Loss is when the water originates from a sanitary water source and does not pose a substantial risk if ingested or inhaled—some example of a category I water loss: Broken water supply lines. The sink or tub overflows with no contaminants. Melting ice or snow and falling rainwater
It is identified as water that contains a significant degree of chemical, biological, or contaminants that can cause discomfort or illness when exposed to or consumed. Known as "Gray Water," this type of water damage carries microorganisms and microorganisms that can cause sickness. Examples are dishwasher or washing machine overflows, water from sink drains, or toilet overflow without feces.
This is the worst classification and is grossly unsanitary. It could cause severe illness or death if ingested. It is also classified as “black water”. Examples are sewer backup, flooding from rivers or streams, toilet overflow with feces, and stagnant liquid that has begun bacterial growth.
It is the least harmful form of damage. Materials absorb very little of the water from this type of damage. Water damage repair is the easiest in this type of situation.
It has a fast rate of evaporation, which means that carpets and cushions may be damaged. Water damage repair is more problematic when it involves class 2 damage.
The the fastest rate of evaporation. The water may come from broken sprinklers or other overhead sources, soaking the walls and furniture.

Our services include:
– Blood cleanup: We use special chemicals to remove blood safely and dispose of it securely. We secure the area against blood-borne pathogens, or diseases that live in the bloodstream, by putting bloody items in biohazard bags and following federal guidelines for biohazardous waste disposal at approved landfills or facilities.
– Crime scene cleanup: We remediate and decontaminate the crime scene, ridding it of fingerprint dust, drug debris, or tear gas while also sanitizing the area and removing threats of viruses and disease.
– Unattended death cleanup: When a person’s death is not detected for days or weeks, it is referred to as an unattended death, which can be very hard for a family to deal with. The decomposition of the body can lead to harmful bacteria spreading throughout the home, and we can eliminate it.
– Suicide cleanup: Suicide is one of the most traumatic incidents a family can endure, and our services can assist with handling the decomposition and odors that may occur. It’s critical that the task is not left to family members, who will only suffer more trauma.
We can perform these services in a home, office, or vehicle. Wherever you need trauma scene cleanup, our technicians can do it.
You can trust Bell Restoration for professional trauma cleanup services. We offer crime and trauma scene decontamination that will make the area as good as new when we leave.
Mold remediation requires mold removal specialists to perform techniques that promote source removal rather than relying on chemicals, paints, and coatings as a replacement,” “Understanding and managing air flow is also critical to the success of a mold remediation project. Working with a qualified Bell Restoration Tech can also help reduce the technician's liability and provide a final determination if the remediation was successful.
