Water Damage Repair

Rain, leaking pipes, water over flow, and floods lead to varying levels of water damage.

Each level requires acute assessment and remediation based on accurate diagnostics.

Disaster Link has the trusted experience combined with state-of-the-art equipment needed to treat primary and secondary water damage. It’s important to address water intrusion quickly because remedy becomes increasingly difficult if neglected. Additionally, mold can occur due to delayed response, insufficient drying, and improper monitoring. Save yourself from additional damage and contact Disaster Link right away.


Levels of Water Damage

Level 1

Clean water originated from the source that does not pose substantial harm to humans. Examples include: broken water supply lines, melting ice or snow, falling rainwater, broken toilet tanks and toilet bowls that do not contain contaminants or additives. Clean water may deteriorate as it dissolves or mixes with soils and other contaminants, and as time elapses.

Level 2

Gray water contains a significant level of contamination and has the potential to cause discomfort or sickness if consumed by or exposed to humans. Gray water may contain chemicals, bio-contaminants (fungal, bacterial, viral, algae) or other contaminants. Examples include: discharge from dishwashers or washing machines, over flows from washing machines, hydrostatic pressure, broken aquariums, and punctured water beds. Gray water that remains untreated for longer than 48 hours may escalate to Level 3.

Level 3

Black water contains pathogenic agents and is grossly unsanitary. Anyone with compromised immune systems, respiratory problems or allergies, plus young children and the elderly must remain off the jobsite until the building is judged safe for occupancy. Black water includes sewage and other contaminated water sources entering or affecting the indoor environment – including toilet backflows and all forms of flooding from seawater, ground surface water, and rising river water. Level 3 water can contain contaminants such as pesticides, heavy metals or toxic substances.
