Water damage restoration is essential if you’ve had any type of flooding – and it’s especially important if your home or business has been affected by water that could be contaminated.

Types of Water Damage
The type of water damage restoration your home or business will need depends on the extent and type of damage. We classify water damage into three categories when we’re assessing your needs and determining what actions we need to take.
Category 1: Clean Water
Clean water comes from a clean and sanitary source, like the tap, your toilet tank, or a pipe carrying treated water.
Category 2: Gray Water
Gray water has contaminants in it. This water comes from things like your dishwasher, a washing machine overflow, or flush from sink drains.
Category 3: Black Water
Black water is the worst classification, and it’s extremely unsanitary. It can cause severe illness or even death if it’s ingested. Black water comes from sewer backup, flooding out of rivers or streams, or toilet overflow with feces. Standing water that supports bacterial growth is also considered black water.
It’s important to know that water damage always has the potential to support mold growth, too. You may need mold remediation services if spores have begun colonizing in your home or business.

About ExactRecon’s Water Damage Restoration Experience
With over 17 years of experience in water damage restoration, ExactRecon has handled everything from partially wet rooms to entirely flooded houses. We have helped individuals and large businesses in the southern Michigan area get back up and running quickly, and we can do the same for you.
In addition to our expertise and experience, we have the most 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 water damage from spreading any further. We also 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 dehumidifiers do, 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, which tells us when everything is thoroughly dry (including the hidden areas behind walls and built-ins).
