Can I handle water damage myself?
If your unfinished basement has water, you could extract it, clean it, and set up drying equipment yourself if you don’t mind hard work. But we recommend you call CATCO if you have water damage to any finished areas of your property. Water can intrude into wall voids and other spaces, and you setting up fans to dry out the area could actually cause secondary damage by creating a MORE humid environment. Our certified technicians have the training and professional equipment to effectively dry the space, thus avoid future problems with delamination of materials, malodors and mold growth.
