Sometimes surprises come our way. A child leaves the faucet running in the tub on the upper story of the house. You notice water dripping through your Sheetrock ceiling.

The extent of the water or mold falls under four classifications. The amount of materials and rooms damaged determine the class your repair project will fall under. If the mold or water damage is small and only one part of a wall or surface needs replacing. Inexpensive and quick, these repairs can be done by a competent homeowner or a professional at little cost. Floors and entire walls up to about a foot that have been soaked by moisture fall under class two. Cleanup and small repairs will be needed by a skilled drywall contractor. Class three involves an entire room including ceiling, subfloors, and insulation. An example of a cause for severe water damage like this would be a pipe that burst on the upper floor of a building and it ran for a long time. Professional drywall contractors will be required for this project. Cleanup will be difficult and many walls, floors, ceilings, and insulation will need to be replaced. The last classification of damage is the worst and most expensive. Long standing water from floods or hurricanes can cause severe water damage to structures. Time is the main factor in assessing category four costs for materials and labor. The longer the water sits, the higher the chance of moisture and mold spreading to other sections of the home or business.
Moisture from water damage always brings the risk of fungal growth. Only 24 to 48 hours can pass and you could have a mold infestation. Mold spores are found in almost every environment and most are harmless. Mold that has developed on a surface can spread quickly and many people are highly allergic to different types of mold spores. The longer the moisture sits, the higher the chance for mold to spread and the costs of repairing the mold damage will increase as time goes by. A qualified inspector must check your property for the extent of mold damage and will recommend a drywall contractor if it is needed.
Many homeowners repair damage done to their property but when it comes to water remediation and mold removal, consult a professional first. Small repairs can be safely done by the homeowner but having a professional drywall contractor give an assessment of the project is the right move every time.

Pricing varies based on several factors. The source of the damage can be anything from a burst pipe spilling clean water to a sewage line that was backed up and black water has flooded your basement. The source type changes the price based on the health risks involved. There are three categories of water sources. Clean water, or drinking water, is clean and damage is caused by a faucet overrunning, a pipe that has become damaged, leaky toilets, damaged water heaters, and even rain coming through an open window. This category is the least harmful and easiest to repair. Category two is called grey water. This type of damage is usually caused by appliances such as dishwashers or laundry machines that have detergent or chemicals in them when the water leaks out. It’s only slightly more expensive than category one but is potentially dangerous and could cause illness. Category three is the worst of all and is called black water. Sewage backups, flooding, and storm surges are the most likely candidates for this type of damage. There is a serious risk to your health and should only be handled by professionals. The cost is highest with black water not only because of the safety precautions taken but the materials affected by black water will need to be completely replaced and not just repaired.
