What Is Mitigation?

According to FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency,

“Mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. Mitigation is taking action now—before the next disaster—to reduce human and financial consequences later”


When it comes to water damage, the direct effect of water is only part of the equation. If building materials and their contents are not property dried in a timely manner, the following mold growth in wet areas can make a relatively small water loss a far greater matter to handle.

It is a natural reaction for property owners to just  “do nothing” when they experience a water loss or flood at their property. The urgency of the situation might not be apparent, but if nothing is done, and if the loss is not properly handled, mold growth will begin in 2 to 3 days, and the impact may be magnified substantially by inaction. By that time, a property owner usually begins to realize that the “do nothing” approach was a bad idea.

Insurance adjusters, first responders, and others with specific knowledge understand the meaning of “urgency”.  They see emergency situations routinely, and understand that quick action can greatly impact the overall outcome of a disaster.

The TEAM of Restoration Xperts has been offering advice and direction to property owners for many years.  They have seen water losses, hurricane damage, fires, floods, vehicle impacts etc.   Each scenario has its own methodology of mitigation, but the common theme is “prevent further damages through quick action”.
