Water Damage Mitigation vs Restoration

When an event occurs that causes the need for water damage services, you will hear a variety of terms being used.  Two of the most common terms that are often incorrectly used interchangeably are water damage mitigation and water damage restoration.  These are actually 2 separate parts of the process.  

Water Damage Mitigation

Water damage mitigation occurs soon after the initial water event.  It prevents additional harm from water and protects the residential or commercial property structure along with the contents. It involves extracting water, drying, cleaning and disinfecting the affected areas.

Water Damage Restoration

Water damage restoration typically takes place after the mitigation has been completed.  This step repairs and restores the water damage to the property and belongings. It concerns replacing damaged materials, eliminating mold, repairing roof damage.  The goal here to get the property and contents back to preloss condition.
