Water Mitigation

What Is Water Mitigation?

Water mitigation involves swiftly assessing, containing, and preventing additional water damage following an initial incident. The objective is to minimize property loss from water leaks or floods by halting the spread and preventing secondary damage. This typically includes water removal, drying, sanitizing, and cleaning. Initiating water mitigation promptly is crucial after a leak or water damage is noticed. While homeowners can handle some steps, relying on an expert for a thorough water mitigation process is often necessary.

Water Mitigation vs.
Water Damage Restoration

Water mitigation and water damage restoration are often used interchangeably, but there is a key difference. Water mitigation involves immediate measures to minimize damage, while restoration comprises repairs after full drying, bringing the property back to its pre-loss condition, which may include sanitizing, antimicrobial application, and repairs like carpet cleaning or drywall patching.

Water Mitigation

Our Water Mitigation Process in Lakeland

1. Stop the Flow of Water

The initial and crucial step in water mitigation is to halt the water flow into your property, ensuring that further steps in the mitigation process can effectively reduce damage after addressing the source of the leak.

2. Categorize the Level or Range of Contamination

Water mitigation experts begin by assessing the source of water damage and categorize it: 

Category 1: Water from clean sources like a burst pipe or broken toilet tank.
Category 2: Moderately contaminated water, often known as gray water, from sources like dishwasher overflow.
Category 3: Grossly contaminated water, referred to as black water, from sewage or flooding, containing harmful agents.

3. Classifying the Extent of Damage

Our technicians assess the extent of water damage and classify it: 

Class 1: Minimal water damage, affecting less than 5% of the space’s surfaces.
Class 2: Significant water absorption, impacting 5%-40% of the space’s surfaces.
Class 3: Extensive water absorption, affecting over 40% of the space’s surfaces.
Class 4: Deep water damage in materials like plaster or hardwood, requiring specialized drying methods due to low evaporation rates.

4. Perform Water Extraction and Dry Out the Space

After categorizing and classifying the water damage, our technicians select appropriate tools to remove standing water. After extraction, they proceed with thorough drying using equipment like pumps, vacuums, dehumidifiers, air scrubbers, and fans to restore normal moisture levels, preventing mold growth and secondary damage.

5. Create a Restoration Plan of Action

The final step is to create a restoration plan. This plan outlines an estimated timeline, salvageable items, key steps, and recommendations for additional repairs if required, ensuring clarity and alignment before commencement.

When I had discovered water damage to my wall from my leaking AC unit, I was referred by Frank Gay Services to United Water Restoration Group. UWRG provided immediate response and had sent an agent to assess the area within the hour. I was very pleased with how quickly the whole process took, considering this was during the holidays. Everyone was very courteous, unintrusive, & highly professional. They even made sure to be mindful of the aquariums & displays that were around the area. All were helpful when it came to any of my questions or concerns that needed clarification. Most notably, Larry Lynn, who was the agent that had initially made the assessment & had assisted me throughout the entire process; checking in regularly & available when it came to responding to my texts. The actual job only took a couple of days. Composing of two teams ( 1st for setup on Day 1 & 2nd for removal on Day 2) Each team taking about 2 hours to complete their work. It was fast, efficient, & clean. I just want to thank all you guys who came by; Larry Lynn, Trevor Monje, Bailey Howard, Lee Ashton, & Jordan Washington. And everyone else on the team from the office that I was in contact with. I really appreciate your services & the hard work you did!!
