Decontamination and Drying
After the evaluation is complete, the process of drying and decontaminating begins at the site. Based on the extent of damage, damage caused due to water can be classified into 4 types. Class 1 Damage- When loss is restricted to a small area and less water has been absorbed by materials. This results in slow evaporation rate. Class 2 Damage – When the damage is to the entire room and carpet area. Class 3 Damage – When the entire area is saturated with water and Class 4 Damage – when there are many deep saturation pockets. Decontamination and drying is a key stage in Water damage restoration and equipments like blowers, dehumidifiers, scrubbers and subfloor drying equipments have to be used. Decontamination has to be done if contamination has been detected in the area. Decontamination may be done for the entire area or in specific pockets where contamination has been detected.
Monitoring and Completion
Monitoring the restoration process of damage caused due to damage is critical to achieve the desired results. One has to be proactive during the monitoring process. Checking if the drying equipment is setup properly, assessing if the personnel involved are qualified for the job and checking if the equipments are in working order are all part of the monitoring process. Necessary steps are to be taken if anything wrong is spotted during the monitoring process. The entire process of water damage restoration would be classified as complete only once the humidity, temperature and the moisture content is as per industry standards. Upon completion of the water damage restoration process, the drying equipment can be removed.
Most fires accidents at home are caused by reasons that are easy to avert. There are no more effective ways to safeguard your home from fire than remaining alert to possible threats and taking precautions to ensure that such an accident does not occur. Though you cannot reverse the destruction, you can claim the damage amount-but only if the property and the goods and items inside are insured.
No one knows your property better than you do. The insurance agent will be well-versed in the laws and the technical processes involved in assessing the loss and filing for claims. But you are the best person to determine the damages and their true extent. So, while filing for an insurance claim you should be pro-active in going over the house and run through your belongings to assess the damages. Else, certain damages might go unidentified and you will you receive less compensation than you are liable to.
If you are aware of the types of fire damage, you can file for the appropriate insurance claim and also ensure that the renovation process is thorough. Generally, reparable fire damage can be classified into three categories. These are the following:
* There is some amount of smoke damage throughout the property and layers of soot cover extensive parts. These may be caused by a stove or a pot overheating and catching fire. The smoke that is thus produced gets charged electro-statically and clings to everything that comes on its path. Smoke from fire does not spare the walls and ceiling too.
* Damages are more severe if the fire manages to goes through the ceiling and come in contact with the trusses supporting the roof of the building. In some cases, the trusses may also get burned. In such instances, one or two rooms in the house, usually those in close proximity to the fire, may also be extensively damaged.
* In the third case, the interior of the house is affected extensively and the roof has been burned completely at many places. These are usually expensive to repair. Sometimes, fire may also harm the structure of the house and this may not be apparent readily. The damages need to be detected thoroughly before the renovation starts.
Water damage describes a large number of possible losses caused by water intruding where it will enable attack of a material or system by destructive processes such as rotting of wood, growth, rusting of steel, de-laminating of materials such as plywood, and many others.
