Flooded Basement Cleanup Cost
The cost of a flooded basement cleanup can range between 2500 to 5000 dollars for a standard finished basement. These basements are between 800 and 1500 square feet and are finished with drywall, baseboards, carpeting, and other finishes including bathrooms and kitchens. This cost estimate is only for the water mitigation or the water cleanup portion of the restoration process, so water damage repair cost would in addition.
Cleaning up a flooded basement on overtime hours will increase the price by about 1.5 times, which means the cost will be between 3750 to 7500 dollars. It will usually benefit the home owner to wait and have a restoration company complete the cleanup process on normal time hours. Insurance coverage for flooded basements usually have a limit of 10000 – 15000 dollars.
If you have a 1000 square foot basement and you hire a restoration contractor to work after 5 pm or on Saturday or Sunday, then you will lose a lot of your budget cleaning up the water damage on overtime hours. You may run out of money from your insurance coverage to make the water damage repairs and will have to pay extra out of pocket.
Unfinished Basement Flood Cleanups
A unfinished basement flood cleanup can cost between 1000 to 2500 dollars. We believe that it doesn’t always make sense for a restoration contractor to be involved for unfinished basement cleanups. Which is why, Restorex will help some customers by giving them free advice on how to complete the cleanup themselves.
If a customer is willing to put in some sweat equity and buy a few pieces of drying equipment from a hardware store, then they can potentially save a lot of money.
