Water Damage Restoration
It doesn’t take knee-deep water in your Yorba Linda home or business to count as flooding that needs water damage specialists. ANSI/IICRC standards (https://www.iicrc.org/standards/iicrc-s500/) call for specialized drying techniques whenever more than a few square feet of carpet are wet (“Class 1”). With a larger amount of water affecting one or more rooms and working its way upwards in walls (Classes 2, 3, and 4) specialized equipment is required for faster and more aggressive drying.
Plumbing and appliance failures release sanitary water (IICRC Category 1 or 2). What most people think of as flooding involves a ground water source filled with bacteria, fungi, and viruses (Category 3). So in addition to pump out, debris removal, and repairs flood damage restoration often calls for expert disinfection.
Mold isn’t just a matter of appearance — it damages building materials and leads to sometimes serious health problems. In fact since it’s happy to grow in complete darkness you might not see it at all. But it still poses those same hazards, and spreads easily. And it loves Yorba Linda’s mild climate. It’s also important to keep in mind that black mold isn’t the only toxic species. Other colors can be toxic too. So the EPA urges homeowners and business owners to bring in professionals for anything larger than about 3 feet across (https://www.epa.gov/mold/mold-cleanup-your-home).
