What Does A Mitigation Contractor Do?
Let’s start with the term “mitigation.” It means to reduce the severity, seriousness or painfulness of some event. Now, let’s apply that to the contracting sense. Mitigation for contractors is a skilled trade occupation and the job of a mitigation contractor is to minimize damage to your home or business’s structure. This means to make it safe for repairs after mold damage, water damage, fire damage, smoke damage and other types of situations that may affect your home. Our services save homeowners and businesses from a ton of headaches, while also minimizing costs for both property owners and insurance providers.
Our contractors have years of experience working on all parts of the house. This includes basements, kitchens, bathrooms, decks, and windows among many other areas of expertise. So no matter where the emergency occurred, we can provide quick and effective repairs. And as a mitigation contractor, we will follow the insurance claim to make sure that the proper repairs are made within the budget.
Common Water Mitigation Process
There are common procedures any mitigation contractor follows. To better understand the process, check out these few aspects. These steps deal mainly with water damage, for what its worth.
Assessing the Damage
During a damage assessment, our contractors take a look at the affected areas and determine what actions to follow in regards to fixing the damage. And doing so in the simplest way possible. When flooding occurs, it is best to act quickly. Otherwise you run the risk of mold.
This is when we remove the water from the property. In most cases, the furniture and other household belongings can stay where they are during the water extraction.
Drying and Dehumidification
Our team will do its best to dry the area safely and quickly to prevent mold contamination and growth, as well as limit any further repair work. As a trusted mitigation contractor in New York, we are trained to monitor the loss and make adjustments when necessary.
When you act quickly with water damage, you will prevent any mold issues arising. A quick response stops the growth of mold and our thorough drying ensures a full recovery of the premises.
