Commercial How Bad Is It? Categorizing Your Water Damage Commercial Water Damage - SERVPRO of Tarzana and Reseda is here 24/7/365. Call 818-881-3636

SERVPRO of Tarzana and Reseda knows when your property has been water damage, you really CANNOT wait around for a convenient time to start the cleanup. Secondary damage from mold growth presents serious health risks so you need to act immediately.

Mold spores are everywhere and your wet carpet or drywall offers a good source of food and moisture for them to grow. There are different water categories based on where the damage came from and how it affected its surroundings.

  • Category 1 CLEAN :Water from a clean water source, like a fresh water line for a dishwasher. This water will not cause illness or any ill effects.
  • Category 2 GRAY:Water that may cause illness through contact. It may have bacteria in it.
  • Category 3 BLACK:Water that is highly contaminated. Contact can cause severe illness or death. Think sewage backup, an overflowing toilet, or storm waters.

 You have a 24 to 48 hour window from the time something gets wet until mold begins to grow. After that, mold will multiply astoundingly rapidly. When mold growth starts, you will need the services of a professional mold and water remediation service to safely remove the mold. SERVPRO of Tarzana and Reseda is here 24/7/365.

To prevent the mold growth, you will need to get your property completely dry within a 48- 72 hour window. To do this, you can contact SERVPRO at any time.  We specializes in water damage restoration and emergency water extraction. We have the professional water removal equipment and drying equipment to get the job done as quickly as possible. We live by our slogan, "Like it never even happened".

Even though water may start out as Category 1, that doesn’t mean it will stay there. Any contamination that the water touches, such as dirty carpet or soil, can change your water damage Category to 2 or even Category 3.  Since standing water breeds bacteria, the longer the water is around, the worse the contamination of your property.

More contamination means that SERVPRO of Tarzana and Reseda's restoration team will have to use more aggressive measures to clean your structure and property, and it might mean that soft furnishings, like your carpet, the carpet pad, or even furniture may have to be discarded for your safety.

Water damage can be dangerous and expensive, so preventing water damage is an important part of home maintenance. But if you know the basics of what to do once it happens, you can prevent it from doing its worst.

Even if these items are smoke damaged, they can be treated and cleaned separately.

  • Mitigation: To prevent existing damage from worsening or causing additional problems, the fire restoration process will also involve setting up tarps and barriers (e.g. to cover roof damage), turning off gas or water lines, and other temporary fixes that are necessary while more permanent solutions are developed.

  • Clean Up: Once damage has been mitigated, restoration professionals can then start cleaning away all the ash, soot, and smoke stains from the walls and ceilings, and clean and deodorize your carpets. If the area was flooded, they may also perform water damage restoration.

  • Repair & Replacement: Some parts of your home or business may have become so charred that they require replacement rather than cleanup.
