After experiencing water damage, you might find yourself frantically searching for terms like “water extraction” and “water mitigation,” trying to figure out which service you need and how the process works.

First and foremost, contact us immediately when water damage occurs! We can assess the situation and recommend the appropriate services. Typically, you’ll need both water extraction and water mitigation. Water extraction is the first step, involving the removal of water from your home. Following this, water mitigation includes removing water-damaged materials and performing necessary repairs.

Water Extraction

Water extraction is crucial for quickly reducing the water level in your home, which helps prevent mold and mildew growth. Depending on your situation, the process may include:

  • Stopping the source of the water
  • Draining or pumping standing water out of your home
  • Removing hidden water (inside walls and subflooring)
  • Thoroughly drying the area
  • Dehumidifying the affected area or the entire house

There can be safety concerns during water extraction. If the water contains sewage, special equipment is needed to mitigate the risk of infectious disease. Additionally, water contact with electrical sockets poses an electrocution hazard. Always call us before entering a flooded area.

Water Mitigation

Once water extraction is complete, water mitigation involves removing unsalvageable materials from your home. This may include furniture, subflooring, or drywall. After removal, we thoroughly clean and sanitize the area.

Comprehensive Cleanup

Water damage cleanup may seem daunting, but we handle it routinely. Contact us as soon as possible after the incident to maximize the chances of saving your property. We will guide you through the process, assist with your homeowners insurance claim, and work to restore your home to its original state as quickly as possible.
