Immediate action is required!
Following any type of water penetration, water damage restoration must be completed as promptly and efficiently as feasible. Simply put, water mitigation is the process of limiting the potential damage caused by water following a leak or a flood to decrease the impact of a disaster.
The urgency of action stems from the fact that standing water can become more toxic the longer it is left untreated. The risk of microbial development and damage to contents grows as water lingers in place. As a result, water mitigation is an essential component of any water damage recovery strategy.
