I really hate it when I hear about my friends and family who have to hire a company to repair the water damage. I know that it will most likely cost thousands of dollars and that will be really bad because no one wants to deal with those kind of costs and expenses. The last time my parents house flooded they had to replace all of the carpet and padding underneath the carpet. They also had to replace all the tile flooring and also the hardwood flooring. It was a horrible experience for them because it took over 2 months to repair everything back to normal.
