As a matter of fact, the first step in water damage cleanup is mitigation, a type of rapid intervention. Hence, the purpose of water mitigation is to contain the initial damage and prevent it from growing further. Furthermore, it prevents secondary damages like warped floors and the onset of mold formation.

On the other hand, the goal of water remediation is to clean and repair the damage. This remediation process establishes a dry, sanitary environment that serves as a clean foundation for restoring the property.
