My house has a basement and under the basement there is a crawl space and in the crawl space there is a sump pump. The pump moves water from a pit to the outside of the house. Unfortunately the pipe between the pump and the outside of the house broke and the pump began pumping water into the house. Water damage occurred. The damage actually went much further than what the pictures shows. On the advice of my insurance agent I hired a damage mitigation company. That was probably a big mistake. They brought in fans and air scrubbers to dry out all the wet wood. The problem is that all the wood and drywall that got wet had to be replaced anyway. Drying it out was a waste. Cost to have fans in the house and to remove wet drywall was about $3000. Sadly that was about 70% of the insurance money. So with what little money I had left I replaced all the damaged sub-floor, the insulation under the floor, laid my own carpet, and replaced all the trim. I had to pay a contractor $1000 to fix the drywall. It took about 4 months to get everything repaired. I figure I saved about $3000 doing the work myself. Here are the results.
