Water covers the earth, we drink it, we need it to live. It is not however; to our benefit when it intrudes our buildings. Water causes severe structural and building damage. Water damage can also lead to health problems by inviting mold if left un-treated. Lastly, it can get very expensive to restore commercial and residential space the longer it is left un-treated.

Water can enter in different ways. Water from storms and weather as well as sewage backups can be very harmful, and require other specialty extraction methods. Water intrusion from faucet leaks, water heater, and some light rain roof leaks are not so severe as the water has not become completely contaminated yet. We want to attack these as fast as possible to avoid the worsening. 

Water cleanup mitigation is the practice of removing and drying (Water extraction) water from a space before it has the chance to cause further damage. If responded to quickly enough, water damage can usually be cleaned up and dried out quickly as to avoid further problems. Many times however; water mitigation and cleanup involves removing some items such as drywall, flooring, tile and furniture during the water extraction process. 

The water extraction process begins with specialty water extraction equipment including water extractors, dehumidifiers, directional air movers and negative air machines. These tools are necessary and must be used in conjunction with one another to successfully extract water and dry out the area. See pricing below.

Once the bulk of the water has been removed, the drying process begins. This step in the mitigation process involves several specialty drying fans, dehumidifiers, negative air machines and hepa-vacuums. These machines work in conjunction to speed up the drying process while removing potentially harmful particles from the air as well as pulling moisture from the air while heating the area to cause enough heat to dry the area. Yes, it can be a very difficult and time consuming process depending on the severity of the water damage and the size of the area involved in the restoration. 

In most cases, things that will need replaced during the water mitigation process are drywall, carpet, wood and wood substrates, tile, ceiling tiles and cabinets. Cinder walls, brick, glass, concrete and cement floors and other surfaces similar to these can usually be dried and disinfected with a solution.
