Fort Wayne Water Mitigation and Water Damage Restoration Process

Your insurance company may have told you to contact a water mitigation or water damage restoration company near Fort Wayne, and you may be wondering what the difference is between mitigation and restoration. Although different processes, they are often both needed when you have water where it shouldn’t be, so let’s break it down.

Water mitigation refers to the process of preventing the spread of water damage. If not quickly addressed, unwanted water that has entered into your house or office can cause further damage to surrounding areas and promote mold growth. Here is what you can expect during mitigation:

  • Resolution of the cause of the water damage
  • Identification and documentation of affected areas
  • Water extraction and/or setting air movers and dehumidifiers
  • Inspection of the affected areas
  • Removal of drying equipment once recorded moisture readings confirm the areas are dry

Often, you need water damage restoration after mitigation. During the restoration process, damaged property is either repaired (restored) to new condition or replaced. Depending on the cause of the damage, new construction may be required. For example, damaged wallboards will need to be replaced. On the other hand, our contents restoration facility can save a lot of your items and includes stations for cleaning, sanitizing and deodorizing.
