Water Damage Repair Costs

How to help keep the cost down for cleaning up and repairing the damage left behind after a water or flood incident.

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.

Hello everyone,

The cause of damage can be due to a river flood, burst water heater, leaking appliance seepage through your crawl space or basement. Water damage will be even more extensive and repair costs will spiral out of control quickly. Thanks a lot...
