Your home is probably the single biggest buy you’ll ever make. And if fire or flood destroys your house, you will be shocked at the extent of the destruction.

Water damage can come from three possible sources, each giving the cleaning professional a different set of challenges. Class 1 is pure water, as from split lines of pipe. Category 2 is water which may be contaminated from a source. And category 3, as from a sewer backup, is “black” water-water which may contain sewage.
Fire loss may be divided into three groups, too. The first is minor damage, small in size, without any structural implications. Second is a bigger explosion, so it may inflict significant harm to a small residential environment. Finally, category three is a major structural damage, and will most likely require professional repair.
Whatever type of damage your home has suffered, after the incident the damage doesn’t just stop. Mold and mildew may develop on surfaces that are damp, including behind walls where it is not noticeable. This can pose a significant health hazard, particularly if a family member has a history of respiratory issues.
Untreated mold or mildew may make a home uninhabitable and ruin its value.
And when fire, flood, or both have destroyed your house, time is a major factor. The quicker fixes are made, the less risk there is of mildew or mold formation, or more structural failure after effects.
While some people choose to do their own repairs, using tactics such as opening doors and windows and running full blast air conditioners, restore water damage professionals have special equipment to accelerate the drying process. To learn more about the do-it-yourself options, you may research the process of repairing water damage. But if boots, rubber gloves and disinfectants aren’t your thing, or if there’s more than minor damage, you’ll probably see a professional calling best.

These firms, although being very good at cleaning carpets, lack the equipment and experience to cope with the other facets of fire and water damage: damage to personal property, damage to furniture, and particularly structural harm.
Other companies still advertise restore services, but use in a countable undertrained subcontractors with little or no equipment or training to do the work. When the contractor may not turn up, or do a substandard job, you can not have a local connection because the client is hundreds of miles removed from the Internet.
