My husband and I are about to buy a house that was used as a group home about six years ago. The house was also used for fire department practice, and I don't know if they actually hosed the place down or if the pipes burst, but there's quite a bit of water damage. It has a huge commercial Traulsen stainless refrigerator/freezer and a Franklin 6 burner range. The range has a lot of rust on it. I understand that stainless doesn't rust, so could it be from the burners? I also have read that they don't make Franklins anymore. Can anybody tell me about these appliances, if they can be refurbished and where, if it's worth it, and if they're worth selling? The fridge seems okay, as does the stainless diswhasher, but could water have just made these things garbage?
