Cleaning up after a flood can be a real pain in the behind, especially when it could have been avoided completely. Recently a couple bought a home and moved back to their home state, upon entering their new home one of the first things to hit them was a mildew smell and sticky floors. As they turned on the lights they saw that water from their washing machine had spilled out on to the floor above and leaked through the ceiling, down the walls and even down to the basement floor below. The culprit was a $5 rubber hose that was damaged and it cost thousands of dollars and months to repair all of the water damage. Luckily for them their home owners policy covered the cost of flood water damage repair but the whole thing could have been avoided had the rubber hose to the washer been replaced on time.
