Water restoration happens fast in Hyde Park homes, with SERVPRO leading the way

One of the biggest issues after an unresolved water damage incident is the risk of contamination. If water restoration at your Hyde Park home is not done promptly, the elevated moisture can create a conducive environment for the microbes to thrive.  

SERVPRO techs take utmost precautions during water restoration of your Hyde Park home if they suspect contamination. Once the techs arrive at your property, the crew chief determines the extent of contamination by categorizing water into the following categories-

  • Category 1: Sanitary water, least risk of contamination 
  • Category 2: Significantly contaminated 
  • Category 3: Grossly contaminated 

While category 1 does not involve any special precautionary measures, categories 2 and 3 require much stricter safety protocols. 

When is demolition necessary during the water cleanup of your Hyde Park home? 

The IICRC S500 guidelines state that restorers should carry out a controlled demolition in the following two scenarios-

  • If the material is unsalvageable
  • To expose hidden material for treatment

Whether a given material is salvageable or not depends on several factors, including the material's porosity, the nature of the contamination, and the pretest results. In some instances, the SERVPRO restorers might need to open assemblies of your Hyde Park home to access pockets of saturation and to remove unsalvageable material. 

How do SERVPRO techs address HVAC systems after water damage?

The S500 guidelines state that if category 2 or 3 water enters the HVAC, the restores must disassemble the system. SERVPRO techs remove the affected component of the HVAC system if such a situation arises.
