Flooding is a devastating problem that no homeowner wants to have. Not only will it damage the physical structure of your home, it can also harm your family’s health. If water is not properly extracted, moisture is left in hard to reach areas like in between your walls. This will promote the growth of mold which as we all know can cause allergic reaction. In severe cases, it may even lead to death. If you experience flooding in your home, it is always best to leave it in the hands of the professionals.

After this, the framing was wiped clean and sanitized. Luckily, all the flooring in the affected areas save for the master bedroom was saved. The other rooms of the home at tiles so they were resistant to water. Meanwhile, the master bedroom was covered with carpeting which, unfortunately, absorbed moisture from the leak.
