When your home or place of business is flooded, you need to act fast to avoid secondary damage, such as mold, from occurring. If water is not extracted in a timely manner, microbials (mold) can, and most likely will, form.
So what do you do first? Do you try to save your possessions? Do you evacuate the house or business? Do you try to remove the standing water yourself?
