Water Damage

Saturday, June 07, 2014

Abba, You knew the only way I would hear the water leak yesterday,was for the electricity to go off. Now the Plumber fixed the leak and warned us to call our insurance company before taking any water damaged areas off.

Thank You for sending me out of the house this morning to get my hair cut and permed. The lady took her time and I was gone for 3 1/2 hours so, I wasn't at home when the man came.

Thank You for encouraging my Spouse to call the Insurance Company this morning. They sent someone out and found extensive damage under our Mobile home. The underlining is soaked and sagging, almost touching the ground. The damage is all under the house floor. He put fans under the house and a Machine inside to pull as much water out as possible. They won't be able to do anything else until Monday and will send out an 8-man team. It started raining again after 5 p.m.

The floors are so soggy and mooshie in the kitchen under the linoleum that it feels almost like the whole floor is about to give. We are being told the the whole floor inside the house may have to be ripped out and replaced.

Abba, may they replace the whole floor with wood-like flooring instead of linoleum and carpet. We need the carpet replaced so that our Allergies will clear up. I am tired of My Hubby getting sick all the time from Allergy flare-ups.

May the Insurance Company find a great hotel for us and out dog to stay in until ALL of the work is done.

It's been a long and interesting day.

After 3 p.m. my best friend called. Her feet were burning so, I went and looked at them. Her wound is draining so, I cleaned and replaced bandages. Help her foot not get worse before I can get her to the Wound Care Clinic on Tuesday morning

    I'm agreeing in prayer with you about the type of flooring that suits you and hubby's needs better, hotel room, and that it's done in a reasonable amount of time. I'm also praying for your friends wound. I pray your week doesn't get too crazy.

    What they do about the floor will depend on the type coverage you have. I have a 33 year career in insurance. Ask you agent if you have replacement cost coverage. If you do, it may be cheaper for them to replace with wood than to replace with vinyl and carpet. That really depends on the insurance company. This repair will probably take some time. But it sounds like you have good coverage. Ask lots of questions and take notes with names about the things they say they will or will not do. God bless you. I am so sorry that this has happened to y'all. Also, be very careful about mold. If they get the job done quickly, that should not be a problem. Keep us posted about the progress, OK? My heart goes out to you as I know this is a very trying time right now. emoticon Judy

    Just turn around and tell the insurance you want wood, and that you will find cheap wood to replace the same cost, or go with lament. The insurance company has to pay for you to go into a place I think & for the dog also. Sounds terrible. I wonder why your friends feet were bleeding? Is she a diabetic?eva
