Our Process for Developing an Appropriate Water Damage Repair Plan for a Vermillion, Ohio Home

11/17/2023 (Permalink)

In November 2022, a significant water damage event occurred due to a washing machine overflow in one Vermillion home. The overflow affected the laundry room, living room, and the basement below, resulting in damage to flooring, ceilings, and walls.

When the owners of this home contacted us, we started preparing for a water damage restoration project. Read on to learn about how we used our water damage restoration services to revamp the safety and functionality of their home.

Our Process for Tackling This Vermillion, Ohio Water Damage Repair Project

The restoration team, led by Geoffrey Freeman, initiated the cleanup process promptly. Safety precautions were put in place, ensuring a safe working environment. Equipment was strategically placed, and efforts were made to keep the customer informed about the restoration schedule.

This Vermillion, Ohio water damage restoration project involved the meticulous removal of damaged materials, including flooring and ceilings, as well as decontamination and cleanup. Approval was sought for necessary repairs, particularly concerning ceramic and hardwood components.

Loss Information We Collected

Here are some of the details we collected on this project:

  • Category of water – 2
  • Days to achieve dry standard – 6.97
  • Drying zones – 3
  • Class of water – 2
  • Total affected square footage – 721.71

Since this Vermillion water damage repair project was classified as a 2, we knew immediate action was required. Class 2 water damage means there is more extensive damage present and a larger amount of water than in a Class 1 incident. Additionally, it suggests that a greater portion of the room may have been impacted, including the carpet and walls.

The longer water damage goes untreated, the more likely it is to escalate to a higher class, because the water is further absorbed into the floors and walls. This may cause secondary damage like mold growth, which introduces a risk to the inhabitants of the space.

Thankfully, our team was able to jump on this project quickly and restore the home to its proper condition.
