Storm Damage Remediation & Restoration
Floods are ruthless…but they are no match for Cooper Construction and Restoration Inc.
Storm damage comes in varying degrees but no matter how minor it may seem immediately following this act of nature, the damage can be ongoing and not realized for weeks or months to come. Many people don’t realize that there are various types of water damage that can occur depending on the source of the flood damage.
In the case of storm damage you are usually dealing with grey water which can turn to black water. Grey water is water residue that may be minimally contaminated. In the case where this is as a result of a storm the contamination could be by way of debris that have been washed into your home environment during the storm. If this is not attended to quickly it can turn to black water, which is often highly contaminated not only with debris but dangerous bacteria. The reference to grey and black does not refer to the color of the water, but rather the rating or condition.
It is important to also realize that there are various stages of water damage that can occur as a result of storm damage and these stages are time sensitive. There is the immediate stage which consists of whatever items comes in first contact with the storm water. The next stage is the indirect contact which are those items that were not directly exposed to the storm water, but the trail of excess water has led to them. Then finally the water residue that is not removed properly with storm clean up procedures. This is the water that can quickly lead to mold and mildew problems.
