Once visible water is extracted, Flood Doctor’s experts begin to develop and design a plan for places you can’t see, specifically– drywall, insulation, beams, ceiling tiles and framing.

Even if the room appears dry, mold can start to grow behind walls and on wood where you can’t see it, which can cause major problems down the road.
