NHC 247the NHC Advantage Service 24/7

Water DamageAt NHC we have IICRC certified technicians that have been trained to approach each loss with the mindset to mitigate, control humidity and complete all required work efficiently.

 

This allows us to cost effectively minimize the total impact of the water loss and ensure the level of service your client receives is to the highest standards, your own.

 

Regardless of the loss size, We assign our trained professionals to the task required and provide the results you need!

 

Multiple Magnitude of Drying

 

Weather you require 200 CFM or 100,000 CFM to dry a loss, we will respond with the right equipment and knowledge needed to get the job done.


We can respond with multiple crews or equipment supervision for large loss, we base our solutions on your specific needs and generate a plan of action to increase your capacity for equipment and crews when you most need it.

  

 

We provide detailed moisture map sheets for atmospheric conditions and surface drying progress.

Speciality Drying

 

Speciality DryingWe offer speciality drying such as injecti dry systems and heat drying through desiccant use, along with large loss commercial, Industrial and residential drying.

 

We have completed such projects as gymnasium floor drying, 

20 floor apartment building drying to hundreds of homes during a catastrophe, to name a few.

We use calculations to determine equipment requirements that correspond to the S-500 to ensure the right amount is installed and justified to dry properly and efficiently.

 

 

 

 

BEST OF ALL,

we introduce ourselves as "your staff"

 

We introduce ourselves as "your staff" to your clients.
There is no need to disclose that you are sending a subcontractor!
You are simply sending “your” mitigation team to take care of your client’s needs.

 

You can rest assured that once we have completed mitigation, 
your company will receive the gratitude it deserves for outstanding work done! 

 

When it comes to a water loss,
trust the professionals at NHC to increase your capacity & abilities.

 

Information you may find helpful


There are 3 categories of water damage that determine how a loss is processed:
  1. (Clean Water) A liquid from a clean and sanitary source.

  2. (Grey Water) A liquid described as having a level of contaminates that may cause illness or discomfort if ingested.

  3. (Black Water) Highest level of contamination and is grossly unsanitary. It could cause severe illness or death if ingested. Most commonly referred to as a sewer backup.
 
There are also 4 Classes of destruction that determine the significance of the loss and type of drying procedure required :
  1. Easiest to deal with, slow and low evaporation rate. Only part of a room or area was affected, there is little or no wet carpet, and the moisture has only affected materials with a low permeance rate, such as plywood or concrete.

  2. With a fast evaporation rate, this level affects an entire room, carpeting, or cushioning, the wetness has wicked up the walls at least 12”, and there is moisture remaining in structural materials.
     
  3. This class has the fastest evaporation rate, and ceilings, walls, insulation, carpet and sub-floors are all saturated. The liquid may have come from overhead.
     
  4. This class is labeled as specialty drying situations, which means there has been enough liquid and time to saturate materials with very low permeance, such as hardwood, brick, or stone.

IceFrozen water (Ice) is 9% lighter than water,
which is why ice floats on water.

Water alone does not conduct electricity very well,
impurities found in water is what conducts electricity the most.

 

Additionnal Information


Typical dry time for a loss:

This depends on many factors. What type of water category, what class, how large of an area and what materials are subjected to the water. The category will determine if we are required to remove materials or if they can be dried in place. Once mitigation services have started, you can expect at a minimum, 2-5 days for materials to reach a dry standard.Some losses can require +/- 30 days to dry dense materials such as concrete, large structures with multiple layers or speciality rooms such as static and dust free areas.

 

Typical process for flood control (Mitigation):

Contact NHC to provide you with 24/7 emergency service. We respond to your call and gather the basic information needed to prepare our crews for departure. Crew arrives at your location and assesses damages and scope of work required. Start with water extraction. Contents processing to determine if items are damaged or salvageable. List damaged contents and add to a Non-Salvage Item list that is associated with photos. Review this list with the property owner or manager. In some cases, contents will have to be packed and moved to other locations within the home or off site to our climate controlled warehouse for storage until the remediation work has been completed and the property is restored to it’s pre loss condition.

 

Start with removal of affected materials, if required, or set drying equipment to start the drying process. Complete a detailed surface moisture map along with atmospheric conditions. It may take several days to complete the contents processing and material removal depending on the amount of damage. Structural drying through the use of dehumidification and air movement. Monitoring of equipment. Pick up equipment once all areas have been verified to be dry. For further information, please visit www.iicrc.org.
