Sanitary Categorization in Gainesville, Jacksonville, Ocala & Lake City, FL
When we provide water damage restoration, we are also working to prevent secondary mold and structural damage to your home. Our clean-up plan is customized based on the extent and type of water damage present.
The IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification) sets the standards for the cleaning industry, as well as for water damage restoration training. There are different levels involved when dealing with water damage.
These different categories can be easily identified. The next time you call your local restoration company, it will be much easier to guide your technician in forming the perfect water damage restoration plan for your home.
Category 1 means that the water damage was caused by clean water. Clean water comes from a sanitary source, such as a drinking fountain, faucet, or bathtub. Category 1 can immediately turn into category 2 or 3 if given enough time.
This is the easiest restoration level with a slow evaporation rate. With category 1 water, only part of the room is affected, and the area does not include permeable materials. This can be easily cleaned up and there are no health hazards involved.
An example of category 2 water is the overflow coming from a malfunctioning dishwasher or washing machine. Category 2 water has been used to clean something, including to clean food, dirt, and bodily fluids in general.
This level is a little more challenging because we look past the origin of the water and check out other factors. The air circulation inside the room, the indoor temperature of the home, and the overall cleanliness can help determine how much disinfectant is needed. The evaporation rate is quicker, so it can affect your walls or floors more easily. Beware of unmanaged moisture when dealing with this level, as it can lead to mold growth.
This is a backup or overflow from toilets, sewers, and even septic systems. This kind of water can contain human or animal waste, also known as sewage. Black water carries diseases, viruses, and bacteria. If not cleaned quickly, it can harm your health. Water damage of this level requires the removal of porous materials, such as carpet, drywall, cushions, etc. because anything that black water has touched could endanger your health.
This kind of water damage requires hot water extraction and disinfectant. In most cases, items affected by black water will need to be repaired or thrown out. Category 3 has the fastest evaporation rate and almost every part of your home can absorb black water.
If you have stagnant water in your home, never let it stay for too long. If left alone, there is a high chance that it can breed mold that causes respiratory problems. Dreyer’s DKI will use the most advanced tools and techniques to erase all traces of water damage, so that the extraction and drying process can begin.
By making our services quick and effective, we minimize water cleanup costs and repairs, increasing your chances of reusing your carpet or other belongings before they sustain irreparable water damage.
Our diverse restoration services also include floor cleaning, fire damage restoration, storm damage restoration and water damage restoration.
We provide service in the surrounding areas of Gainesville, Ocala and Lake City, Florida.

First time using them! The technician's name was Kyle who came out very pleasant and informative! Kyle worked very hard on getting stains out of the arm of my recliners! Will definitely use this company again! My recliners look great! Kyle also left me a small bottle of spot remover!
Would like to give a shout out to Kyle with Dreyer's Carpet Care. Not only does he do a fantastic job, he is super sweet and nice and is someone you could talk to all day. Dreyer's company is also very professional. They are responsive, send reminder dates, and are on time. We will use them every time for our carpet cleaning needs.
I have used Dryers for years. Kyle came yesterday with a co-associate. He was kind, polite and went above and beyond to clean my carpets. Very please with their service. Thank you. Joann
Very pleased and would recommend them
This is the second time I have used Dreyers. Both times I have been very happy. Joe came both times and did an excellent job.
Dreyers has cleaned my tile floors and furniture for years. They are always prompt and thorough and do a great job. Recently I had to use their water damage repair service as well. Amazing: came out late at night, returned daily and restored my kitchen to use. They are wonderful and reliable. The heroes of cleaning service in Gainesville.
I had a mold scare in my laundry room. Something was oozing out of the wall. Called Dreyer's and Jonathan Dryer, the owner, arrived in less than two hours for a free inspection. He tested the wall. No moisture/no leaks. He thought a cleaning product bottle on the shelf above must have leaked. All product bottles appeared intact. After Jonathan left, I started cleaning the wall and the shelf above....
Everything was done with perfection and promptly. :)

Joe and Dreyer's Carpet Care are outstanding. I wouldn't think of using anyone else for our business!
Just a had a demolition, mold remediation, and clean-up completed by Derek, who previously started the work with Micah. Want to thank them both for their professionalism. Two words for these gentlemen— hardworking and respectful to say the least. Much appreciated!
Did great job Tile looks great as do carpets
This is a real local company jewel. The service was prompt, courteous and good value - I will certainly recommend them and use their services again.
A+++ service, highly recommend. We’ve been using Dreyer’s for over 20 years for our carpet and upholstery cleaning. You can’t find a better company for superb cleaning and excellent customer service. Last week, Joe did our upholstery cleaning and Kyle, our carpets. I called both of them “miracle workers” for getting up stains I didn’t think ever could be, although they were careful to ...
I have a forty year old oriental woolen carpet. Carpet over the years of abuse and not cleaning had many spots, large stains and color changes; It looked so bad that I was thinking to just trash it. I then called Dreyer’s Carpet Care. They came picked up the carpet and cleaned the carpet not once but TWICE, these folks take their work very professionally. Carpet looks quite clean and can be used...
I would like to say thank you to Dreyer's for a sending Kyle to provide the service that we wanted, it has been a long time since we had a young man the takes pride in there work thank you Kyle it was a honer to meet and talk with you, and not forget the sweet lady's on the phone as well, I hope you had a great time off, we will be calling you again!!!
Within 15 minutes of making the initial call to Dreyer’s, I had help enroute to my home to assess the damage. All the Dreyer’s staff I encountered were super helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend their services!
Very good work. Gave me info that cost the leek. Replace everything that was defective. Pleasant and very clean. I will recommend.
We had Dreyers clean our sectional couch, as well as 3 rooms of carpeting, and 2 area rugs. We are very pleased with their work. Kyle came and was very courteous and hard working. He did a great job cleaning everything! We will call Dreyers again when we need our carper/furniture cleaned.
DKI has been a great support for my family during a difficult time. Brad was very knowledgeable! Everyone that came to our home made sure to communicate with us what to expect. They gave recommendations and help set up contractors for quotes. They truly did the work for us.
They were very prompt, professional, and easy to work with. They were very kind and even stayed extra to make sure they would not trip the breaker. They were able to prevent mold from growing in my walls after our hot water heater began leaking.
The supervisor (Kyle Northdyke) and technicians (Dekovan "Junior" London and Ryan Kirkland) arrived to my house within 30 minutes of receiving my call on a Sunday evening. They have been excellent professionals assessing the damage and solving the issues of my flooded floors.
Joe did an amazing job again! The carpets were terrible but they look awesome now. Thank you for always being professional and diligent!
They arrived right on time and were very professional. We have had to have carpet restretched in both bedrooms after the cleaning. Each time they clean it gets worse, so we will need to redo it again. I am not sure if this is a carpet problem or cleansing issue.
Following a leak at my house, I used Dreyer's DKI for water mitigation and they were an amazing help - each employee I met was professional, kind, and offered advice. I especially appreciated their patience in working with me through an insurance claim that ended up covering none of the damage to my home. I highly recommend Dreyer's and will absolutely use them again if needed.
Dreyer’s DKI was there when we lost everything to Hurricane Ian’s devastating flooding to our home. They worked diligently to remove everything in our home down to the studs, cleaned and dried the entire home. They also helped neighbors and were very caring and compassionate. We would highly recommend them and appreciate everything they did for us.
