The Top 100 Incidents of Water Damage Farmington

download (20)It is the end of March and of course that means it is now time for our annual list of top 100 incidents of water damage Farmington for all to enjoy.

100.  The incident where the Farmington river flooded and inundated the Jones homestead.

99.  The incident where it rained for three straight days and water seeped into the basement of the Smith house.

98.  There was the time when (during the same three day rain storm referred to in incident number 99) where the Taylor home down the road from the Smith home experienced some moisture which caused mold to grown in the crawl space underneath the stairs.

97.  There was another time where the Pullen family experienced water damage Farmington to their barn where the hinges to the doors rusted and broke three months later.

96.  There was another time when the Lindgren family experienced water damage to their dog house in their back yard. The wood from which the dog house was built rotted out over the course of two weeks and the dog house had to be thrown out. This was not such a significant loss as the Lindgren family dog (who never used the house by the way) had died the previous year and no one ever got around to getting rid of it.

95.  Then there was another incident of water damage to the downstairs powder room in the Maher house. Water seeped in through the roof. Apparently some shingles had blown off in a wind storm not too long ago. The water seepage caused the dry wall to sag a bit. The Mahers repaired the damage with spackle and paint. It is unclear whether the shingles on the roof were ever replaced.

94. Then there was another incident of water damage where the Farley family car which had been parked at the bottom of the street was flooded out.

Another Case of Water Damage Ogden

download (6)It is with extreme reluctance and a heavy heart that the Home and Garden Top 100 blog must report the existence of water damage Ogden this week. The water damage happened to a house in Ogden late on Monday evening. The water damage seems to be the result of heavy rains and the resultant flooding. Rising waters began to surround the house around 6:00 Pm in the evening. The inhabitants of the house did not see a reason to leave at that time but their anxiety levels were clearly rising. By 8:00 PM the water had risen to a level where it became apparent that the family should seek higher ground.


The family left their house around 9:00 PM with as many possessions as they could pack and carry with them. They found accommodations in a nearby town and waited out the rains. On the following day they returned to the house to assess the damage. Unfortunately the water seems to have inundated the first floor of the house as well as the basement. At first glance there appeared to be minimal structural damage. The most significant damage was to the sheet rock in the walls of the first floor.

The carpeting and wood floors on the first floor and in the basement will have to be removed and replaced. Obviously the saturated sheet rock will have to be removed and replaced as well. As of yet there does not appear to be any significant mold issues but that is always a concern after a house has undergone water damage. A mitigation crew has been assigned to the house. This crew will remove the damaged materials and deploy fans and heaters to dry out the affected areas of the house. By all estimates it will take a month or so to return the house to its pre-flood state.
