Keep in mind x==number is an expression which can be manipulated with other Mathematica functions.

Specifically, note

FullForm[Reduce[x + 1 == 0,  x]]

results in 

Equal[x, -1]

So, the -1 can be extracted using Apply as follows:

Last[List@@Reduce[x + 1, x]]

or even more directly with Part as

Reduce[x + 1 == 0, x][[2]]

or

Part[Reduce[x +1 == 0, x], 2]
