Water Damage Restoration: What You Need to Know

Services for Real Estate Pros with YourSiteNeedsMe.com

When you own a home, you're responsible for fixing it up - but if you've been the victim of water damage, you know it's tough to do.

Here's what you need to know about water damage restoration.

Water Damage: Types

There are three main types of water damage that originate from three types of water:

  • clean water
  • gray water
  • black water

Clean Water

Clean water comes from a sanitary source, like the tap or a pipe that's carrying tap water.

Gray Water

Gray water has some contaminants in it. It can come from sources like dishwashers, washing machine drains or sinks.

Black Water

Black water is dangerous. It can cause serious illness and death. Black water comes from sewer backup, flooding from rivers and streams, and other dirty sources.

What if You Have Water Damage?

If your home has water damage, it's important that you call a qualified professional right away. If you leave it untreated - or if you don't treat it properly yourself - you're opening yourself up to the risk of mold and other damage, as well.

How to Tell if You Have Mold Growth After Water Damage

If you have allergies, you might already know you have mold damage. But here's how you can tell you may have mold:

  • Moldy or musty odors
  • Visible mold growth
  • Long-term moisture problems in your home
  • Leaks
  • Past flooding damage

In almost all cases, mold needs professional removal.
