By implementing proven strategies, we stabilize properties, ensure occupant safety, and prevent further destruction of vulnerable building materials and belongings.

Defining Water Mitigation

To fully grasp the process of transforming your damaged property into a fully restored one, viewing it as a continuous journey is helpful. While the different phases blend, several interventions specifically fall under water mitigation. These interventions effectively prevent homes and commercial buildings in Johns Creek from sinking deeper into a compromised state:

  • Shutting off open or leaking supply lines
  • Boarding up or tarping damaged roofs, windows, doors, and siding to prevent further leaks
  • Elevating heavy items above the wet surface to protect floors and prevent saturation
  • Packing and removing belongings to a safe, dry space before they are affected or for professional assessment
  • Removing irreparably damaged non-structural items for proper disposal, preventing moisture seepage, and clearing the area for comprehensive water removal
  • Employing various methods of water extraction, including pumping, truck-mounted extraction, and portable extraction using commercial-grade wet/dry vacuums
  • Utilizing advanced technologies to suction liquids from different layers of flooring and behind walls, using negative air pressure
  • Establishing drying targets for each wet material and employing low-profile air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to facilitate evaporation


Why Aggressive Water Mitigation Matters

In Johns Creek, aggressive water mitigation is crucial for several reasons. Materials that remain wet for an extended period, typically more than 24 to 48 hours, are highly susceptible to mold growth and further damage. Efficient water extraction drastically reduces drying times, making it 1200 times more effective than relying solely on passive draining and drying methods. Additionally, it's important to avoid drying materials too quickly or beyond normal moisture levels, as this can cause additional harm. For instance, rushing the drying process and exceeding target moisture levels can further damage hardwood floors.

At AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford, we take pride in educating our customers about the necessary steps to restore their properties to a clean, dry, and comfortable after water damage. We maintain transparency throughout the project, from the initial assessment to the final touches. During our initial conversations, we focus on water mitigation strategies that will interrupt ongoing destruction and safeguard the property for subsequent remediation and restoration. Once mitigation is complete, our restoration efforts commence. We remove and replace ruined materials, rebuild spaces, and refinish salvageable items. Our skilled crews, equipped with specialized training and tools, address secondary damage such as mold growth.
