Class C Damage: This type of damage has the fastest evaporation rate possible. In this case water may have come from above. This is where a tank may have burst overhead and begun cascading through the ceiling or part of a roof has collapsed and rain water has got in the home. Everything is saturated including the ceilings, flooring, walls and any furniture in the home in Duluth.
Class D Damage: This is the most devastating damage possible. It is very much similar to Class C Damage in that the whole room has been affected but the materials are consisting of a very low porosity. Materials such as brick, plaster, concrete, and stone have absorbed the water and saturation is at its fullest. Extremely low humidity is required to dry out the materials.
Most homes that have suffered from local flooding will be assessed by a water damage environmental officer who will decide the level of damage that has occurred in the home. Usually during times of flooding and excessive rainfall in flood plain areas the assessor will have to visit hundreds of properties and decide the level of damage on each one.
Often when some homes take out insurance to protect them in the event of water damage in Duluth, they find the level of damage is only covered to Class A or Class B so it’s always worth checking what level you are insuring against.
