Water Damage Classification in Newtown & Southbury, CT

The sooner the restoration is done against water damage, the better it is for the safety of the property. Needless to say, it has to be done by a professional team, as homeowners lack the necessary skills and equipment to complete the process. That's why professional assistance is required to achieve successful and sustainable results.

New England Restoration is always well-prepared to secure your property from the damage caused by excess water. We assess the damaged area before starting the restoration to classify the water and determine the extent of damage. Then, based on the classification, we design our restoration process.

Classes of Water Damage

There are 4 classes of water damage, each indicating a distinct level of damage. These are:

Class 1: It's the presence of water at the minimum level that requires minor restoration to bring back the pre-condition of the affected materials or areas that are mostly non-porous.

Class 2: In this case, a significant amount of water is absorbed by the affected surfaces. To get rid of this damage condition, comprehensive water extraction is required.

Class 3: It indicates severe conditions where walls, subfloor, ceilings, etc. become moistened by the water where a specialized extraction technique is necessary.

Class 4: When the excessive presence of water compromises the structural strength of a property, that's class 4. In this situation, it takes time for the drying process to bring back the integrity of different saturated parts such as hardwood, stone, bricks, etc.

Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Our comprehensive water damage restoration process includes the following: 

Inspection: First, we conduct an inspection to assess the damage caused by water and classify the water.

Estimating: Then, we conduct an estimation to determine the need for manpower, materials, and the overall cost of restoration.

Categorization: Afterward, we categorize the water to identify whether the intruded water is clean, grey water, or black water.

Water extraction: Then, we thoroughly extract the standing water from the property. 

Structure drying: After removing water, we dry the area to prevent mold growth.

Content drying: We also conduct content drying to prevent further damage.
