Damaged Plumbing & Appliance Leaks

If a sink, bathtub, water heater or other appliance breaks, the outcome can range from bothersome to hazardous. Stagnant flooding left on the floor can drain into tight spots, and pool in out of reach areas. You then cause wood damage and harbor a mold invasion. If your water damage comes from sewage or dishwasher overflow, you additionally risk harboring pathogens. Have an emergency specialist inspect the area to prevent more expenses down the road.

Water after Fire Damage
