ODR restores the three types of water damage to prevent a water problem from becoming a mold problem, a structural problem…or worse.
There are three different types of water damage and each type must be restored appropriately. If losses are not properly treated according to the type of water damage, significant additional property damage such as mold, structural deterioration and a variety of health hazards can occur.
The Three Types of Water Damage
Category 1 – Clean Water: A clean water loss is just what it sounds like. It involves clean water, typically from frozen and broken pipes, ice maker hoses, failed water heaters, roof leaks, etc.
Category 2 – Grey Water: This is water that has been used to clean something and therefore may contain contamination or soiling such as food, laundry soils, body soils and body oils, etc. Grey water damage generally comes from washing machines, dishwashers, tub overflows, spas, etc.
Category 3 – Black Water/Sewage: The most serious type of water damage is black water (or sewage), which contains human and/or animal waste and typically comes from toilet, sewer and septic system back-ups or overflows. Black water is teeming with thousands of disease causing viruses, bacteria and protozoa and can cause very serious illnesses if not treated properly.
ODR first evaluates the water damage, assessing the cause and the type, and uses the techniques best suited to its restoration. The result is faster, more effective restoration that contains and eliminates the water damage, assuring it doesn’t cause other more expensive problems.
ODR delivers the highest quality, standards-based mitigation you need to restore safe environments from even the worst water damage.
Black water can contain human waste, and high concentrations of pathogens and infectious materials such as, disease causing viruses, bacteria and protozoa, that can cause very serious illnesses if not properly treated. River and lake floods may also contain industrial chemicals, fertilizer runoff and other toxic materials. Special restoration procedures must be used to properly restore buildings and contents as well as to protect the health of building inhabitants and prevent further property damage.
Because of the high toxicity levels associated with sewage problems, quick response time and a high level of expertise is required in order to fully remediate black water damage. ODR maintains the highest levels of education, training and experience to handle black water flooding and even has service vehicles specifically outfitted for this type of work, loaded and ready to serve you at a moment’s notice!
ODR works to the proper “Standard of Care” to ensure that black water damage is remediated correctly the first time, every time. This prevents further damage, future liability and protects the health of building occupants.
