What is Water Mitigation?
If you have suffered a water loss to your home or business, you might find yourself in need of water mitigation services. However, if you have never experienced a water loss before, you might find yourself asking, 'What is water mitigation'?
FEMA defines mitigation as the process of reducing the loss of property due to the impact of a disaster. While SERVPRO of West Greenville County provides many types of mitigation services, water mitigation is the process of cleaning, sanitizing, drying, repairing, and restoring property to as close to pre loss condition as possible. Every job that our production team encounters is different and will require its own plan to complete the mitigation process.
When SERVPRO of West Greenville County is called out to a water loss, the first thing our production team will do is assess the situation. Then, depending on the extent of the damage or if there is standing water, our team will create a plan of action. If you choose to contact your insurance company, production will work closely to get everything approved to begin. The first goal is to dry out all affected contents and materials. This is done with extraction tools, dehumidifiers, and air movers to remove all humidity to eliminate a mold-friendly environment. After all materials are dry or removed, reconstruction may begin.
Water mitigation is an important process if you have suffered a water loss. Give us a call today at SERVPRO of West Greenville County. (864)-292-8570.
