We live in the Metro DC area and with the torrential rains, our 12 x 20' finished basement flooded. We have paneled walls and carpeted floors. In addition, we have built-ins on one wall. The water has soaked much of the carpet. We received a quote from a water restoration company, and it was $2000. The quote included removal and disposal of the carpet, extraction of any remaining water, setting up dehumidifiers and fans, and spraying a mold and mildew control spray.
It seems like we could do the same work for not much money. We already have a dehumidifier and wet vacuums. So, we would only need to purchase fans and mold spray. I guess my question is, am I overlooking anything?
