What the heck was that...oh boy

This is no major flood or restoration job by any stretch of the imagination but even I was surprised at just how much remediation is involved from the seemingly benign water leak under my kitchen sink. 



I have visited more than a few flood houses throughout the U.S., and even in Australia, in my years with ICS and R&R, as well as getting the up close and personal view from the EXPERIENCE at the Connections Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, but this is my first real life "experience" in my own home.

  This is no major flood or restoration job by any stretch of the imagination but even I was surprised at just how much remediation is involved from the seemingly benign water leak under my kitchen sink.

  The burst of water that came Monday of this week in the morning that my wife heard under the sink from the drain pipe was the first notice we had that this pipe had been slowly leaking and creating havoc in our cabinet under the sink, the wood floor in the kitchen and the storage area of our basement and some contents.

  I didn’t even know mold could grow in Colorado, the driest place on the planet this side of Antarctica, but go figure, it was there.

  Allow me to recognize some new friends, Troy and Nathan, of Delta Disaster Services.

  There is no better compliment to any service company than knowing that they do the right thing. I say that because our plumber didn’t hesitate for one moment in taking full responsibility for this situation and bringing in a trusted restoration partner to take care of it.

  They’re not done yet; stay tuned, there’s more to come.
