Ceritfied Techs Handle All Phases Of Flood Damage From Mitigation, Restoration to Reconstruction
Jarvis employs specialty equipment that helps determine moisture levels and water damage in assessing a strategy to restore a property that has suffered from water damage. Determining the class of water in an important first step, and will be critical in deploying the type of equipment necessary to dry down a structure. You can see our team members performing water damage repair services online.
Water damage is broken into four classes
Class 1 Typically a small area is effected and there is little or no wet carpeting. Minimum moisture has been absorbed in the materials and there is usually a quick drying time.
Class 2 Generally this involves an entire space, or room, flooded with wicking less than twenty four inches.
Class 3 Larger scale water damage, usually flooding that originates from overhead and saturates ceilings, walls, carpet, cushion and subfloors and has the potential to rise above two feet from the foundation. This requires a high level of extraction
Class 4 This refers to unique materials that require specialty drying techniques, such as a hardwood or brick floor. Specialty drying equipment is required such as injectidry or desiccant humidifiers.
Our Process Involves
Immediate emergency assessment of property structure, electrical and plumbing
Identify the source of the water leak
Initiate the repair of the source of water leak. If the source is determined to be a plumbing related issue, we will recommend a certified plumbing contractor to fix the broken or damaged plumbing.
Extract the water utilizing specialized equipment
Depending on the severity of the water damage, once the water has been extracted we can begin to assess the property to determine what may be salvageable and what will need to be removed from the home or business.
Thoroughly dry the structure
Inspect for mold damage
When necessary we can employ the resources of our full service construction department to restore fully your residential or commercial property.
