A month ago my washing machine flooded half of my house. I had to get up all the flooring because mold was already growing. I called BIG BEAR RESTORATION in Powder Springs. Phone # 770-222-5220
They were one of the best companies I have dealt with my whole life. Very trustful and dependable. It may help people who need help with their damaged houses.
