Hello. My name is Arthur Simons. Thanks for stopping by my website. I hope to provide you with some helpful information. You see, I made a huge mistake last year when we had a pipe burst causing a good deal of water damage to our home. I thought I could remove the water and repair the damages myself. I called a plumber to fix the pipe, and then I tackled the standing water and damage that was left behind. I had to replace some flooring, both linoleum, and carpet. I also did some wall and minor structural repairs. What I didn't do was take into consideration that the water soaked into the structure and became a breeding ground for mold and mildew. In the long run, about six months later, I had to call a damage contractor in to access and repair.
