Thus, prolonged or extensive black and gray water damage can shake the structural foundation of the house and bring down your property value. It is both mentally and financially crippling.
Now that you know how standing gray or black water can be dangerous, it’s crucial to act immediately once you’re hit by water damage. Remember, the more you delay, the more health and financial risks are involved.
Our cleaners visit your home and take a quick walkthrough of the entire site to identify the areas affected by flood damage and the extent of the damage. They check for mold growth on walls, absorption of water by carpets and wooden furniture, as well as closely inspect for broken and burst pipes, fecal contamination, and other such damages.
Our specialist also identifies the natural source of black and gray water damage to ensure that water doesn’t keep flowing.
They then categorize the water damage into three categories. These are clean water damage, gray water damage, and black water damage.
This is the initial step of our restoration process. It gives our specialists an idea about how to proceed with the process and helps them plan and strategize. After the assessment, they give a fair idea of the time required for cleaning as well as the restoration fee that will be charged.
The next step of the restoration process is water removal. Standing water can continue to damage your property. It can damage the electrical system of the house, which can lead to a fire. Standing water can weaken grout lines and floors and ultimately affect the structural integrity of the house. The longer the water stands in the house, the worse the outcomes are.
We use water removers like submersible pumps, truck-mounted vacuums, and portable wet/dry vacuums to draw out the water.
Despite water removal, moisture may still prevail in the house. The damp walls, wet carpets, and swollen wooden furniture can aggravate the problems further. For instance, mold growth can spread all across the walls, the plaster of the ceiling may start to bubble, the hardwood flooring might buckle, and the smell that lingers even after water removal may make you feel nauseated. Thus, drying and dehumidifying are very crucial.
At TN Flood Kings, we use industrially graded drying and dehumidifying equipment. The large fans dry out the entire house quickly and effectively. Our professionals use moisture detectors to measure the moisture content in the house before and after the drying and dehumidifying process.
A natural disaster, a leaking pipe, or any other factor may lead to gray water and black water damage. No matter what the reason is for the water damage, you should choose only TN Flood Kings for flood restoration and water damage cleanup.
