How We Helped One Family Recover From Water Damage

My cat knocked over a candle in my downstairs den and started a fire. Luckily it was confined to the bedroom only, although I had smoke damage throughout my house. I was thoroughly happy with the professional manner in which I was taken care of. They even took care of all communications with my insurance company. All I had to do was pay them with my insurance check when the work was done.
