WATER DAMAGE MITIGATION SERVICES

Water Damage MitigationFlood Doctor has been mitigating damages caused by water in the Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia area for over 20 years.  Our techs are constantly taking extended education courses and learning new techniques. The water damage mitigation industry as a whole has come a long way since we started in the late 1990s. Drying techniques and drying equipment today is significantly better than what was available even 5 years ago.

Although many things have changed, one remains exactly the same;  Lack of knowledge by homeowners about the field. Understandably, water damage mitigation is not something property owners typically spend time thinking about. Most of us only think about water damage after we come face to face with it. To make this even more complicated, there is a lot of misinformation out there.

What is Water Damage Mitigation?

Water damage in your home is always a stressful situation. You’re dealing with a lot of questions – How much is this going to cost and why? How can I prevent this from happening again? Will my insurance policy cover all this?

To answer these and many other questions, we’ve put together a list of helpful information about water damage mitigation and what you need to know.

Water Damage Mitigation Costs

The average homeowner in the Washington, D.C. metro area spends between $3,00 and $10,000 to mitigate and restore property damage caused by water. The cause and extent of damages to your home play a major factor in determining the final costs. A licensed professional like Flood Doctor’s trained and certified technicians can determine the cause and extent of the destruction by categorizing and classifying the damage to your home.
Want to avoid large cleanup and repair bills? Preventative maintenance and cleaning up quickly after damage are critical to keeping costs down. How long moisture is left untreated increases the scope of the damage and allows mold to grow.
Preventing damage by contacting professionals to diagnose causes and make small repairs can save thousands later. Regardless of cause or cost, always document the damage for insurance claims.
