Water Damage Classification
Water Damage Classification in Jacksonville, Gainesville, Ocala, and Lake City, FL
In addition to strong rains and storms, there are a few other scenarios that can cause indoor flooding. Bathtub overflow, backed-up toilets, and leaking pipes can create a flood. Unlike natural disasters, these events can typically be easily resolved. We perform initial repairs and an area cleanup to ensure the damage is confined to the affected space. Although this process may not always be challenging, water damage restoration is still a job best left to the professionals.
The professionals at Dreyer’s DKI are trained to effectively repair and remove the damage caused by water. Not all flooding scenarios are the same, and there is a proper way to handle each situation. Faced with this problem, the first thing we will do is determine what class of water damage we are facing. Your situation may fall into one of these four classifications:
This scenario has the least volume of water as well as the lowest rate of absorption and evaporation. The damage may only affect one room or area, or only low-lying items that are made from porous materials (e.g. plywood, structural wood, concrete, etc.) The carpet or flooring in the room experiences little to no wetness, and absorbent items have taken very little moisture.
Class 2 is similar to class 1, but this time, even your carpets and cushions are affected. The water level must at least rise between 12 to 24 inches, and there is moisture remaining in the structural materials.
For a situation to fall under class 3, water must have flooded the entire area. The cause of the flooding may have come from overhead. Everything in the area, from the ceiling to the floor, is saturated.
Materials with lower permeability levels must be dried in a specific manner to preserve their form. Items such as hardwood and plaster take a longer time to dry. Putting them through a special drying process will keep them from deteriorating and allow them to dry faster.
- Burst pipe
- Appliance overflow
- Bathroom overflow and back-ups
- Secondary damage (e.g. mold and mildew, wood rotting, etc.)
Jason, with Dryer's Carpet Care, did an amazing job today cleaning my carpets. Having a little, young dog means accidents happen, and I was thrilled that the spots all came up. Thank you Jason!
Dryer's Carpet did our office last week, including cleaning the tile grout in our bathrooms and I can't begin to describe the amazing job they did! They were careful with our furniture and our office and delivered an outstanding job!
The technician was very positive, careful of other furnishings and receptive to requests. We’ve used them for furniture, carpets and rugs.
Exceptional work and were able to come to our house on short notice (next day). Would highly recommend.
What a professional group!! Highly recommend!! Everything is so nice, smells great!!
Best carpet cleaning company hands down! Very professional and affordable! Our carpets looks look AMAZING!!
So far Derek and Garrison and the whole Dreyers crew have been very professional and hard working in the early stages of cleaning up our home and business after hurricane Idalia.
I've been dealing with Miles and Garrison on a leak issue and they've been super helpful and professional. Miles assessed the problem right away and Garrison has made sure to tell us what's happening through every step. They took the stress out of a stressful situation!
Showed up on time. Did a great job. Would definitely hire them again
Jason did a great job of cleaning the wall-to-wall carpet in our house. He was very nice and efficient and our carpet looks terrific.
I have been using Dreyrs over the years for my house and business. Always professional and pleasant to work with. Jason and his partner were awesome! My carpets looks amazing! Thank you!
Allen did a really great job of cleaning our carpets. We showed him some areas where our dog left stains, and he spent extra time to clean thoroughly.
Excellent service from local family owned business, which I love. Very friendly when I made my appointment. I got a return call right away after an instant text message from the company. I liked that touch. Alan was prompt, friendly and super professional. My sofa and living room look great. Emily was so sweet on the phone explaining the company and pricing. We’re new to the area so I am happy t...
Recently had Alan, from Dryer's clean my sectional & was beyond thrilled with his prompt arrival, friendliness, and thorough professional cleaning. Wow! Had debated whether or not to ditch the old beast and buy a new one, but Alan's ability to painstakingly work to get the sofa so clean & fresh= I'll save $ and keep my sofa- Thank you Alan for making this old woman smile when looking at her clean ...
Brought Dreyer's in to clean the carpet of a recently purchased multi-floor (with carpeted stairs) condo. Dreyer's was there on-time and performed an excellent job. Allen was pleasant and professional. We had been concerned that some areas of the carpet would require replacement, but everything now looks and smells great. The price was very reasonable and there were no "surprise" charges during or...
Incredible, easy, and fast service from start to finish. Allen and Jason did did an amazing job. I would highly recommend using this company.
This was the third time that Dreyer’s cleaned our very special old wool rug. We also have the special coating to keep the stains down. The colors and pile are so pretty after it’s clean. Thank you team!
Allen was very professional. He got set up quickly but took his time cleaning our carpet. He did a great job and represented his company admirably.
timely, courteous, thorough service Allen delivered exceptional service.

Dreyers did an excellent job. Will be using them again in 6 months. The guys really took care.

House smells great and carpet looks superb. Amazing what a professional cleaning company can do! I definitely will use them again. The carpet techs...
