There is much more to repairing water damage than simply allowing the affected area to dry out. Mold, shrinkage, warping, discoloring and many other aftereffects can all harm buildings or furnishings damaged by water. In order to get the best results, any company that is contracted to repair water damage should employ properly certified technicians.
The type of certification necessary will often depend on just what has suffered exposure to water. For example, if the building itself needs repair, an Applied Structural Drying certification might be needed. If subsequent mold damage is a concern, a Building Moisture Thermographer certification could help to determine that moisture levels are back to normal. If damage is significant, Substrate/Subfloor Inspection or Marble & Stone Inspector certifications can help to ensure that all structural aspects have been inspected and repaired as needed.
Since water tends to find its way into all the cracks and crevices, there is often a need to inspect the building to look for damage beyond what is obvious. Certified Ceramic Tile Inspectors, Substrate/Subfloor Inspectors or Wood Laminate Flooring Inspectors will check and verify that no hidden damage exists. Especially in the case of flooding or extensive water damage, verifying the basic building structure is essential, and certified technicians have been trained to do just that.
With water or flooding damage, many times sewage problems can lead to a contaminated environment. In such cases, a certified Advanced Sewage Remediation Technician can ensure the return to a healthful environment. An Advanced Microbial Remediation Technician or Odor Control Technician could also be necessary to remove any lingering effects caused by a sewer overflow or backup. Failing to handle such problems correctly can lead to an ongoing problem as the home or office becomes a toxic environment, negatively influencing the health of the occupants.
Many times, it is the contents of a building that have suffered water damage that will need specialized treatment and restoration. There are a variety of specialized technician certifications that might come into play, such as Carpet Cleaning Technician, Leather Cleaning Technician or Rug Cleaning Technician certifications, among many others. Having personnel trained and certified in specific areas will help to make sure that each damaged item receives the special care it requires.
Water damage to residential and commercial buildings can be similar in many ways. However, it is important to realize that each environment has its own specialized needs and techniques. It is necessary to confirm that the selected water damage company has technicians that specialize in the appropriate area. A certification for specialized training in residential carpeting or furnishings will involve training that may not be necessary in a commercial application. The reverse is also true. While there are many similarities and overlaps between the two, using a company that has specialists in the specific repairs needed will yield the best results.
