It's tough to predict where water will go after it starts flowing. You can't expect it to simply evaporate; water has a tendency to reach hidden places. Contact us to evaluate the situation at your property.
We begin by checking the source of the water damage. It could be coming from a clean source, the faucet, or a pipe. It could be coming from a sewage line. Depending on the source will depend on what we can save or what will need to be removed and disinfected. Next, we start assessing the water damage and removing all damaged materials. Removing the water won't address bacteria.
We have the tools and personnel here in Cedar City to help.
