Mitigation Vs. Remediation
SERVPRO of Bennington & Rutland Counties often gets asked the question, “What is the difference between Mitigation and Remediation?”. So, let us help you clear up a lot of your questions when it comes to a disaster that happens either in your home or business.
What is Mitigation?
The actual definition of Mitigation is the action of reducing the severity, seriousness, or painfulness of something. For example, if there was a water loss that happened, and an area was flooded and it had damaged your structure, SERVPRO of Bennington & Rutland Counties would mitigate the loss. This means we remove the effects materials and use drying equipment to help prevent any further damage in the coming future. I.e. Mold Growth.
What is Remediation?
Remediation is the act of remedying something, in reversing or stopping environmental damage. For example, if you have a lot of mold in an area, SERVPRO of Bennington & Rutland Counties will remove the mold and help prevent it from coming back by using industrial strength microbials and equipment to remediate the problem. Mold is a natural spore that can spread throughout an area, so it is best that the problem is dealt with at a professional level.
