Premier Restoration Hawaii on what to do In case of water damage
Sponsored by Premier Restoration Hawaii
First, examine the amount of damage done to your home. If the water damage has come from an unsanitary source such as a sewer, the damage is often more severe and the house may need more dramatic fixes. For most category 1 losses, which involve clean water, and category 2 losses, which involve gray water, professionals can save your carpet and drywall. For category 3 losses, the carpet and drywall typically need to be removed.
While you wait for the professionals to arrive, do your best to soak up as much water as possible. You can use shop-vacs, towels and whatever else you may have on hand to mitigate water damage.
It is also important to make sure the professional you hire to take care of water damage is IICRC certified. The IICRC is the certifying body for home restoration professionals. Premier Restoration Hawaii’s lead technicians have multiple certifications, including water, fire, smoke and mold damage.
Water damage is a hassle, so it’s best to prevent it entirely. You can do this by regularly checking your supply lines and pipes to make sure they are all functioning normally. Make sure your water pressure is below 65 PSI and replace water heaters over 15 years old.
