How Much Does It Cost to Fix Water Damage?

Water Restoration

This is a pervasive question that does not have an easy answer. Learning about the cost of fixing water damage can help you manage your finances in this situation. The best way to find a water damage restoration cost is to ask for an estimate from a professional restoration company. Even then, the answer is not simple.

The restoration company must go to the property and investigate the damage. Statistically, the average cost for flood damage restoration is $2,700. A slight, clean water loss will often be around $1,000, while a significant, black water loss (such as a flood) can be $5,000 or more. These costs are just for making the property dry and safe (mitigation and restoration). These costs don’t include any reconstruction, such as replacing drywall, painting, or floor covering.

What are the consequences of not repairing water damage?

This answer will vary depending on the size of the property and the areas affected by water damage. However, the longer the water is ignored, the more lasting effects will compile. Water can lead to mold growth, which in itself is its own form of property damage and can lead to major health side effects. Musty odors, stains, possible electric damage, and more are possibilities the longer the damage goes unchecked. Furthermore, the water can create structural damage to the home and its foundation, making the property unsafe. In all cases, you should mitigate water damage as soon as possible to prevent the situation from getting worse and almost certainly more costly.

Do all restoration companies charge the same rates?
