Mitigating or mitigation activities are common terms you will hear us, and others refer to throughout the insurance industry. Mitigation simply means to lessen or reduce the damage caused by the exposure of your property to the damage-causing elements (fire, water, vehicle impacts, tree impacts, etc.) If you review your insurance policy carefully, you’ll often find specific wording regarding your responsibility to do as much as possible to prevent damage and reduce the property’s exposure to additional harm..

Answers: Disaster Property Restoration can be your guide through this process. While each property is different, we usually recommend an Industrial Hygienist “IH” be enlisted to help us track the source of the issue, and provide “air clearance tests” for you when we’re done with our cleaning process. We recommend a site inspection by one of our experts who can guide you through the process. Immediately we recommend that you keep those with compromised immune systems (the young, or the elderly, or those with known respiratory issues) away from the affected area. Try to eliminate air movement in that area to avoid contaminating other areas. Call Disaster Property Restoration as soon as you discover these issues, and schedule a visit with us so we can better assist you with this process.
