Water Mitigation vs. Water Damage Restoration
Both water mitigation and water restoration are essential when an interior has been flooded. Water mitigation comes first. This step is all about preventing further spread of damage and removing the excess water from the property. This may require using portable water extractors, air movers, and dehumidifiers. Demolition and debris removal may also be necessary. The water mitigation process involves more than just drying off surfaces, since water has a way of getting itself into the most inconvenient and hard-to-reach locations. Extracting all the moisture could take a few days or even longer, depending on the size and scope of the damage. Once everything has dried off and unsalvageable materials have been removed, the water damage restoration process can begin. This may include applying antimicrobial chemicals to prevent mold growth. Then, any part of the structure that was removed due to water damage can be reconstructed. This may range from simply replacing some carpet to rebuilding structural damage, depending on the level of water damage.
The Water Mitigation and Restoration Process
We understand that water mitigation needs to happen quickly, so we’ll respond in a timely manner and get you on our schedule ASAP! The first thing we’ll do is assess the extent of the damage in person. This allows us to contain and prevent further damage as well as plan the next steps going forward.
Next, if there is any standing water that needs to be extracted, we will remove that excess water using commercial-grade extractors. If the flood water contains contaminants such as sewage, this will influence restoration efforts. Then, we can figure out whether the carpet, drywall, and other building materials are salvageable or whether they need to be removed due to water damage and contaminants.
Depending on the extent of the damage, demolition may be necessary. For example, if drywall has become saturated with water, it might need to be removed down to the studs so that the wall cavities can dry out properly. Carpeting and carpet padding might need to be removed so that the subfloor can dry out more efficiently. In other cases, no demolition is necessary and you can go right to the next step.
With excess water removed and any unsalvageable building materials taken away, it’s time for the final dry out. This step ensures that there is no moisture left in the nooks and crannies. We will strategically bring in air movers and dehumidifiers to draw the excess moisture out of the air. This may take a few days, depending on how much water there was. We will use moisture testing to verify when the property is thoroughly dry.
Prevent Mold Growth
One of the main reasons you should act quickly is because mold can grow in as little as 24 hours in a moist environment. Extracting, demolishing, and drying out the property will keep mold from getting a foothold. For best results, you may want an antimicrobial application to keep the mold and mildew at bay.
With moisture levels under control, we can begin to reconstruct anything that has been demolished or removed during the water mitigation process. Depending on the damage, the restoration process could include electrical, plumbing, drywall, painting, flooring, etc. The goal of the water damage restoration process is to remove all traces of flood damage and return your property to a safe, fully-functioning state.

If possible, move all your prized possessions – photos, statues, paintings – to a dry location. Cushions and pillows along with any wet upholstery, should be removed. Lifting rugs from wet floors.
