Facts to Consider

Water Damage Restoration Cost

The cost of water damage restoration services depends on a few factors. The three most important considerations are listed below

R

Clean water is the least expensive to mitigate. This is water from a broken pipe or water supply line to an appliance. It does not contain chemicals or organic waste of any kind.

R

The cost of gray water damage restoration is slightly higher. Gray water is water that might have contaminants or chemicals in it. It may come up from drains (including your showers, bathtubs, sinks, clothes washer or dishwasher drains) aquariums, leaking water beds, and more.

R

The cost of Black Water is greater due to the proper steps needed to mitigate the damage.

Black water is water that has been contaminated by floodwaters or sewage. It can wash into your home due to a storm event, backed-up toilet, or clogged sewage line near your home. This water can contain bacteria, mold, and viruses and can be extremely dangerous to your health. If black water damage isn’t quickly and thoroughly addressed by experts, you home or business can become contaminated and unsafe to occupy.

Class of water damage is determined by the probable rate of evaporation based on the type of materials affected, or wet, in the room or space that was flooded. Determining the class of water damage is an important first step and will determine the amount and type of equipment utilized to dry-down the structure.

Class 1 - Slow Rate of Evaporation. Affects only a portion of a room. Materials have a low permeance/porosity. Minimum moisture is absorbed by the materials. Class 1 is indicated when less than 5% of the total square footage of a room (ceiling+walls+floor) are affected.

R

Class 2 - Fast Rate of Evaporation. Water affects the entire room of carpet and cushion. May have wicked up the walls, but not more than 24 inches. Class 2 be indicated when 5% to 40% of the total square footage of a room (ceiling+walls+floor) are affected.

R

Class 3 - Fastest Rate of Evaporation. Water generally comes from overhead, affecting the entire area; walls, ceilings, insulation, carpet, cushion, etc. class 3 be indicated when greater than 40% of the total square footage of a room (ceiling+walls+floor) are affected.

R

Class 3 - Specialty Drying Situations. Involves materials with an exceptionally low permeance/porosity, such as hardwood floors, concrete, crawlspaces, gypcrete, plaster, etc. Drying generally requires exceptionally low specific humidity to accomplish drying.

What Causes Water Damage in Homes?

Being aware of the likeliest causes of water damage enables homeowners to take preventative or remedial action quickly by calling up a trusted water damage Long Island service like 911 Flood of Long Island.

Old concealed plumbing can spring a leak. Bulging pipes and water stains on walls, ceiling, and floors indicate plumbing-related water damage. We advise that homeowners check the pipe’s insulation every winter.

Aged appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators, and dishwashers can lead to a quickly spreading puddle. Usually, rusted pipes and weakened hoses are the culprits.

Natural disasters such as snowstorms, windstorms, and hurricanes can result in flooded basements, crawlspaces, and attics.

HVAC systems inside a house can result in unexpected flooding. These should be checked and maintained regularly.

A broken-down sump pump during the rainy season, hurricane season, or snowy winters can lead to severe water damage related issues in homes.

highly recommend them to anyone

A middle of the night call to Flag Enterprises regarding a flooded basement resulting in a quick response. Upon returning to our house, we found that the basement had flooded through a window well after a storm. The entire basement floor was covered, sheetrock walls were already absorbing water. Flag responded quickly and expertly. They removed the water, dried out the area, and removed any resulting debris. I would highly recommend them to anyone with a wet basement or flooding issues.
