Mitigation Services Encompass Multiple Strategies and Approaches Happening Simultaneously to Resolve Pressing Water Loss Concerns for Your Property  

Understanding the mitigation process can help many Laconia homeowners quickly come to terms with the necessary restorative steps required to protect their homes and belongings. We have skilled and certified water restoration (WRT), structural drying (ASD), and microbial remediation (AMRT) professionals to help in the various niches necessary to recover property after a substantial water loss event. 

When it comes to the specifics of water mitigation for Laconia residences, several individual actions make up this recovery phase's entirety. Beginning as soon as our team first arrives at a damaged address, we use mitigation techniques exclusively designed to reduce the impact that disasters have on the property, protect personal belongings, and ensure the safety of those still in the area when restoration work begins. There are many methods for accomplishing this approach, including construction solutions, extraction, content management, and similar actions. 

Do Contractors Respond with Restoration Technicians?  

It can be a considerable challenge to see your property in disarray after a water emergency, especially when repairs and construction work is necessary. Because our organization includes a team of in-house contractors capable of performing controlled demolition, we can dispatch these professionals alongside our restoration technicians. Depending on the house's situation, temporary construction solutions and recovery efforts might precede the mitigation process. Broken portions of plumbing, for example, can be a continual threat for further water damage until this area gets repaired. We can look to our residential contractors to oversee specific tasks on a water restoration site, including: 

  • Repairs
  • Debris Removal
  • Controlled Demolition 

What Approach is Most Efficient for Extraction? 

There is no mistaking the value of water removal during a disaster. Many situations can leave multiple areas of the property contending with standing water and pooling concerns. Standing water can create a damaging situation in the house, as absorption into porous materials can allow for structural degradation and the migration of these water loss effects. A limited damage area can grow exponentially without addressing the need for extraction quickly. There are several tools in our warehouse that can address these pressing concerns, such as: 

  • Submersible Pumps – Electric submersible pumps can be a cornerstone of efficient water removal when no solids or debris accumulate. We utilize smaller and more versatile units with a 2 HP motor for quiet and continuous water removal. 
  • Wet Vacuums – Vacuums are among the most versatile and practical tools in our inventory for water removal, primarily because of its use with various attachments. These machines are ideal for less severe pooling water. 
  • Carpet Wands – Porous materials like carpeting can quickly absorb high volumes of standing water, leaving your house with a need for water removal solutions for these flooring types. Wands pull water from the top layer of carpeted floors and can be ideal for situations where the padding is getting replaced. 

What is Content Management?  

Water mitigation by our SERVPRO professionals also fixates on protecting your personal belongings, furniture, and other residence contents. Job scoping allows our project manager to inspect these items and determine which can benefit from varying types of recovery options. Some items only require relocation, while others might need more thorough and intricate cleaning and restoration at our nearby facility. The pack-out process is rarely the most cost-effective solution, but it can be vital to restoring your belongings when no other possibility works. We have three primary approaches to content management, including: 

  • On-Site Relocation
  • In-House Surface Cleaning and Drying
  • Off-Site Recovery Solutions 

What Happens After Mitigation?  

While the water mitigation phase in Laconia is a vital element of your home's overall recovery after a water emergency, several actions must follow promptly. Drying is often the heart of restoration for water loss incidents after mitigation completes, and this involves several tools in our inventory like air movers and dehumidifiers. In addition to thorough drying, sometimes the situation requires reconstruction and repair in areas where these fixes might not have been pressing concerns during the emergency services or mitigation phases. 

There is a reason your neighbors have chosen to entrust their homes with experienced professionals from our SERVPRO of The Lakes Region team. Regardless of what individual mitigation tasks your property might require, we have the equipment and the technicians to help. Contact us anytime at (603) 527-2518.
