When you call Our Flood Specialists, you will get a Miami area restoration company with the knowledge in disaster clean-up and restoration. Our certified technicians bring the training and courteous attitude to make a complicated situation as stress-free as possible. Water intrusion in your home or business can cause major damage. Depending on the source and degree of the intrusion, you may need to have professional assistance with anything ranging from carpet and upholstery cleaning to sewage removal.
Water losses are categorized into three categories:
• Category 1 - A clean water spill relatively free of contaminants.
• Category 2 - A significant level of contaminants, but free of sewage. (Gray Water)
• Category 3 - "Grossly Unsanitary" level of contaminants. (Black Water)
A Category 3, or Black Water, contamination poses the greatest health risk and requires the removal of any affected carpet. However, area rugs can sometimes be sanitized and salvaged by a qualified carpet cleaning contractor.
