Water damage refers to a variety of potential losses resulting from water intrusion that will allow biological attack of some sort on a structure or system. There are many different causes of water damage. These include runoff from land into a body of water (through a river, stream, lake, or pond), seepage from underground masonry sources into a body of water (through dams and other man-made structures designed to control flooding), incursions by insects and animals into residential, commercial, or agricultural buildings, the failure of a sewage treatment facility to treat water, rain and ice damage, and more.

Water damage repair and restoration involve addressing potential harms caused by water entry, which is usually visible to the naked eye, and repairing or replacing whatever was affected. When considering damage to structures, it is important to identify its location and to determine whether there will be ongoing challenges associated with restoring the structure to its original condition. This could include dealing with structural deficiencies, the need to replace materials that have become compromised, the presence of contaminants, and the time required for the rebuilding process to be satisfactory. Water damage restoration services will often utilize specialized equipment and products in order to best complete the job.
When water damage occurs in a home, the first step is often to notify a home owner’s insurance company. Insurance companies often work with homeowners to determine the extent of the damage, and the extent of potential damages associated with the cleanup process. After the insurance company determines the extent of the damage, they will require documentation detailing the type of damage, the steps taken to contain the damage, and what has been done to restore the property to its previous function and status. This documentation is also used by the water restoration company to ensure that the cleanup is proceeding according to schedule and that no further damage is occurring.
