HO : Sure Jim. Yesterday it rained for ten hours straight. Now, our roof was in need of repair apparently and water leaked in. Some of my furniture and carpet got soaked. It is unclear whether there has been any structural damage. The room is smelling a little musty so there might be mold growing in there but I’m not certain about that.
What steps did you take to mitigate the water damage Utah?
HO : Well, we ripped out the carpet and cut out the section of dry wall that got soaked. We then put some fans in the room to dry them out. We will also have to get the roof looked at and see what kind of repairs will be needed there.
Did you call a contractor to come out and inspect the damage?
HO : We did. They have not gotten here yet but they claim they will come within twenty-four hours of the time the house suffers water damage Utah.
What will they do when they get here?
HO : Like I said, they will assess the damage and then take steps to fix the damage. We already did some of the work like ripping up the carpet, cutting out dry wall and setting up the fans. If we were not as handy as we are then I suppose they would have done all that. The next step is to find out whether there has been any structural damage. If there is then the cost of repair will be significantly higher.
You will probably have to get the insurance company involved if that is the case.
HO : Definitely. Not sure if the cost of repair will exceed the deductible without structural damage.
