Why Your Water Damage Company Must Have IICRC Certified Technicians

When a recovery team knocks on your door after water damage occurs, you want to know a thing or two about the people you’re letting into your home to restore a normal, healthy and safe indoor environment.

What Can Go Wrong? (A Lot!)

Water damage recovery and mold remediation incorporates critical standardized techniques and technology. A flooded or contaminated home isn’t the place for on-the-job training of totally unskilled, inexperienced workers. Expensive damage can be made even more costly when improper or makeshift methods are utilized. Long-term consequences like mold and structural damage can manifest months after an unqualified recovery workforce leaves behind a job not well done.

Certified and Qualified

Rytech employs IICRC Certified technicians so you know immediately they’ve invested time and expense to ensure that workers are fully trained and meet industry criteria for knowledge and hands-on skills. The IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) is the industry organization that sets standards for water damage recovery, mold remediation and other residential and commercial services. The IICRC literally wrote the book on water damage — published IICRC standards are now the accepted guidelines for training in recovery and remediation techniques, as well as the basis for ongoing research.

Rytech Inc. is an IICRC-certified company that employs technicians trained and certified to IICRC standards.

Things to Check Outside to Avoid Water Damage Inside

One of the best ways to avoid water damage in the home is to pay attention to what’s going on outside the house. Let’s face it, water that stays outdoors presents little potential for indoor water damage. However, water has insidious ways of entering a home—beyond obvious causes like an inundating flash flood. To avoid water damage in your home, it’s often necessary to backtrack the indoor effect to an outdoor cause. Here are a few ways outside water gets in:

  • Clogged gutters - Make sure your gutters are unobstructed by fallen leaves or other debris.
  • Ground Water Seepage - A high natural water table exerts hydrostatic pressure on the underside of the foundation as well as basement walls. Ground water can permeate directly through the concrete slab of the house or seep in through cracks in basement walls. The local water table may rise and fall with varying factors such as rainfall so infiltration may be intermittent. Installing a sump pump in your basement is good year-round prevention against ground water damage.

Rytech of North Metro Indy is a specialist in water and mold removal.  If you have a damp, musty odor in your home or business and suspect mold growth, call the professionals at Rytech.  We will provide a free assessment and work with you to remediate any issues.

How to Prevent Broken Water Pipes

Take a few steps to prevent broken water pipes and reduce your chances of expensive and mold contamination, too. The most common cause of catastrophic water inundation is not outdoor flooding, it actually originates indoors with your own plumbing. A ruptured residential water supply line can release up to 50 gallons per minute. How many minutes will elapse before you are able to turn off water to the entire house at the? Worst case scenario: Suppose you’re out of town for a few days when it happens?

Compared to all other alternatives, anything you can do now to prevent broken water pipes is clearly the preferred course.

Get Your Pressure Checked by a Plumber

Water pressure in the main municipal water line is too high for residential plumbing. It’s typically reduced by a regulator valve located at your water meter or where the water supply line enters your house. If the regulator’s defective or improperly adjusted, indoor water pressure may be excessive and cause a ruptured pipe. In most cases, household water pressure should not exceed 65 p.s.i.

Don’t Put up with Leaks

Pinhole leaks, dribbles or seepage from indoor water supply lines, no matter how minor, should never be dismissed as “normal.” In most cases, the leakage you can actually see is only the external indication of major corrosion inside that may cause a total rupture — or a weakening joint that may blow out any day now. Visually inspect all the water supply lines for any signs of dripping or seepage, past or present, and call a plumber now if you see any.

Sewage Or Mold Found in Your Crawl Space?

October was a busy month for Rytech Indianapolis! Lots of Hoosiers dealing with surprise sewage and mold issues in their crawl space. Most of us don’t spend much time there, so issues often go undetected until a home inspection is required.

This area of the home is usually “unconditioned space”. (Because the climate isn’t controlled by the HVAC system.) Water or sewage leaks raise the humidly, and create the perfect environment for mold.  (We suggest you get a home inspection report before purchasing a new property. Even if your insurance company doesn’t require one.)

If the crawl space is properly ventilated, most moisture is naturally resolved. So no problems arise. If sewage leaks from a broken pipe, or water seeps through the foundation walls, even the well-ventilated crawl space will need to be properly treated to prevent mold damage.

These photos are from two of our recent job sites. The problem was discovered by a home inspector. This is common, because it can take some time for these issues to cause symptoms in the main area of the home.

Water And Mold Damage From Your HVAC System?

Summer heat hasn’t skipped Indiana this year. We’ve been busy helping Hoosiers deal with a little-known cause of water damage and mold, water leaks from their HVAC system. Those who live in Indy, know that the humidity can be unbearable. Few realize that their HVAC system can pull up to 20 gallons of moisture from the air inside their home on a humid day.

These photos are from two job sites, where the HVAC system had been leaking for some time before the homeowner realized it was happening. This is common, given that most of our systems are crammed in spaces we rarely use every day.  Sometimes, we aren’t aware of the problem until there are signs of water damage to adjacent drywall or flooring materials.
