Water Damage Clean Up and Assessment

Water Damage Clean Up and Assessment

SRP  has extensive experience working with insurance providers, restoration contractors, and independent clients completing water damage clean up & assessments and developing scopes of work/protocols for mitigation and restoration. SRP’s Catastrophe Response Team is always on call to mobilize to any water-related loss.

SRP  works with the client at the onset of a water-related loss to identify the category of water, determine the affected areas/materials, and identify potential health and safety risks.

Any outside water source that enters your home or business contains potentially harmful bacteria, including animal or human waste.   Category 3 water, or commonly referred to as black water, often contains infectious organisms, including intestinal bacteria such as E. coli, Salmonella, and Shigella; Hepatitis A Virus; and agents of typhoid, paratyphoid and tetanus. (www.osha.gov) Floodwater is considered a Category 3 water source, which is the worst type of classification.

Additionally, water damaged areas promote mold growth. Mold spores can cause allergy-like symptoms, respiratory problems and even infections.
