Three years ago I had a water softener installed.  The water where we lived was hard and was doing a real number on our appliances, faucets and drains.  At the time, I was worried that the water would damage everything and shorten their lifespan, so I did something about it.  Everything has been problem-free since then until last week.

Last week, one of the hoses sprung a leak and before we knew it, our basement was under five inches of water.  We would have caught it sooner, but I was out of town for most of last week, so I didn’t notice it until I came back home.

Thank goodness I caught it when I did.

Wanting to deal with the issue as soon as possible, I went online to find a water damage restoration company that could come out and deal with the problem as soon as possible.  I didn’t want to have to deal with any other issues such as black mold, so I knew that I needed to fix our house as soon as possible.

Thankfully the company that I contacted came out quickly and dealt with the problem right away.  After the repairs were completed, our basement looked as good as new.  In the future, I will know who to call to fix any water damage to my home.
