Water Damage Restoration & Clean Up Checklist



This free e-book explains the step-by-step process to assess, mitigate, and recover from water damage after a natural disaster.

After the flood waters recede and the clean up has been done, most folks want to get back into their homes or businesses and start rebuilding. The problem is that wood that has been submerged in water has likely absorbed a large amount of water. Rebuilding too quickly after a flood can cause continuing problems such as mold growth, insect infestations, and deterioration of the wood and wall coverings.
