Though the cost depends on upon the flooded area, it usually ranges between $650-$1325.
Some more factors that affect restoration costs are:
The type of water damage
Is it “ clean” water or “black” water that has overflowed and damaged your property? Blackwater may be toxic and thus require to be dealt with more care and precautions.
Type of damage
Which part of your house has been damaged? Is it a large area or a cramped space or several levels?
What kind of equipment would be required for the job? That’s usually determined by finding out about the type of water damage and type of damage.
What kind of material would be required to restore the damaged materials?
Contamination Of Water Damage
There are three categories used to differentiate between the intensity of water damage.
Category one is the safest of the lot (still dangerous). Water from broken clean water supply lines and faucets can be counted in this category.
Category two involves water that may have some level of contaminants that can cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources may include washing machine overflow, toilet overflow with some urine but no feces and dishwasher overflow.
Category three water is grossly unsanitary and can cause severe illness or death if ingested. Sources may include sewage, flooding from rivers or streams, wind driven rain, water from toilet bowl with feces and water with microbial growth.
Class Of Destruction
To determine the type of damage, there are several classes used to categorize it.
Class 1 water damage involves the least amount of water, absorption, and evaporation. Water losses affect only a small part of the area containing materials that have absorbed minimal moisture.
Class 2 water damage involves a large amount of water, absorption, and evaporation. Water losses caused by this class affect larger areas, and moisture may get seeped into structural materials like plywood, structural wood, concrete, etc.
Class 3 water damage involves the greatest amount of water, absorption, and evaporation. Water may affect even ceilings and walls.
Class 4 water damage involve specialty drying situations. It includes the wet material with very low porosity like hardwood, plaster, brick and concrete.
