Last year hurricane Sandy left a wide path of destruction to many homes, especially along the Atlantic coastline. But one of the more insidious problems it caused was the flooding of many more homes. Anytime a home is flooded, homeowners face the very critical problem of mold setting in. Flood restoration is not a simple process, and should be done by certified water technicians. Technicians assess the water damage and determine if the damage falls into one of four classifications: class 1 damage is water that affects only a part of a room or area, where there is minimal absorption and little or no wet carpets or cushions. Class 2 damage consists of entire rooms or carpets and carpet pads. Water will have wicked up the walls less than 24″ and is moisture in the structural materials. Class 3 damage is where water has wicked up over 24″, or water may have come from overhead, affecting things like the ceiling, walls, insulation, carpets, and sub-floors. Finally, Class 4 damage consists of wet materials with very low permeance, such as hardwood, plaster, brick, concrete. These conditions require very low specific humidity to dry.
