How to Choose the Best Water Mitigation Company for Your Needs

How to Choose the Best Water Mitigation Company for Your Needs

When it comes to dealing with water damage in your home, it’s important to get someone to come out and handle it immediately. The process of water mitigation removes all of that unwanted water from your home. It also ensures that further damage doesn’t occur. Today, we’re going to take a look at the process of water mitigation and how you can choose the right water mitigation company to handle your needs.

Why Water Mitigation?

Simply put, if you experience a flood or some kind of other water damage, the process of water mitigation will clean the area to make sure that mold doesn’t grow. This process also ensures that no further water damage occurs by sealing up the problem areas.

This is important for two reasons. The first is making sure your home is not only clean but sanitized. This means removing anything and everything that could potentially lead to the growth and spread of mold in your home. Mold growth, when it’s not addressed, can lead to structural damage to your home, as well as medical issues for you and your loved ones.

The second is that by sealing up any problem areas in your home that can cause further water damage, you’re preventing any of them from getting any worse. This means less damage to your home down the line and fewer repair bills you have to worry about in the future. 

What Should I Be Looking for in a Water Mitigation Company?

The most reputable water mitigation companies are going to not only use industry-standard cleaners and commercial-grade equipment to clean your home but will also follow a specific process to mitigate the water from your home. That process is as follows:

Stopping the Source

This usually means turning off the water if a leak has sprung. If it’s a basement flood from heavy rain, then this process is usually skipped for the next step.

Removing All Excess Water

This is done by using a pump or shop vac to ensure that all water is removed from the area. This makes it easier to clean and repair later.

Removing All Water-Damaged Items 

This means taking out anything like furniture, cardboard boxes, and even the carpet. This prevents mold from growing and spreading while making it easier to clean.

Cleaning the Area

Industrial-grade cleaners are used to kill any mold spores that may have formed since the damage occurred. This will prevent the further growth and spread of mold in your home.

Remove Any Remaining Moisture

To do this, a dehumidifier is used to suck out any remaining moisture in the area. This not only makes it easier to dry but also kills off any remaining mold spores that were not killed by the cleaner.
