Water Cleanup & Restoration after a Flood - Fleetwood NY Water Removal There is nothing more disheartening than walking into the lower level of your home, and find yourself knee-deep in icky water. You may even walk into a client's property and realize that a flood has occurred -- that "mildew smell."
