What is that Smell?

Cellulosic or microbial growth. Sheet rock if left too long and or carpet & pad can develop an odor that will off gas with the microbial growth that has developed.

    Today at BNI we heard from Mark Saiger, owner of Saiger's Steam Clean. Today Mark brought in a bunch of his cleaning tools/machines, old to new, to show us how the technology in the industry has changed over the years. At Saiger's they always use the most up to date technology and are always thinking about ways to better the industry and products they use. I have never seen a business owner more passionate about his business and the work he does.
    Mark has been a great addition to our BNI group, he brings energy and spark

Category I Water Damage

Caused by fresh water leak from areas such as sink overflows and interior pipe breaks & leaks.  Most items in a home can be saved if the drying process begins quickly.

"My portable air conditioner had been leaking on my carpeting for days. When I called, Mark Saiger came to my house immediately. His high-tech FLIR camera showed us the water leakage in the wall!
Excellent, excellent customer service!"

Category II Water Damage

Typically known as Grey Water which can come from a toilet overflow or disposal water trap area.  Fresh water leaks can also become grey water as it travels through certain areas gathering debris and contaminants, or if allowed to remain in a building without remediation.  Grey Water can also contain certain microbial and bacterial growths.  Items contaminated might need specialized cleaning, and treatments.  Some items contaminated by grey water might also need to be removed versus cleaning.

Category III Water Damage

Probably the worst of contaminated waters.   This water damage is typically associated with sewer backups, severe flooding or water that has been in a building without quick remediation.  Many items in this type of situation will need to be removed and replaced.  There is typically severe microbial growth associated with this type of water loss.  Special cleaning and drying techniques will be needed.
