Before Making Your Insurance Claim
Before making an insurance claim we recommend you contact ExactRecon Michigan for a free assessment. This will determine the scope of needed work.
Our Exact Recon crew follows all recommendations from the IICRC S500 standards for structural drying. This standard is followed by most, if not all, insurance companies. Call Chad at (734) 352-9183 if you have any questions. We are dedicated to serving the Greater Ann Arbor area, Washtenaw County in Michigan.
Water Damage Categories
There are 3 types of water damages:
- Category 1: This is liquid from a clean and sanitary source, such as faucets, toilet tanks, drinking fountains, etc. However, category one can quickly degrade into category two.
- Category 2: This category of liquid, previously called “grey water”, has a level of contaminates that may cause illness or discomfort if ingested. Sources include dishwasher or washing machine overflows, flush from sink drains, and toilet overflow with some urine but not feces.
- Category 3: Previously known as “black water”. This is the worst classification and is extremely unsanitary. It may cause severe illness or death if ingested. Sources include sewer backup, flooding from rivers or streams, toilet overflow with feces, and stagnant liquid that has begun to support bacterial growth.
If you are unsure of the category please contact ExactRecon for a free determination of category of water.

Exact Recon Michigan: Experience Counts
We at ExactRecon have over 17 years of experience in water damage restoration, handling everything from a partially wet room to an entirely flooded house. We have helped individuals and large businesses in the southern Michigan area get back up and running as soon as possible. The most important thing is to prevent further damage to your property and to dry it fast!
In addition to our expertise and experience, we have the latest technologically advanced drying equipment in the industry. We use water vacuum machines to remove as much water as possible, as quickly as possible, to prevent the water damage from spreading any further. Then we set up high volume air movers and low grain dehumidifiers, the latest advance in drying equipment. Low grain dehumidifiers leave fewer grains of water in the air than older technology dehumidifiers which will dry your home and belongings much faster.
The faster the drying, the less chance there is of further damage or potential mold problems from the effects of high humidity. ExactRecon will also monitor the drying process with the latest moisture detecting equipment that tells us when everything is thoroughly dry, including the hidden areas behind walls and built-ins.
