Water extraction is the process by which water is removed from a structure, be it a residential home or a commercial or industrial building. Typically extracting water is necessary when some sort of appliance or item within a property has malfunctioned and created an overflow of standing water. Common culprits are refrigerators that leak, toilets that overflow, water heaters that malfunction, or pipes that burst. In some instances, sewage back-up can occur and cause your home or office to become flooded with dangerous waste-water.
Unfortunately, floods are not an uncommon occurrence. Any source of uncontrolled water can potentially cause serious damage. The small drip of the kitchen or bathroom faucet that never overflowed the basin could one day result in a pool in the same room or even entire house if certain conditions are present. Flood water has been traditionally placed into two categories, black and gray water. Black water is from outside water, such as streams and raw sewage. Gray water will come from within your unit and includes that from the toilet, dishwater, and sinks.
Regardless of the source of water damage and flood, State 2 State Restoration wants to remind you to take caution when entering a property that has been affected. A call to a professional may be the first step to taken before even returning to the affected commercial or residential building, depending on how extensive the damage is
