Once you have taken care of yourselves, the next step is to turn off the water to your property if you can do so in a safe manner. This will help prevent further damage to your property. Next, you should contact your insurance company to let them know what has happened and to start the claims process.

Finally, call us, Revive Water Damage Restoration, so we can begin restoring your property as soon as possible. We have a team of experienced professionals who will work diligently to get your life back to normal.

There are three categories of water damage:

  1. Clean Water
  2. Grey Water
  3. Black Water.


Clean water damage is caused by a clean, potable source of water, such as a broken water pipe or melted ice. This type of damage is the least serious and generally causes the least amount of damage. The reason for this is that the water is generally not contaminated. The drying and cleaning process is quite simple.


Grey water is slightly more serious than clean water and is caused by sources such as dishwasher or washing machine overflows, toilet overflow with urine only, or sump pump failures. This type of damage can cause sickness if ingested. Grey water needs to be taken care of ASAP!


Black water is the most serious type of water damage and is caused by events such as sewage backups, floods from rivers or streams, or ground surface flooding. This type of water contains harmful bacteria and other contaminants that can cause serious illness or death if ingested. Black water needs to be cleaned up by a professional as soon as possible!

The length of time it takes for water damage to dry out depends on the extent of the damage. For minor damage, it can take as little as two days. However, for more extensive damage, it can take 7 to 10 days or even longer if the water damage has taken place in areas with no natural light or airflow.


A few factors that will affect the drying time include the type of material that is wet (e.g., carpet, drywall, wood), the evaporation rate, and the humidity and temperature levels in the room. In general, though, you can expect water damage to take at least five days to dry out completely.

Yes. The longer the water stays without being extracted, the more damage will be caused to the property. This is because water can cause metal to corrode, wood and fabrics to rot, and mold growth is almost guaranteed if the situation is not rectified. Not only that, but if left unchecked, water can eventually cause structural damage to a building or home.


It’s important to address any signs of water damage as soon as possible to prevent it from getting worse. If you’re not sure what to do, it’s best to consult with a professional such as our company who can help assess the situation and recommend the best course of action.

There’s no certain answer to this question since it depends on several factors, but generally speaking, any water leak carries the risk of mold growth. If you have water damage, it’s important to dry the area out as quickly as possible and repair any leaks to prevent mold from worsening the problem. In some cases, you may need to remove wet materials like carpeting or insulation that can’t be salvaged to prevent further mold growth. Revive Water Damage Restoration is a qualified company that will be able to assess the situation and take the necessary steps to remediate the mold problem.

Yes, water damage can be fixed in a house, but it depends on the extent of the damage. If the flooring, drywall, and insulation are all wet and need to be replaced, then the repair costs will be significantly higher than sometimes small. Such as an overflowed toilet that got into the carpet but the water was turned off quite fast.


However, in both circumstances. If only the flooring is wet and can be dried out, then the repair costs will be much lower.


It’s essential to address any water damage as soon as possible because it can lead to more serious problems down the road, like mold growth. So if you are in the middle of a water damage emergency and are safe call us ASAP. Or if there is no direct emergency but you have noticed signs of water damage in your home, don’t wait – still call us, a professional water damage restoration company, immediately.

If water gets into your walls, it can cause significant damage.


This includes mold and mildew growth, wood rot, and structural damage to name a few points. If you notice any of these things, it’s important to call a professional right away.


Water can enter your walls in many ways, including through leaks in the roof, windows, or pipes. It can also come from excessive moisture in the air, condensation, or flooding. Whatever the source, getting rid of the water as soon as possible is key to preventing further damage.

Drywall is made of gypsum, which is a pretty sturdy material. However, if it’s exposed to water for too long, it can start to break down and become ruined. So yes, drywall can be ruined if it gets wet. If the water exposure is prolonged, the drywall will start to swell and eventually disintegrate. In addition, mold and mildew can grow on wet drywall, so it’s important to act quickly if your drywall does get wet.


If you think your drywall may have been exposed to water, it’s important to act quickly and have a professional inspect it. If the damage is caught early enough, it can be saved and further damage can be prevented. If action is not taken quickly enough then odds are that the drywall will need to be removed and replaced, adding to the costs of the restoration process.

It depends on several factors, including the size of the affected area, the extent of the damage, the type of materials involved, and the type of water damage (grade one, two, or three).

Generally speaking, you can expect to pay anywhere from $3 on the low end to $10 per square foot for water damage repair. However, it’s important to keep in mind that every situation is unique and therefore prices will vary depending on the specific circumstances.

To provide some examples:

  • On average, a leaky pipe repair in Florida can cost anywhere from $200 to $400. This may cost more based on how much material can be salvaged without replacement.
  • Up to 12 inches of water in one room has got into the walls. The water must be extracted. Moisture needs to be dried out from the carpeting, floors, and any nearby appliances and fixtures. The area needs to be tested for mold spores. This would start at $2,000.
  • A grey water overflow of a toilet that’s got into the hardwood floors that need to be replaced as they can’t be salvaged might cost $5,000+ to restore even for a small area.

It also depends on what class of water damage has taken place. For example, a class four situation could be long-standing water such as from fluvial flood (aka a river overflow flood). This type of flooding can cause structural damage. This could cost $20,000 to $100,000 to fix. If you have any questions or would like a more accurate estimate, it’s best to consult with us. We can assess the damage and provide you with a more customized quote.

Water damage can affect a building on many levels, including the physical structure, the furnishings and fixtures within, and even the occupants’ health.

Structural damage may be caused by the water itself or by subsequent mold growth.


Furnishings and fixtures can become damaged or destroyed by water, and even mildew and mold can cause respiratory problems in building occupants. This is just a small list of what water can do. Water damage can render a property a health hazard and uninhabitable. A major water damage problem can ruin the entire property. If you have water damage call us today before the problem escalates!
