Homeowners usually come across minor floods, dry it up with towels and put a fan on for a few hours...
Sometimes that works if you catch it on time. underneath carpet, wood floors, etc is where you don't see where the excess water ended up.
Always call and make sure to get your home checked out properly when dealing with water damage.
The last thing you want is a large amount of mold growing underneath your floors where you cant see, causing a bunch of health problems for yourself and loved ones.
