What is Water Mitigation?
What Is Water Mitigation? Water mitigation is the process of stopping the immediate flow of water, assessing the type of mitigation efforts needed, extracting the water, and drying out the property. Whenever there is a water leak of any kind, we only see what is happening on the surface. What is so important is what we don't see. Water is able “wick” up walls because of capillary action in porous materials. So, when you think your floor is the only thing affected, most likely your walls are too. Without state of the are equipment here at SERVPRO we can detect the slightest elevation in moisture and be able to moisture map the areas of the walls that have been affected. By being able detect leaks quickly and find the source of the leak this helps eliminate the amount of damage that can incur if not found quickly and can cause further damage. As a remediation and full restoration company we can mitigate the damage and make it like it never even happened.
