What is Water Mitigation?

Water mitigation is eliminating, preventing, or reducing the water damage in your home that might occur during a flood or storm. For us, this means using natural elements to absorb or redirect the water before it gets into your basement or slicks your outdoor pathways. Our landscaping to divert water methods use elements such as dry stream beds and stone retaining walls to navigate water in a way that is both safe and visually appealing. For example, our retaining walls are stacked instead of held together with mortar and can use your home’s natural materials or our own.

Take a look at some of the water mitigation projects we have worked on:

What To Do If Your House Floods

As mentioned before, we often do not realize we have water problems until it is too late. If your home has flooded and you’re unsure what to do next, follow these steps:

  • Turn off all electricity to avoid shocking
  • Stop the leak and identify the source
  • Open windows and doors and turn on air conditioning to improve air flow
  • Place tin foil under furniture legs to prevent staining
  • Never stand in flood water

After you have the situation under control, you should contact your insurance agency.
