If you have recently suffered from a flood, without a doubt the thing that is foremost in your mind is how much water damage restoration is going to cost? You are probably thinking that it will cost you an arm and a leg and are considering doing the clean-up yourself to save on money. But depending on several factors, water damage restoration is actually not that expensive and is definitely worth your while.
In today’s post, water and fire damage restoration specialists Special Touch Restoration shares the typical costs of an average water damage restoration job and explains why you should let an expert do the job for you.
What Is the Average Cost of Water Damage Restoration?
There is no easy answer to this question. As you can imagine, there are several factors that play a role in determining the cost of a restoration such as the size of the affected area, the amount of sitting water still in your building, and even what color the sitting water is.
Nevertheless, there is data available on how much the average homeowner will spend on water damage restoration work. The national average for water damage restoration is somewhere around $2,700. But remember, each situation is unique. If you have a flooded basement and the rest of your home is left untouched then you can expect to pay around $1,000. But, if you are dealing with sewage backup, mold, and structural damage, then you can expect to shell out somewhere between $5,000 to $7,000 on average.
A licensed restoration company can easily classify the damage and give you an accurate quotation. If you are dealing with water damage on your property, you have to keep in mind that the longer you sit around and wait, the more damage flood water is going to cause and the more expensive a restoration job can get.
