Water Damage Restoration

Relkogroup provides cleaning and support services for various types of water damage. Water damage can occur as the result of any number of situations, with the severity ranging from mild to disastrous.    

Regardless of whether your property has suffered from faulty plumbing or the British climate has been a contributory factor, should your home or business fall victim to unexpected water damage, the clean-up process should not be lengthy or exhausting.

This is where our water damage restoration service can help. Water damage restoration can be split into three main categories:  

Category 1 Water:

Category 1 Water - or ‘Clean Water' - is the classification for water that does not pose a substantial threat to human health. Typically, Clean Water is the result of internal losses from clean water supplies.

Category 2 Water:

Water that contains a significant amount of chemical, biological or physical contaminants is classified as Category 2 Water. Also known as ‘Grey Water,' this water causes discomfort or sickness when exposed or consumed. Grey Water carries harmful organisms and the nutrients of microorganisms. Examples of Grey Water include toilet bowl leaks, pump failures, seepage caused by hydrostatic failure and water discharge from dishwashers or washing machines.

Category 3 Water:

Category 3 Water, also known as ‘Black Water,' predominantly refers to flood water. However, if Category 2 Water is left too long, it becomes stagnant and can be reclassified as unsanitary Category 3 Water. Additionally, any toilet backflows stemming from beyond the toilet trap will also be considered Black Water.  

Whilst there are different ways of dealing with the three types of water damage restoration, they all have one fundamental thing in common; the quicker you take corrective action, the less secondary damage will occur. In fact, a speedy response can reduce the results of water damage by up to 90%.

So act fast and ensure your water damage restoration efforts achieve the best possible results. Call Relkogroup today.
