White water (potable water), is the most common type of water damage caused by broken pipes or over-flown sinks, etc. Although this type presents no immediate danger to health and life, quick action will minimize the damage to property.
Grey water (clean waste water), is often caused by a faulty washing machine, dishwasher, sump pump failures & drainage leaks. Grey can contain contaminants which could lead to sickness and structural damage.
Black water (sewage), can contain dangerous bacteria and fungi. The most common source of black water is overflowing toilets & sewage pipe breaks. These types of conditions require immediate action as soon as possible.

Damage Restoration Process
Restoration is the process of restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet, or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
We clean all of the restorable items and structures damaged by the water. Our professionals are trained to provide sanitizing treatments and to remove odors and deodorize your property.
We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water that is harder to access. Our team will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property, which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.
We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage. We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.
The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources.

We had a flood due to an incorrect/incomplete installation of a washing machine in the early evening. Called up Richie at Mighty Dry, and he was able to send over Jose that same night to document the damage and start the water mitigation process. After a couple of days of drying out, Jose sent over the demo crew, Nate and Marquis, to start the process of removing all the ruined material. Great service… would definitely recommend.J D.9/18/2022

Main Types of Water Damage
There are 3 categories of water damage.
#1 – White water (or clean water)
The most common type to cause any water damage usually caused by busted pipes or leaks. This water is clean, meaning it has not mixed with any cleaning chemicals like soaps or any other contaminants. Acting quickly when treating a white water leak will help reduce the risk of water damage.
#2 – Grey water (or clean waste water)
Grey water is usually mixed with household products like laundry detergent, dish soap, etc., and is generally caused by a leaky sink or by a washing machine’s loose hose. Fast action when dealing with grey water is recommended as the soapy chemicals can be harmful to your health and will also help lessen the water damage.
#3 – Black water (sewage water)
Black water can be harmful to your health as it contains human waste products and other bacteria. Black water is often caused when a sewage pipe ruptures and requires immediate action.

Some cases may need full work done involving demolition, drying and repairs/ restoration, while others need minimal work.
Water stains are of dark yellow color and in a halo shape. This kind of damage is often linked to a roof leak and you can call out a specialist such as Mighty Dry to look at the damage for you and fix up the roof. Another reason, but not as likely, is a hot water geyser leak. This is only possible if a geyser is located above the water-damaged location. A specialist will be able to look into this for you in order to fix it, however, in some cases, the geyser may need to be replaced.
The bubbling of paint is linked to the paint losing the ability to adhere to the surfaces behind it. The bubbles are either water or air-filled. This may be caused due to different reasons.
The surface was dirty prior to painting.
The best way to resolve this issue is by scraping the paint off, patching the area, then properly cleaning the surface prior to painting the surface. Allow the surface to completely dry before priming and painting.
Not applying primer prior to painting can lead to bubbles.
If bubbles appear, use the scraping-and-patching method, clean the surface, wait to dry, then apply a stain-blocking primer.
The area painted on or the surrounding areas were too hot.
When there are heat-generating appliances or bright direct sunlight during painting or shortly after, bubbling may appear. To solve this, scrape away the bubbles, clean the surface, let dry, then prime the surface. Paint the surface again when the temperature reaches between 50-85 degrees Fahrenheit.
The area painted on or the surrounding areas were moist.
Whether moisture on walls is linked to high humidity or leaks, inspecting the root of the problem is crucial to remedy the issue and prevent further damage to the surfaces. Hiring a team of professionals such as Mighty Dry to look into the issue can help determine the next step.
When the paint is peeling from surfaces, it could mean there is water damage present. It’s a good idea to check for plumbing issues or a leaky roof. Hiring a team of professionals like Mighty Dry will allow us to determine the source of the issue. Once the root of the problem has been addressed, prep the surface using a putty knife, sand the area to smooth out surrounding areas, prime the area, then repaint the patches.
In the event of water leaking out of the light fixture, taking the proper precautions is extremely important as it could be an incredibly dangerous situation.
Firstly, alarm everyone in the house of the severity of the incident and ensure everyone stays away from all electrical sources. Remove any individual from the affected room and close off access to it. Next, turn off the water and electricity in the room by going to the main water valve and the fuse box. This will minimize the chance of an electrical fire.
It is then crucial to call licensed professionals; you will need a restoration company such as Mighty Dry and an electrician. Once the house is cleared, the source of the issue has been identified and the restorations have been completed, you are safe to return back to the space.
Discovering a cold area on a carpet may mean there is moisture in the ground. You can double-check this by applying paper towels to the ground then placing a heavy object on top. Check back after a few minutes if the paper towel appears damp.
If the problem has occurred for a while, there may be permanent water damage and the development of mold. It is important to call upon a team of professionals such as the Mighty Dry team to inspect the problem. There may have been a pipe burst and if so, handling the issue quickly can ensure the mold growth does not spread and the severity of the water damage does not increase.
Even the best water heaters will leak at some point. This may mean a fixing of the damaged area or depending on the severity, a total replacement of the water heater may be necessary.
The first step is to determine where the leak is coming from. This may be directly from the water heater, or it could be from surrounding walls and surfaces that trickle down to the water heater. If it is found the leak is directly from the water heater, turning off the water supply will help from the leak continuing, and turning off the power supply (whether from the fuse box or the gas supply depending on what heats the water) will help diminish any safety hazards.
Next, check for the reason for the leak. If unsure, call upon a professional to assess the situation for you. The last crucial step is to ensure the leak does not cause any permanent damage to the surrounding areas. It may be of value to contact professionals such as Mighty Dry to ensure no permanent damage form.
If your water heater is failing, there may be a variety of reasons for this to occur. For one, there may be internal rust or sediment buildup, in addition to possible corrosive fumes damaging the tank. It is also possible that the water pressure is too high for the heater or the water heater is too small for its needs. Lastly, water heaters can damage with old age so simply replacing them may be the only solution.
Whatever reason led to your water heater failing, turn off the water supply to prevent leakage or any further damage from happening due to the leak. The next step if the water heater is leaking is to drain the tank to eliminate any remaining water from the tank. Next, call a plumber so that they can assess the situation and recommend the proper next steps. If the water heater caused a serious leak, you may need to call a restoration company such as Mighty Dry to damage control the situation and fix up any surfaces the water has seeped through.
An air conditioning system leaking is caused by only a couple of things. One possibility is the air filter being clogged up. A clogged air filter may be due to it being dirty causing the air to struggle to pass through causing the evaporator coils to become frozen. Another reason is for the drain pan, which houses the evaporator coils, to be cracked or to overflow. The last cause is a clogged condensate drain line backed up by debris, fungi, or algae. If you witness any of these, call upon a professional repair team to inspect the situation and recommend the proper care.
If the leaks have caused serious damage to nearby surfaces, call a team of experts such as Mighty Dry who can help restore the surrounding areas to prevent permanent water damage or mold growth.
