Water Damage Restoration - What Is It?


Water damage restoration is the process of restoring a house to its initial state after it has been damaged by water. These damages can occur as a result of an overflow, flood, or any other water damage occurrence. Water damage restoration involves several key processes like loss assessment, classification based on the water contamination levels, decontamination, monitoring, and completion of the process.



Loss Assessment and Categorization

Loss assessment is the first process of water damage restoration in Manhattan . This stage is important in order to establish the extent of the damage so that proper and adequate restoration method is adopted. In order to efficiently restore any water damage, technicians and insurance companies must work together to understand the damage and determine how to carry out the restoration process.

Essentially, the activities of this stage include:

  • Identifying the source of the damage
  • Documenting the damage
  • Making accurate estimations for proper and effective water damage restoration

Furthermore, classification and categorization of the water damage depend on the contamination levels of the water source. The three major categories are:


  • Water comes from clean sources like sinks, pipes or toilets without feces or urine
  • Water contains some contaminants like water from washing machines, dishwashers or toilets with urine or feces.
  • Water is highly unclean and capable of causing severe illness or even death. Such water includes sewage water, standing water with a microbial infestation, floodwater, and so on.


Decontamination and Drying

After the water damage has been evaluated and categorized, the next stage is the decontamination process. Based on the assessment, water damages can be classified into 4 types.


  • Loss is restricted to a small area and water has been absorbed by the materials which can cause a slow evaporation rate.
  • Water damage is extended to the entire room and the carpet area.
  • When a whole area is saturated with water
  • When there are serious saturation pockets.

Perhaps, the most important stage of water damage restoration in Manhattan is decontamination. For this process, pieces of equipment like dehumidifiers, scrubbers, and subfloor drying equipment will be used. Also, decontamination is done after the affected area has been identified and the extent of contamination has been ascertained.


Monitoring and Completion


Monitoring is essential after the decontamination and restoration process has been ascertained. This is essential in order to ensure that the desired result is achieved. This stage requires a lot of attentiveness and attention. It involves checking if the drying equipment is properly set up, assessing the quality of work done and supervising the restoration process.

Proper monitoring also ensures that proper and necessary steps are taken in case anything goes wrong during the restoration process. On the overall, the entire water damage restoration process would be regarded as completed once the temperature, humidity, and moisture content are equivalent to the industry standard. The drying equipment can then be removed once the drying process is complete.
