If you’re a home owner, one of your worst nightmares is coming home to find your basement flooded and everything down there ruined. Maybe heavy rain seeped in, maybe your water heater blew, or maybe your washing machine malfunctioned. Whatever the case, a flood can easily cost thousands of dollars in damage, and that’s on top of the headache of drying everything out.
