- Reach out to a flood restoration team to mitigate any immediate water damage, as sitting water can lead to mold growth in as little as 48 hours.
The costs associated with flood damage restoration is completely dependent on the severity of the damage to your property. The final cost is determined by a variety of factors such as: the size of the affected area, whether water has been sitting in that area for 48 hours or longer, and the amount of time the restoration company ends up working on site. The bigger the job, the more you can expect to pay for labor and materials.
The average flood restoration cost is between $6,000 and $10,000. Of course, your restoration may cost as little as $2,500 if all you needed was water extracted from a single room. The final price is determined by several factors, including the scope of the damage, the extent of labor and the cost of materials used in restoration.
After a natural disaster, you can visit the National Flood Insurance Program website. The site provides a flood damage simulator, which will help you gauge an approximate flood damage restoration cost. Prices vary depending on the height of the water in your home. The fewer inches, the lower the estimate. Of course, there’s no substitution for consulting with a trained flood restoration professional! At Bright Restoration, we’ll be happy to provide you with an estimate that is customized to your situation.
If you intend to file an insurance claim, and your policy does not specifically cover flood damage, you need a public adjuster. It is almost always recommended to consult with a professional public adjuster before you begin filing your claim. They will help you understand the limits of your policy and explain the documentation you need to provide.
