What to Expect During and After Water Damage in Your Home

Remember that TIME MATTERS when you have water damage. Water is extremely invasive, finding the path of least resistance, following gravity and quickly spreading through your home and being absorbed into floors, walls, insulation, furniture and personal items.

SELECT Restoration is a 24-hour water damage cleanup and restoration company serving the Greater Toronto Area.
