Major Factors Of Water Damage Cleanup In St Paul 

water damage cleanup st paul, water damage st paul, water damage repair st paulWater damage results in thousands of dollars in insurance claims every year in the United States, and, according to the Insurance Information Institute, 1 in 50 homes files a water damage claim each year. So, how do you prepare to cover water damage cleanup if it affects your home in St Paul? How much will it cost? There are several factors that need to be taken into account when determining water damage cleanup costs.  Some common factors are location, size of the affected area, category of water damage, how long damage has been present, extent of the damage, cost of labor, and cost of materials. All of these factors will fall into one of three categories of expenses following water damage:

  1. The cost of water removal and drying
  2. The cost of structural repairs
  3. The cost of replacement of property

Water Damage Cleanup In St Paul

Let’s break down these different factors, and explain how they can cause prices to vary – starting with the size of the affected area. This is pretty self-explanatory; the more square footage that has sustained damage, the more costly removal and repairs will be. Depending on the type of water that has damaged the area, cost will be less or more expensive. Damage from category 1, or clean water damage is the easiest and least expensive to cleanup, estimating around $3.75 per square foot. Gray Water, or Category 2 Water, may have chemical contaminants that makes cleanup more expensive. Damage sustained from gray water estimates around $4.50 per square foot for cleanup. The third category of water, Black Water, is grossly contaminated water and is deemed hazardous to health. Cleanup from this type of water estimates $7.00 per square foot. 

The amount of time water is allowed to sit will also affect repair costs, because the longer water damage is present, the more extensive the damage will be. Delaying drying and repairs after water damage could end up costing thousands of dollars more because water damage escalates very quickly. FIXR Cost Guides estimates that repair costs can increase by $10,000 when 1 inch deep or more of water is not dried out or cleaned up in a timely manner. The extent of the damage will only increase the longer water is left to penetrate and seep into materials in the home. Repair costs will also vary depending on your location, but there are some general ballpark prices for basic home repairs that we can use to help calculate water damage repair costs. 

  • Replacing carpet: $4.00 – $5.00 per square foot
  • Replacing drywall: $1.40 per square foot
  • Repairing plaster walls: $6.00 – $18.75 per square foot
  • Refinishing hardwood flooring: $10.45 per square foot
  • Remediation of mold: $5.00 per square foot

I don’t think your company performed work at Derek’s home as there was minimal damage, he called me today and thanked me profusely for referring ICC to him. He was very impressed with the rep that came to his house and the honesty and helpful advice he gave him about clean up and that it may not be in his best interest to file a claim. He is the type of customer that appreciates good service and will remember it and refer others. Thanks again for ICC’s help.

As the coordinator of facilities and grounds for the State’s fourth largest school district I am involved is a lot of activities and unfortunately some are emergencies in nature. This includes fire, floods, sewer backups and natural disasters. Thankfully this does not happen often but when it does I rely on a restoration company’s specialists who have the knowledge and equipment to quickly clean and restore the affected area of the building or grounds…
