Common Water Damage Questions
How much does it cost for Water & Flood Damage Restoration and Sewage Cleanup services?
To help you better understand what you can expect to pay in the event of water damage, we’ve used our years of experience to break the process down. The actual cost of emergency water damage restoration or sewage cleanup services varies largely for two main reasons. First, the pricing of a job is completed on a case-by-case basis. Second, different companies will always offer different quotes for the same job. Determining how much a particular job will cost is easy — simply ask for a quote. However, we caution our customers to look beyond a simple verbal quote or over-the-phone estimate. Instead, make sure your contractor offers you a written quote breaking down all of the individual costs of the operation so you have the documents in your records and for your convenient reference. Not all contractors do this automatically, so be sure to ask for it specifically. Understanding how a contractor prices a job: Generally, the more water a contractor is dealing with, the higher you will be charged. Other factors of consideration include:
- The height of the water
- The amount of water that still needs to be extracted
- Water type
- There are three categories of water:
- Clean water which does not pose any health risks
- Greywater comes from sources with physical, biological, or chemical pollutants like kitchen wastewater or laundry water. Greywater can cause illness or discomfort to those exposed to it or consuming it.
- Blackwater is highly toxic and absolutely unsanitary. This includes sewage and floodwater.
- Obviously, you can expect to pay more if the water type is dangerous and therefore requires more effort to clean.
- There are three categories of water:
- Size of the affected area
- This is usually measured by square feet.
- The extent of the damage
- The materials involved
Residential Water Damage Cleanup & Sewage Cleanup can sometimes average between $3000 – $10,000 and Commercial Water Damage Cleanup services can sometimes range between $3000 and $30,000.
