When your home gets flooded, it is hard to know what to do next. Knowing the difference between water mitigation and water restoration can help you choose the right company to get the help you need. Majority of professional companies will preform both water mitigation and water restoration with their service to get your home back to normal.
What is the difference between water mitigation and water restoration?
So what is water mitigation? Water mitigation will always be preformed before water restoration. The main purpose of water mitigation is preventing further damage. The longer your loss is wet the higher the chance for microbial growth. Technicians go in and remove everything damaged by the water and will use water extractors and drying equipment to get it to the dry standard needed to restore the space. Water mitigation is not meant to restore what has already been damaged but is meant to ensure further damage does not occur.
Let’s talk about water restoration. The water restoration process is to help home owners get back to what they are used to. Technicians assess the space for any mold damage or missed water damage; once clear they focus on replacing walls, floors, and paint. The focus of restoration is getting back to pre-loss conditions.
Both water mitigation and water restoration are essential for when a water loss occurs. No matter what the water source is or how large the water leak has affected your home, a restoration company can help.
