You Lose Everything In A Flooded Home
And water damage can cause a world of hurt
A water damaged house can pose one of the biggest issues for a property.
This is because once a leak begins, regardless of if it comes from the roof, interior plumbing, or flooding, it can lead to a host of other problems.
If a leak goes unchecked, it starts to cause higher amounts of damage, expanding holes/leaks, and creating an environment with moisture that leads to mold.
If a pipe breaks and the water has spread throughout the home and gone through the floor, chances are you’re going to have to pay for new flooring and tear out areas of sheet rock, depending on how long the water was there.
With this kind of damage, it might be too costly to repair and you can instead look to see how much cash you can get for it.
These problems are exponentially worse with a flood
As with the floods from Hurricane Harvey, water damage from multiple feet of standing water can totally destroy a house.
In a best case scenario, the homeowner had to get rid of a lot of personal belongings, furniture, and rip out the flooring and sheet rock in order to remediate.
In a worst case scenario, the water stayed in the house and over the course of 8-9 months caused devastating structural damage and the perfect breeding grounds for mold.
Houses in this scenario are often forced to be torn down, which is why it’s important to remediate and dry the home as quickly as possible.
