Water damage is one of the most common and costly types of damage to occur in your home. If not dealt with quickly and correctly, it can cause more damage in the long run. Mold, fungus, bacteria, and dry rot can all be caused by untreated water damage. Some types of water can also contain dangerous pathogens, which can cause serious health risks to you and your family.

This could include removing carpets, baseboards, drywall, and cabinets. It is also important to document all damage to your property with pictures and videos.
