Water damage to your home can be a complete mess. The best thing to do is get it dried and soon. Mold can start taking hold in 24 hours and then the clean up can become far more expensive. Sometimes with smaller water losses you can dry them yourself with pulling up carpet and running a few fans. It is recommended that you use a professional for larger losses, we are trained to make sure it is opened up and dried with Air blowers and commercial grade dehumidifiers.
Some water losses are covered by your homeowners insurance policy some are not, we recommend calling your agent or insurance company to see if you are covered. If covered you will only have to cover your deductible.
Even if yo are not covered getting everything dried properly will save you money and you will have a healthier home till you get the repairs done.
