THREE THINGS THAT INFLUENCE THE COST OF WATER DAMAGE IN YOUR HOME
Water damage continues even after the flood water is gone, unlike the kind of damage caused by wind or impact that’s why it has to be addressed as soon as possible. If your home is damaged by water, here are three factors that may impact the cost of damage repair.
- Square footage
It will take more time, materials and labor to fix a large space, compared to a small bedroom. Drying time is particular importance here, as bigger room will take longer to dehumidify.
- Type of Water
The type of water in your home can drastically affect the cost of repairs. For example, if the water in the area appears murky in color, this could indicate that the water is contaminated. Contaminated water is more difficult to clean due to potentially hazardous materials within the water, whereas water that is clear can cleaned with fewer safety precautions.
- Damaged Building Materials
Some materials require more restoration work than others. Water damaged hardwood floors are often easier and take much less time to repair compared to carpets. The cost of replacement materials, as well as whether restoration requires an exact match can also be a factor.
If your house has experienced flooding, it’s essential to seek out help from a company that specializes in water damage cleanup in order to get an accurate estimate of the cost and to identify long term solutions.
