FREE Water Damage Inspection Colorado Springs
For the fast and effective restoration and repair of water-damaged homes, it’s essential that a thorough assessment and water damage inspection of the Colorado Springs property is conducted. Trained professionals use equipment like moisture detectors to get readings and help determine a most appropriate action plan. Once done, the homeowner will be briefed on the extent of the damage and the scope of restoration work. The inspection will be properly documented, with specifics such as recommendations on what professional equipment and techniques will be used to restore the property back to its original state.
Here’s what we’ll do when you request a FREE water damage inspection Colorado Springs:
Identifying the Source
In cases of flooded homes due to burst pipes, trained technicians will wade right into the problem to pinpoint where the water is coming from. If the leak is still active, measures will be taken to stop the water source. Inspectors will then do safety checks and see if there’s been water contamination.
Categorization of the Damage
The IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) classifies water damage into three categories:
- Category 1 – Clean Water (Clean and sanitary water sources)
- Category 2 – Grey Water (Water contains certain levels of contaminants e.g. “used” water)
- Category 3 – Unsanitary (Water contains dangerous / unsanitary contaminants)
These categories present different levels of risk and thus require different applications of water damage and restoration techniques. The category under which a specific case of water damage falls would dictate the steps, methods, and equipment needed for restoration work to be efficient.
Inspection and Testing
The inspection will involve visual checks to get a complete understanding of the extent of the damage. Inspectors will physically take a look at every room and corner, use moisture detectors, and even take photos. The inspecting team will check for air moisture, mold problems, and other possible safety hazards. It’s crucial that the homeowner works closely with the team doing the inspection, and give information about any possible safety concerns such as lead or asbestos.
During the inspection, there may be a need to move some furniture, appliances, and some other items in the property to prevent easily avoidable problems such as rusting or staining.
Damage inspection at the beginning of the restoration process needs to be properly documented. The damage assessment document will contain detailed descriptions of the kind of damage that needs to be addressed per area/room, and supporting evidence in the form of photos. The restoration contractor will also present recommendations in the document.
Proper documentation is important, especially if homeowners have to make an insurance claim. At the same time, it gives them a clear picture of the problem and the steps that need to be taken to restore their water-damaged home.
