Services We Offer, Part 4

This is Part 4 in our series. You can find the rest of the blogs in this series, as well as all of our other articles on the News section of our website. We’ve written this particular blog series because Delta offers such a wide range of services to our customers. And, not all restoration companies offer the same services as we do (they often offer less to their customers). This post will also wrap up this series as we cover water restoration and commercial restoration.  

Water Restoration 

The most common call we receive in our industry is for water damage restoration. The causes for these losses can be anything from broken pipes, plumbing problems of all kinds, broken refrigerator ice lines, swamp coolers, to flooding or rainwater.  

Water damage cleanup consists initially of extracting as much water as possible from an affected area. Once extraction is complete, the actual drying process can begin. We place industrial-strength dehumidifiers, air movers, and sometimes specialty heating equipment until the proper level of dryness has been obtained. Every material in a home has a unique moisture percentage that we need to reach before the area can be officially considered “dry.” 

Of course, so much more goes into this process than meets the eye. The average homeowner would most likely not have success drying out an area of their home using fans and an open window. We approach all of our water restoration work using psychrometry: the field of engineering concerned with the physical and thermodynamic properties of gas-vapor mixtures (source: Wikipedia).  

In short, “dryness” is a relative term, based on a room’s humidity, total air space, and temperature. Getting material in a room to reach a specified dryness percentage takes more than a do-it-yourself approach.  

Dangers of Water Restoration 

We also recently did a blog post on the three categories of water damage. Not all water restoration projects are the same, and special care needs to be taken with gray or black water (sewage) which can be a biohazard to humans.  

If water restoration is done improperly, homeowners also run the risk of developing mold growth. When almost-dry materials sit unattended in a home over time, mold spores can easily become mold colonies, with numerous health risks involved.  

It’s always important to call a water restoration professional when confronting the aftermath of a broken pipe or flood in the home.
