When damage occurs in your home, it’s important to know when mitigation should occur, and when restoration occurs. Here you can learn more about the difference between the two.
Mitigation: The process in which damage is reduced and prevented by taking fast action. For Example, if a room in your home floods, the mitigation would include sucking out the excess water, removing soaked drywall and carpet, and setting up fans to dry out carpet and walls. If there is a leak in your roof, the mitigation would include putting up a tarp immediately to prevent water from leaking into the home. Boarding up your home, the emergency removal of trees, and temporarily storing belongings are also examples of mitigation.
Restoration: This is the Process in which the property that has been damaged is reconstructed. It’s important that the mitigation has already taken place. For example, after the mitigation of the home flood mentioned above, the home restoration would include: replacing insulation and drywall, painting walls, installing new flooring, and the replacement of any other appliances and furniture.
If you’ve faced damage to your home and are in need of mitigation or restoration, give Tactical Restoration a call.
