Water damage mitigation cost in an average home or business will depend upon the following:

  • The square footage of the area that was affected. For example: Was there water damage to multiple levels in your home or business? Is it limited to one area?
  • The type of space to be worked in. For Example: Does your attic have mold? Is there mold or water in a crawlspace? Water under the basement stairs? Kitchen or bathroom in a main living area affected? Is this an industrial building or a hotel? Does your walkout basement have water or mold?
  • Type of building material affected; carpet VS wood flooring VS concrete or drywall VS block walls. For example: Was your basement recently finished? Has your crawl space flooded?
  • The amount of specialty drying equipment needed. Was there water damage to wood floors that you want to salvage? Yes, we have a machine for that! Our team can make efforts to either save your floors or make expert recommendations.
  • The category or type of the water. Clean Water (Category 1) VS unsanitary water (Category 3) For example: did a hot water tank burst? Toilet overflow? Refrigerator water line leak? Did your sump pump fail?
  • How much personal property needs to be cleaned or moved. For example: Did your finished basement flood and was full of heavy personal property? Did you have a previous roof leak in an empty bedroom?
  • How many days the work goes on until your home is returned to a healthy and safe living environment
