Any property that has suffered water damage should perform actions that will prevent the damages from getting any worse. Those actions are called “Water Mitigation,” also known as a “Dry Out.” The Dry Out process will include water removal, implementation of specialized drying equipment, as well as the removal and clean-up of non-salvageable materials such as baseboards and drywall. A Dry Out is essential to preventing further damage, the prevention of mold growth and it’s also recommended by the insurance company if you’ve filed a claim.
