Water Extraction & Structural Drying

At K-tech Kleening, we understand how important it is to extract the water as quickly as possible to prevent further damage to your property and your belongings. Removal of the excess water is achieved by using our truck mounted water pumps or submersion pumps. We will extract any standing water, and remove as much water as possible from carpets and other flooring so the drying process can begin.

We use specialized, high-powered drying equipment to quickly and effectively dry your home or business. We know that it is important to you to return to normal as soon as possible, and will provide you with the resources necessary to do so.

Types of Water Damage

There are several categories of water based on the level of contamination present in the water. The category of water present will determine what steps will be necessary for cleanup and restoration.

Category 1 water is clean water from a sanitary source, such as a broken water supply line. Category 2 water, or grey water, and this type of water could cause illness if ingested. This would include dishwasher or washing machine overflows and drain water. Category 3, or black, is the most heavily contaminated water, and can cause severe illness or even death if ingested. Examples of Category 3 water includes sewage, floodwaters, and water that has bacterial growth.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging cameras let us see what cannot be seen by the naked eye – hidden areas of moisture. When water has saturated ceilings and walls, thermal imaging reveals hidden “wet spots” where water has travelled but is not yet visible. Detecting where this hidden water is located is important for both the protection of your property as well as the prevention of mold growth following water damage.

The thermal imaging camera works by detecting areas of heat, and wet spots that are saturated with water will conduct and store heat better than unaffected areas and will appear as a “wet spot” on the camera’s display. The Water Mitigation Technician will then determine the most effective way to dry that area.
