Without the pumps, in 2 hours a foot of water stood in the kitchen, half-bath, dining and living rooms. A few days later a new pumping system with generator had removed the mass of water, except what had wicked up the wood paneling, drywall and behind the tile walls of the bath. It began to smell. Mold grew. In the end, both kitchen and bath had to be torn out and rebuilt, and a waterline is still visible on the paneled walls. My cookbooks, which were never actually in water, grew black mildew and mold. Not good, a biohazard around food. I copied certain recipes and then got rid of some of the books, but who can throw away a red plaid?
