What Successful Johns Creek Water Mitigation Looks Like

Water Mitigation with Results by AdvantaClean

When you hire professional water mitigation services, you can prevent water issues from further damaging your belongings and Johns Creek property. Mitigation involves stopping the spread of damage water causes, either by pulling up standing water or drying out all wet building materials to prevent mold growth. AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford is here to assist with all your extraction and restoration needs. 

Flooding and water damage fallout is one of the country's most significant sources of home insurance claims. If the excess water is not addressed adequately with professional water mitigation in Johns Creek, it can lead to secondary damage and mold growth, which boosts the restoration costs significantly. 

What is Water Mitigation Versus Remediation and Restoration?

To sum it up, mitigation prevents further damage from the water incident. Mitigating should be the first step in the overall restoration process, which brings your home back to pre-damage condition. Halting all damage progression is critical. Once this happens, water restoration technicians can further assess the impacted areas and make recommendations. 

Remediation is when a water damage company works to salvage belongings or building materials that are not too severely damaged. 

The last part of the process is the actual water damage restoration, bolstered by prior mitigation and remediation steps. During this phase, our AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford technicians address anything that is not salvageable and perform the necessary repair work to return your property to normal again. 

What are the Steps of Mitigation?

Stopping migration and damage is imperative whenever you have a water emergency in your home or business. Regardless of where the water originated, slowing water and moisture spread and keeping it from impacting other areas is the entire point of mitigation. 

Our water damage cleanup team takes these five crucial steps when working to save your belongings and property:

  • Inspection and assessment

  • Water removal services

  • Damaged item removal

  • Temporary solutions

  • Remediation and restoration

During inspection and assessment:

We arrive at your property and begin a thorough inspection to determine the root cause of the problem, identify the migration path, and the type of water we are dealing with. We also look at areas the water may have already damaged, including:

  • Contents

  • Ceiling

  • Drywall

  • Flooring

During water removal services:

Our team brings in specialized equipment for water extraction and begins moisture control with industrial-grade fans and dehumidifiers. Reducing the water and moisture in the affected areas helps limit bacteria and the possibility of mold growth.

During damaged item removal:

In this mitigation phase, our technicians removed wet and damaged items from your property, including carpeting, drywall, and furnishings. Not only does this reduce mold risk, but it also helps reduce the moisture levels in the room so our dehumidification equipment can do its job. 

During temporary solutions:

Even when using our state-of-the-art equipment, drying your interior takes time. While our efforts are underway, we board up any exposed areas or damaged windows and tarp anything that requires covering. 

During remediation and restoration:

Our crew chief coordinates a plan with the rest of the team for the next steps after we complete mitigation. This phase may involve making an inventory list of salvageable items and preparing them for reintroduction to your home. We may also work on an intensive restoration plan to address things beyond repair. The steps here may involve:

  • New flooring installation.

  • Repair of structural damage.

  • Any other measures that are necessary to return your property to pre-damage condition.
