We are flooded in my furnished basement. We have furniture and carpet. The water is still coming in after 5 days.
We are going to have the basement cleaned by a specialist. By that I mean carpet taken up water sucked out, cleaned dried with fans and hopefully dehumidifiers.
But I want to be protected against mold. I just learned that cleaning a basement and doing mold remediation are two separate things. Should we hire someone who does both? Or will getting the water out on time protect us from the mold?
