Water removal is an important step when mitigating a water loss scenario. Mitigation is defined as actions taken to prevent secondary damage. In water damage scenarios this can include anything from removing affected contents from the damaged areas to cutting out drywall and drying the structure. The key to properly mitigating a water loss scenario is immediate response time and taking decisive actions. Prevention of mold is important while mitigating a water loss. Antimicrobials are used to kill mold spores and prevent future growth. Mold can grow on most surfaces so an experienced restoration technician will know when to remove the mold completely or to just treat the affected surface and clean/salvage the contents or structural item. The main concept in mitigating the water loss is to remove all standing or "bound" water, increase temperature and air flow, and dry out the structure. This can be achieved with a series of specialized equipment. Bulldog Cleaning & Restoration offers 24 hours 7 days a week emergency service response for all disaster type losses.
