Assess the Cause of the Damage

Depending on the size of the area damaged by water, you may need to temporarily move yourself and your belongings out of the home to prevent further damage. After using our tools to remove all excess water from the area, we do another thorough assessment to ensure that that there is no mold or bacterial growth.
