Floods can cause a great deal of damage wherever you reside; this includes York, Maine. Whether the damage comes from a burst pipe, an overflowing toilet or sink, or a natural disaster such as a flood, hurricane or nor’easter, there is still a lot of damage that has to be repaired. Depending on the scope of the disaster, it may be in your best interest to hire a flood damage mitigation company.

Mitigation is defined as the action of decreasing the severity, urgency or painfulness of something. Water damage mitigation is the prevention and management of floods and the damage they can cause. Professional flood damage mitigation services can relieve much of the stress and cost that is produced by flooding. When you are bombarded by water damage, in whichever form it comes, you need to find a good flood damage mitigation company as soon as possible.

Proactive steps to mitigating flood damage

Flood mitigation can reduce the severity of flood damage when it strikes. Getting flood insurance is an excellent way to protect yourself after the damage is done. But here are some other ways a community can prepare for floods.

  • Discouraging the development in high-risk areas. Sometimes it’s best to leave regions in high-risk zones undeveloped.
  • Elevating structures – if you live in a high-risk area and prefer not to relocate, you could elevate your home.
  • Divert water flow – A coastal city, such as York, Maine could build retaining walls, dams and retention ponds to redirect the flood waters away from at risk structures.

Protecting your home

If you are in a high-risk area –don’t despair. Even if your home was affected by the flood waters you can still protect it from further damage

Before you do anything, you must put safety first.

  • Ensure the structure is safe before entering. If the damage is extensive, you may require the help of a contractor or structural engineer.
  • Make sure to wear the appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment)
  • Secure property and restrict access to authorized personnel only

Once the building is safe, dry out the property

  • Open doors and windows
  • Use fans to direct the air out of the home.
  • Use dehumidifiers
  • Coordinate services with a reputable flood damage mitigation company

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
