After getting nearly 6" of water out of our basement, our insurance comapny recommended Paul Davis Restoration. They came out and tried to dry the thick carpeting by only using fans and not removing the padding underneath. As a comparison, try drying a sponge while it sits in a pan of water. After hiring another contractor, the carpeting was removed to an outside location to dry, the padding removed and trashed, as well as checking behind the drywall in several locations for mold, which was not recommended by Paul Davis Systems. I don't think I would ever recommend that anyone use their service.
