Why is Water Damage Inspection Important?

Water damage often conceals its true extent, posing significant risks to both property and health. Early detection allows for fast intervention, halting the progression of water damage and mitigating the need for extensive repairs in the future.

Identifying compromised structural elements and potential hazards ensures the safety of occupants and prevents catastrophic incidents. Prompt identification of mold growth and other contaminants minimizes health hazards associated with prolonged exposure to water damage. 

Water damage inspections look at the following:

Types of Water Damage 

Based on where the water came from and how bad the damage is, there are four types of water damage:

  1. Clean water damage is caused by clean water from a leaky tap, a broken water supply line, or rainwater getting in.
  2. Gray water damage is caused by water from washing machines, dishwashers, or other equipment that may contain germs.
  3. Sewage backup, floods, or other sources of dirty water cause blackwater damage.
  4. Gray-to-black water damage is from bacteria and pathogens in untreated gray water left standing.

The Total Process of Water Damage Inspection

Our trained technicians conduct a comprehensive visual examination of the property, meticulously scrutinizing surfaces for telltale signs of water damage such as stains, discoloration, or warping.

Moisture Detection: Advanced moisture detection tools are employed to measure moisture levels in various building materials, enabling the identification of hidden pockets of moisture behind walls, under flooring, and in other inaccessible areas.

Testing for Contaminants: Samples may be collected and tested for mold, bacteria, or other contaminants to assess the severity of the damage and potential health risks associated with exposure.

Documentation: Thorough documentation, including detailed reports and photographic evidence, is provided to the property owner, outlining the findings of the inspection and recommendations for remediation.

Recommendations: Based on the inspection findings, tailored recommendations are made for mitigation and restoration efforts, addressing both immediate concerns and long-term preventative measures.

When to Do a Water Damage Inspection?

A water damage inspection should be conducted in the following scenarios:

Post-Incident Assessment: Immediately following a water-related incident, such as a burst pipe or flooding, to accurately assess the extent of damage and initiate timely mitigation efforts.

Pre-Purchase Evaluation: Prior to purchasing a property, identify existing water damage issues and potential risks, empowering prospective buyers to make informed decisions and negotiate repair costs.

Routine Maintenance Checks: As part of regular property maintenance, to proactively detect and address minor leaks or moisture problems before they escalate into major structural issues.

We Help You Measure The Level of Damage

During a water damage assessment, inspectors use moisture detectors, like hygrometers and moisture meters, to measure the level of damage and estimate the amount of work required. This step will determine the class of the damage. It’s broken down into four types:

Class One: Less than 5% of the combined surface area impacted
Class Two: Around 5%-40% of the combined surface area impacted
Class Three: More than 40% of the combined surface area impacted
Class Four: Severe water damage. This classification means “deeply held or bound water” in materials that do not absorb water very easily, such as plaster, hardwood, or concrete.
