Water Damage Cleanup

The purpose of this article is to introduce the reader to a more complete understanding of water damage.  Flood Metrix defines water damage as “any water that causes the usefulness, or future use or value of any property to become impaired by water in liquid, solid or gas form.  Water damage includes primary & secondary damages.

Water Damage Cleanup

Primary water damage is caused by water in liquid form coming into direct contact with surfaces and contents within affected areas.  Standing water from busted water pipes, toilet leaks, water heaters & sump pump failures are all sources of primary water damage.  Saturated carpets, bubbling drywall, buckling hardwood floors & damaged furniture are examples of primary water damage.

Water Damage Cleanup

Secondary water damage is caused by water in its gas form which is measure by relative humidity & humidity ratio.  Secondary water damage occurs in areas where the relative humidity is sustained at 60% or above over time.  Hygroscopic damage and mold damage are the eventual results of secondary water damage.
