Types of Water Damage

There are many different circumstances that could cause you to need repairs due to water damage. Each unique situation comes with its own considerations and methods of mitigating the damage. There are endless ways your commercial or residential property could end up with water damage, including:

  • Storm Flooding

  • Plumbing Issues

  • Frozen & Burst Pipes

  • Sewage Backups

  • Ice Damming

  • Leaky Roof

Along with the circumstance that causes damage, water damage cleanup also needs to take into account the type of water that caused the damage.

Here are the three kinds of water:

Clean Water

Though it’s a hassle in its own right, clean water is not a sanitary risk, making it easier to deal with. This kind of water damage can come from plumbing problems arising from water supply lines.

Grey Water

Grey water is slightly contaminated water, typically from a broken water heater or dishwasher. The water can get into carpets, drywall, and other places that could affect the air quality in your home or business.

Black Water

This is water containing contaminants that can cause serious health risks for those exposed to it. Black water is usually water contaminated with sewage, and water from rivers, oceans, or lakes can also contain dangerous bacteria.

No matter what type of water has entered your home or business, it’s important to get it out quickly to prevent the water from seeping into other areas of the property and causing damage. Not only does this help prevent water damage, but it also helps avoid expensive repairs and restoration. That’s why our team is on call 24/7 to restore water damage in Chicago. We use the latest water extraction equipment and drying technology to make sure that water is removed quickly and efficiently.

Our Water Damage Restoration Process

The type of repairs your property needs will depend on what kind of damage it has suffered. Your first step is to contact a water damage repair company that is experienced and equipped, as subpar water removal can lead to more time and money spent later, as well as future chronic health issues.

Usually, an initial assessment is needed to determine the scope of the damage and what kind of repairs are required. At Scene Cleaners of Chicago, we have specialized equipment to help us in this assessment, including an evaluation of the unseen damage that may be hiding under the surface. This step is extremely important, as invisible damage that is not addressed can arise later as secondary water damage and cause more serious problems down the road, including mold, damaged and swollen woodwork, and serious structural damage.

Once an initial assessment is completed, the next step is to make a plan to repair and restore. 

Steps that are often necessary are:

  • Water Removal: Also called Water Extraction, this is usually the first step to a repair. This step removes the majority of the water and prevents further damage from occurring. Scene Cleaners uses powerful water pumps and other tools to accomplish this.

  • Removal of Damaged Materials: After the first step, damaged materials such as sheetrock, insulation, other building materials, and personal effects can be removed.

  • Drying: After the bulk of the water is gone, your property will need to be properly dried and dehumidified so mold does not set in. Scene Cleaners will carefully monitor the progress until it’s complete.

  • Sanitization: Regardless of what kind of water damage has occurred, the area will need to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized to prevent health risks. If the water has been there for too long, this process may include deodorizing treatments.

  • Disposal: Unfortunately, in some events of water damage, not all belongings can be salvaged, and some may need to be disposed of and replaced.
