Standing water in a living room. Trying to wrap your head around water damage can be frustrating. Reach out to SERVPRO of North Raleigh and Wake Forest today.

Water Mitigation Can Help Reduce Losses and Prevent Secondary Damages. SERVPRO Can Help Mitigate Water Damage in Your Raleigh Home

When water empties into a home environment, it begins to attract microbes and can immediately absorb any pre-existing dirt or grime. A water spill can often worsen over time as micro-organisms reproduce, which can cause a clean water spill to escalate into a grey or black water scenario quickly. The process of preventing water from degrading and damaging materials in the home is mitigation. Mitigation can help with:

  • Water damage repairs
  • Water clean up
  • Burst pipes

The main proponent of water mitigation in your Raleigh home is to drain and dry the property as quickly as possible. Wet surfaces and materials can easily break down with prolonged exposure. SERVPRO technicians guarantee to arrive on-site within four hours of notification of loss to help reduce the likelihood of water damages becoming permanent. Water mitigation relies on:

  • Expert organization, including setting staging areas, tracking water migration, and assessing materials.
  • High-powered machinery to pump out water or dry the indoor environment efficiently.
  • Effective cleaning methods specific to the type of materials, such as emulsifying powders for carpets or disinfectants for hard floors. 

To prevent excessive losses after a water leak, contact SERVPRO of North Raleigh and Wake Forest for water mitigation at (919) 790-1222.
