Differences Between Water Mitigation and Water Damage Restoration

What Is Water Damage Mitigation? Benefits & Process

What Is Water Mitigation?

Water mitigation is the process of addressing, containing, and preventing further loss from water damage. The goal is to extract as much water as possible before attempting to restore the property to its pre-loss condition. It would be nearly impossible to restore a property without mitigating water damage first.

What Is Water Damage Restoration?

Water damage restoration is the process of restoring a property to its pre-loss condition, and typically follows water mitigation efforts. This may involve taking out drywall, carpeting, and other materials that were significantly damaged.

The Water Damage Mitigation Process


1. Stop the Water Flow

The first step to mitigating and cleaning water damage is to cut off the water source. To prevent additional damage in your home, the team at our water mitigation company will stop the water by shutting off a faucet, deactivating an appliance, or adjusting the main water valve on your property. Of course, if the water source is weather-related, it will likely have stopped by the time our team arrives. Regardless of the water source, our team will work diligently to stop the flow of water.

2. Determine Mitigation Requirements

Flood waters are classified into three categories by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC). By determining the category, our team can better prepare your property for mitigation and keep all occupants safe.

Category 1

Refers to “clean water” which is typically from a faucet, broken water line, or overflowed tub.

Category 2

Is classified as “gray water” which may contain harmful chemicals or debris.

Category 3

Is “black water” which contains raw sewage or river water.

3. Extract Water & Dry Out

With the water flow cut off and the mitigation requirements determined, our team will start the water mitigation process and will extract excess water in your home or business. We will help ensure any standing water on the property or within the property is gone before beginning the restoration process.
