into adjacent rooms. Water will also tend to wick up drywall the same way a paper towel can absorb water upwards when saturated.

Categories of Flood Water

There are three categories of water, as defined by the IICRC. These categories of water refer to the range of contamination in water, considering both its originating source and its quality after it contacts materials present on the job site. Time and temperature can also affect the quality of water, thereby changing its category. In general, any materials saturated with category 3 water should be removed.

Category 1 Clean Water

Clean Water that originates from a sanitary water source, therefore, doesn’t pose substantial risk from dermal, ingestion, or inhalation exposure. Examples of category 1 water sources can include, but are not limited to: broken water supply lines; tub or sink overflows with no contaminants; appliance malfunctions involving water-supply lines; and falling rainwater. Once clean water leaves the exit point, it may not remain clean once it contacts other surfaces or materials.

Category 2 Grey Water

Water that contains significant contamination and has the potential to cause discomfort or sickness if contacted or consumed by humans. Category 2 water can contain unsafe levels of microorganisms, and inorganic matter. Examples of category 2 water include, but are not limited to: discharge from dishwashers or washing machines; overflows from washing machines; overflows from toilet bowls on the room side of the trap with some urine but no feces; broken aquariums; and punctured water beds.

Category 3 Black Water

Dirty Water is contaminated and can contain pathogenic, toxigenic, or other harmful agents. Examples of category 3 water include, but not limited to: sewage, toilet backflows that originated beyond the toilet trap regardless of visible content or color; all forms of Wet Carpet Drying flooding from seawater, ground surface water, and rising water from rivers or streams, and other contaminated water entering or affecting the indoor environment. Such water sources may carry silt, organic matter, pesticides, heavy metals, regulated materials, or toxic organic substances.
