What is water mitigation?
Water mitigation commonly referred to as water damage restoration is the process by which water damage is limited and remedied after a flood or permeating leak. By mitigating a water leak we can prevent any additional damage from occurring simply by taking the correct actions, quickly.
Whether you have suffered a plumbing failure or have fallen victim to a storm or natural disaster that has caused water to rush into or leak into your home, we can help. Soaked carpets, rugs, floors, water damaged walls & ceilings, as well as warped floors and wet furniture are amongst the most common visible damage to a home or business. However, they are all still less devastating than a damaged foundation which is not uncommon when water damage goes unmitigated or is mitigated incorrectly.

When to Call a Professional Water Mitigation Company in Sunnyvale
Since most water damage can come both suddenly and slowly over time the damage can be immediate or progressive. In both cases valuable items can become permanently damaged or destroyed. This is especially true when the proper steps are not taken to contact a licensed water damage restoration company. Sunnyvale residents are encouraged to contact a water mitigation company within the first 24 to 48 hours of the first sign of water leak or water damage.
Given the light winter months and moderate temperatures in Sunnyvale California and Santa Clara County as a whole, natural disasters are the most rare cause of severe water damage in a home. The single leading cause? Plumbing failure! When water or moisture seeps into any item, especially one with value to you, there are immediate steps that can be taken! Implementing the proper protocol can reduce the long-term effects of the water damage and restore items to their pre-damage conditions.

Don’t Delay Water Mitigation Services
Often times home or business owners falsely believe that shop vacuums or carpet drying equipment will suffice in extracting water from carpets, flooring and walls. However, without specialized equipment it is all but guaranteed that water will remain under baseboards, inside molding, sill plates & inside walls. Second story leaks can seep through carpets, carpet pads & flooring and cause damage to floors/ceilings below.
Also, without controlling the internal humidity items that were once unaffected from the water damage will become damaged as a result of water absorption. The increased water in the air will get sucked into couches, electronics, furniture, walls, & floors. This almost always leads to the growth of mold which will require mold removal services in Sunnyvale.
