Restoration and Clean-up

After removing the water, it is important to restore and clean up the affected areas.  Often times, you will have to gather towels, fans, and other drying equipment that can remove moisture and promote drying, which will stop the spread of any additional water.  This will then stop the chance for residual damage to occur, such as mold growth or electrical hazards.  Without proper clean-up, your home can suffer expensive damages to its structure.
