Our Water Damage Restoration Services
Every situation is a bit different, but the IICRC (the world-wide non-profit leader in our industry) guidelines provide some classifications based on the amount of water that guide drying and dehumidification strategies. They range from Class 1 (little or no wet carpet and only part of a room affected) to Class 4 (several rooms involved, saturated flooring, and water migration more than a foot upwards inside walls).
It’s important to note that although surfaces may appear to have dried out there can still be destructive levels of moisture deep within the structure, even weeks later. That’s why insurance companies typically require professional water damage restoration services if secondary damage is to be covered when filing your claims.
IICRC guidelines also categorize flooding based on the source of water. Category 1 is directly from plumbing, Category 2 is from contaminated sources such as dishwashers, and Category 3 is from a ground water source (such as natural flooding). After 24 hours all categories are to be considered unsanitary so besides debris removal, drying, and cleaning flood damage restoration requires specialist attention to containment and disinfection.
Flood Damage Restoration
Even though the climate in Torrance has generally low humidity, it still takes aggressive drying to prevent further deterioration such as hardwood flooring and even framing warping and drywall sagging or disintegrating. Our crews typically accomplish in 3 to 4 days what nature would take weeks to do. We begin with surface water extraction using powerful vacuum equipment. Far more effective that that used by carpet cleaners we use it on walls and ceilings as well as flooring to quickly lower indoor humidity and protect building surfaces and your possessions. We then complete rapid structural drying using an array of refrigerant dehumidifiers, specialized spot-dryers, and high-capacity blowers.
Sewage removal is something you should never tackle yourself. The health risks and technical know-how necessary for thorough disinfection are simply too great. Did you know that specific regulations cover transporting such wastes through Torrance for proper disposal? Or that bacteria and germs become airborne so that besides special clothing and respirators it’s necessary to isolate the affected area? Our certified antimicrobial technicians manage all that, and assure immaculate cleaning and disinfection. Sewage damage cleanup may also include repairs, as any materials that came in direct contact with a sewage backup must be removed and discarded if they can’t be heat sterilized.
Mold is the most common form of water damage, occurring almost anywhere there’s lingering moisture. Besides issues of appearance its health implications range from minor annoyances to very serious conditions. So it’s important to keep in mind that you could have a big problem even if you can’t see it. Why? A kind of fungus, mold doesn’t need light so it can be hiding above ceilings, inside walls, underneath carpet, in basements, or within crawl spaces.
Due to the health risks and the ease of spreading spores, all but the smallest mold removal jobs should be performed by a specially licensed company such as Regal. We follow EPA, IICRC, and OSHA checklists to the letter for proper isolation and air purification, and absolutely thorough spore and mold removal. We’ll apply an eco-friendly mildicide, decontaminate surrounding areas, and neutralize odors. All wastes will be properly transported and disposed of to keep you and your Torrance neighbors healthy.
