More stormy weather is forecasted... and it's a catch 22. The rain is needed, but for many, it means their homes will flood again this summer.
Flood cleanup crews say just mopping up the water is not good enough. That is because water quickly absorbs into walls and the carpet, and fans will not get it all out. If water sits for even a day, mold can start to set in, which can be dangerous.
Experts say the key is to get professional help in cleaning up your house. They say to not just call carpet cleaners. You need to make sure the cleanup crew is certified in water damage restoration.
