Flood Water Damage

Water Damage can come in various degrees depending on many factors. Professionals have classified the various levels of Water Damage into four main classifications. All MicroTech professionals are IICRC certified in Water Damage Restoration. IF you have any questions or would like to learn more about our services feel free to contact us. We have an A+ BBB rating and are proud of the customer service we provide.

Class 1 Water Damage – Slow Evaporation Rate:

Water losses that affect only part of a room or area, or losses with lower permeance/porosity materials (e.g., plywood, particle board, structural wood, VCT, concre

te). Little or no wet carpet or padding is present. Minimum moisture is absorbed by materials, releasing moisture slowly.

Class 2 Water Damage – Fast Evaporation Rate:

Water losses that affect an entire room or carpet and cushion. Water has wicked up walls 12″ – 24”. There is moisture remaining in structural materials (e.g., plywood, particleboard, structural wood, concrete).

Class 3 Water Damage – Fastest Evaporation Rate:

Water may have come from overhead. Ceilings, walls, insulation, carpet, cushion and sub-floor in the entire area are saturated.

Class 4 Water Damage – Specialty Drying Situations:

These consist of wet materials with very low permeance/porosity (hardwood, plaster, brick, concrete, stone). Typically, there are deep pockets of saturation, which requires very low specific humidity.

MicroTech offers both Water Damage Restoration services as well as Emergency Water Removal and Extraction and Structural Drying Services.
