Effect of Abnormal Water: ​Water indoors is an abnormal condition and can cause or contribute to a number of problems. The damage and health implications increase the longer materials remain wet. T​here are at least four progressive stages of indoor water damage.

1.​ W​ater migrates into areas not originally affected. Water spreads laterally into adjoining rooms, penetrates materials below and wicks up into porous materials above. It is best to evaluate all affected areas, not just areas with visible saturation.

2. Saturated materials begin swelling as they absorb moisture. In many situations, drying and restoration will restore them, and in others, the damage may be permanent. Rapid drying will help reduce the chance of permanent damage.

3. As water evaporates it causes an abnormal humidity condition. High humidity can damage some porous materials if allowed to continue. Humidity damage is most common when the indoor humidity exceeds 60% over time. It is best to reduce indoor humidity quickly to help prevent humidity damage.

4. After water intrusion, mold and bacterial spores can germinate and multiply. Microorganisms can cause mold damage and degrade indoor air quality. Some microorganisms produce antigens and allergens, which cause allergies while others can cause infections and toxic diseases.


Reducing Mildew Growth & Damage: ​I understand that several things that can be done to help reduce mold growth and damage to affected materials: (1) Water can be removed; (2) Antimicrobial agents can be applied to help inhibit the growth of mold and other bio-contaminants; (3) Rapid air movement can be introduced into areas and cavities to increase the rate of evaporation; and (4) Relative humidity (RH) indoors can be reduced. I further understand, that The Restoration Doctors, LLC, (1) Is not a mold remediation company; (2) Does not guarantee or warranty whatsoever that it can identify or remove mold; (3) That a company possessing expertise in mold remediation must be hired to help ensure proper identification and removal of mold and mildew; and (4) The Restoration Doctors, LLC services may only help, not prevent or resolve, any issues related to mold and mildew.

 

Authorization: ​I the Owner/Agent for the job site listed below, authorize The Restoration Doctors, LLC to enter my property, furnish materials, supply all equipment and perform all labor necessary to preserve and protect my property from further damage, and to perform all restoration procedures necessary to repair and restore the carpet, furniture, structure and other furnishings.

 

Prices: ​I understand that water damage is a progressive condition and that drying time varies depending on the types of materials, the quantity of water, degree of saturation, airflow volume and velocity, temperature, and the indoor and outdoor humidity. Therefore, I understand it is impractical to give an accurate quote for services before completion. I agree to pay the full price for the work The Restoration Doctors, LLC performs.

 

Stop Work-Hold Harmless: I​n the event that The Restoration Doctors, LLC is not allowed to perform its recommended procedures and/or drying equipment is removed prematurely, I agree to release and hold The Restoration Doctors, LLC harmless, and indemnify The Restoration Doctors, LLC and all of The Restoration Doctors, LLC subsidiaries and sub-contractors against any claims, actions, and liabilities that may result from such incomplete procedures.

 

Authorize Antimicrobials Agents: ​I understand that in the best judgment of The Restoration Doctors, LLC all wet materials should be treated with a commercial antimicrobial agent to help inhibit the growth of microorganisms during the drying process. I agree that all wet materials should be treated with the antimicrobial agent as part of the mitigation & restoration process. I understand that The Restoration Doctors, LLC services do not include mold inspections or mold removal, and I, therefore, agree to release, agree to indemnify and hold The Restoration Doctors, LLC harmless for any biological odors or growth, indoor air quality degradation and any mold-related personal injuries or other damages to health that may occur due to microbiological activity during and/or after the mitigation process.

 

Safety: I​ f dehumidifiers or air movers must be moved, they must be shut off and unplugged, as it may be hazardous to move these units while they are operating. Exposed tackless strips are a danger even when covered; I will take care when walking near a tackless strip. The floors may be slippery when wet; I will take extreme care if walking on or from wet flooring materials.

 

Equipment Responsibility: I​ understand that I am personally responsible for any damage, loss or theft of drying equipment while in my care and custody, and will take reasonable precautions to ensure that this drying equipment is not lost, stolen or damaged.
