Can I Extract Water Myself?
As you may already know, water damage and flooding can cause several different types of problems. Most of these problems are best handled in the hands of a professional. For example, you may not be able to remove all the moisture from your flooding incident. If not properly done, mold could easily grow and become an entirely new problem.
