Water Mitigation vs Water Damage Restoration

water mitigation vs water damage restoration

If your home or commercial space gets affected by water damage, water mitigation and water damage restoration should be executed as quickly and as soon as possible. Now, many people believe that these are two exactly the same thing but named differently. The fact is that these are two completely different services so saying that they are both the same isn’t accurate.

When we talk about water mitigation, we usually refer to services and actions that have the goal to prevent any additional damage that might be caused by flooding, leaking roof, leaking pipes and so on. This can be achieved (depending on the cause of course) by installing tarps over a damaged roof in order to prevent water leaking during heavy storms or mitigating moisture inside the walls if your washing machine overflows.

On the other hand, water damage restoration focuses on restoring the water struck area to its pre-damage or pre-loss condition once it has been damage by flooding, storms, sewage, leaking pipes etc. The restoration process is necessary, since water damage can hurt the structural integrity of your ceiling, flooring, walls and everything in between. The entire structural integrity of your home could be compromised so it’s important that the restoration process is done by a skilled and experienced service. The same applies to water mitigation.
