Category 3 Water Damage? No Problem!

Whenever you have a sizable leak, flooding, or a significant spill, water cleanup is more than letting carpets dry and mopping up puddles. Water damage restoration in Buford means our team takes the time to sanitize contaminants, remove unsalvageable contents and materials, and clean whatever we can. 

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) breaks down water categories as follows:

  • Category 1 – is clean water from a sanitary source, free of contaminants and risks. 

  • Category 2 – is gray water that contains contamination that could cause hazards with exposure. Such water may contain mold, bacteria, and other contaminants and comes from dishwashers, washing machines, bathtubs, and showers.

  • Category 3 – is considered black water and holds high levels of contamination. Sources for black water often include sewage, grease runoff, and flooding that involves pathogens, chemicals, and other toxins.

Each water category calls for different cleanup methods to address possible hazards adequately. Our AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford team takes the time to thoroughly inspect and assess all impacted areas of your property to select the right equipment and processes to generate incredible results. 

With any water-damaged property, some of the fallout may include discoloration, rust, rot, swelling, and delamination. We have the processes and experience to address these conditions and more. 

What is Remediation vs. Mitigation?

Once a building gets flooded or water-damaged, cleanup generally involves three steps: water mitigation, remediation, and restoration. Some people will use the terms remediation and mitigation interchangeably. 

  • In a water damage restoration project, mitigation is always the first step and involves halting water flow, removing all the standing water, and drying out the property.

  • The following step is remediation, including cleaning, drying, odor control, and sanitizing salvageable contents and materials. 

Mitigation keeps secondary damage from developing or moisture migrating into unaffected areas. Our mitigation experts help to lessen downtime and overall costs by getting in and assessing your interior quickly and putting measures into place for containment. Remediation focuses more on the cleaning phases and addressing everything that cannot be repaired or restored. There are times when these two processes overlap. Still, the end goal is always to ensure our customers get incredible results.
