Water Mitigation Defined
What is water mitigation? Water mitigation is the process of removing water to prevent further water damage after a flood. When floodwaters reach your home or property, it can damage everything it comes into contact with – walls, flooring, furniture, etc. Water mitigation companies not only extract the floodwaters from your home, they also dry the area, completely sanitize the area, and provide full restoration to the property’s pre-loss condition.
Floodwaters can be very dangerous. They often contain bacteria, parasites, insects, and sometimes even snakes. All of these things can be harmful to your family’s health and safety. For these reasons alone, it’s important to contact a water mitigation company as soon as a flooding event occurs.
Once you have contacted a water mitigation company, turn off water and electricity at their main outlets. If you’re not sure where these are in your home, stay away from the area until help has arrived. Electrocution is a major cause of fatalities during a flood. Keep yourself and your family safe.
If you’re able to remove the risk of electrocution, you can begin taking pictures of damage for your insurance company if you choose, but we still advise you stay out of the floodwaters. It’s just never a good idea to trudge through waters with unfamiliar substances in it. You can, however, make a list of items that you believe are damaged in the area.
Our water mitigation teams are experts in the full process of water mitigation from start to finish. We offer a free water mitigation estimate, extract all floodwaters with heavy-duty pumps, dry and clean the area, and then restore your property to its pre-loss condition with any restorations that need to be made. We will also work directly with your insurance company if applicable. Contact us today!

The team that was sent to our house was wonderful. Their experience and professionalism in our situation was outstanding. I was concerned about our children and they took every precaution (air purifier, microbial spray) to keep them safe. Not only did they have good work ethics, they were personable and caring as well.Angela and Scott S.
