Restoration & Rebuild Service
CWF Restoration is honored to be the top emergency restoration company in the area. Here’s how we stack up against the competition.
Category 1 water intrusions are the result of compromised sanitary water supply lines. In order for a situation to remain Category 1, the structure cant be damaged for more than 72 hours, and materials affected must be clean and well maintained.
In order to remain a Category 2, damage must not be allowed to dwell in the structure for extended time. If the damage was originally Category 1, the damage will degrade to Category 2 after 72 hours. When damage is a Category 2, it will continue to degrade and become a Category 3 after 48 hours.
When damage has dwelled in a structure for more than 120 hours, it is said to be Category 3. Regardless of the initial source, it can be deemed Category 3 if it is allowed to dwell in the structure for five days. Removal of all highly damaged materials and thorough cleaning or surfaces to be restored is required.
Our process works through mitigating, or “minimizing the severity” of your loss. On average, every $1 spent on mitigation can save $5 in future repair costs. As response time is so critical, getting a free estimate as soon as possible is extremely important to reducing further damage and preventing mold.
