Does Your Home or Business Need Water Damage Remediation?
Water Damage Remediation redevelops an ecosystem that has been contaminated or interfered with. In this context, experts seek to minimize the impact of certain contaminants on the environment. The success of the remediation depends on the magnitude of the intervention and the legal requirement to ensure that life is sustained. Most of the time the efforts to remedy a contaminated ecosystem are limited to a budget and it is not possible to achieve a successful outcome. However, every case is different so that is why you should contact an expert before giving up hope.
Choosing the type of remediation
Although environmental remediation is relatively new, there are different methods of remediation. However, not all methods are effective and, therefore, adequate remediation for each case is different. The decision for Water Damage Remediation will be determined by the following conditions:
- Particular site conditions;
- Particular tailings (compaction, moisture, etc.);
- Particular local weather conditions;
- Availability of soil;
- Further use for the site;
- Efficiency (short or long term) methods;
- The cost (construction and maintenance);
- Status risk or imminent danger;
- Water table, earthquakes, overflow bucket; and
- Other associated impacts or benefits.
- Phytoremediation is a technology that uses native plant species that can survive in soils with high levels of metals, in order to physically and chemically stabilize the area. These techniques are still under investigation and it may take many years of observation to measure the results.
- Chemical remediation involves the application of chemicals in pools or dams and the like. The main objective is to control the pH and acidity levels produced mainly by the chemicals in the water.
- Physical-chemical remediation consists of the separation of solid/liquid or liquid/liquid effluents. The conventional method of removing ions (mainly heavy metals) is precipitation-sedimentation followed by thickening and/or filtration. The most common reagents are lime and caustic soda. Additionally, polymeric flocculants are used to accelerate solid/liquid separation.
Like all passive systems, you need to ensure that maintenance and care is done regularly to your home or business. This will go a long way in making sure that the system works well, allowing it to ward off animals, excess vegetation and stagnate water, all of which can block its flow and aerobic processes.
