The cost to restore water damage involves many factors.
There are three categories of water damage cleanup.
Restoring a small area of water damage from a roof leak can be $100-$300 to patch the drywall, this does not include fixing the roof and repainting.
A flood can cost $500-$10,000 or more, depending on the size of the area, the depth of the flooding and the type of water
Depending on where the appliance is located in the house, water damage cleanup of a faulty water heater, washing machine, dishwasher or air conditioner averages about $5,000, according to HomeOwnerNet.com .
Water Damage from a burst water pipe can cost $5,000-$70,000 or more with an average insurance claim costing $15,000.
If an entire house is flooded with storm water, the National Flood Insurance Program provides a flood damage simulator to predict the total cost based on the height of the water.
For 1"-4" of water, water damage cost is $7,800. 9"-12", the damage estimate is $18,930. More than 18", the estimated cost is $26,285..
Water damage may be covered by your insurance.
Flood insurance typically covers damage from a natural disaster, when outside water floods an otherwise dry house.
Homeowners insurance does not cover floods, but may cover water damage caused by a hailstorm smashing a window or a broken water pipe, The insurance company will determine if the equipment had been properly maintained before making a determination that water damage is covered.

Water covers the earth, we drink it, we need it to live. It is not however; to our benefit when it intrudes our buildings. Water causes severe structural and building damage. Water damage can also lead to health problems by inviting mold if left un-treated. Lastly, it can get very expensive to restore commercial and residential space the longer it is left un-treated.
Water can enter in different ways. Water from storms and weather as well as sewage backups can be very harmful, and require other specialty extraction methods. Water intrusion from faucet leaks, water heater, and some light rain roof leaks are not so severe as the water has not become completely contaminated yet. We want to attack these as fast as possible to avoid the worsening.
Water cleanup mitigation is the practice of removing and drying (Water extraction) water from a space before it has the chance to cause further damage. If responded to quickly enough, water damage can usually be cleaned up and dried out quickly as to avoid further problems. Many times however; water mitigation and cleanup involves removing some items such as drywall, flooring, tile and furniture during the water extraction process.
The water extraction process begins with specialty water extraction equipment including water extractors, dehumidifiers, directional air movers and negative air machines. These tools are necessary and must be used in conjunction with one another to successfully extract water and dry out the area. See pricing below.
Once the bulk of the water has been removed, the drying process begins. This step in the mitigation process involves several specialty drying fans, dehumidifiers, negative air machines and hepa-vacuums. These machines work in conjunction to speed up the drying process while removing potentially harmful particles from the air as well as pulling moisture from the air while heating the area to cause enough heat to dry the area. Yes, it can be a very difficult and time consuming process depending on the severity of the water damage and the size of the area involved in the restoration.
In most cases, things that will need replaced during the water mitigation process are drywall, carpet, wood and wood substrates, tile, ceiling tiles and cabinets. Cinder walls, brick, glass, concrete and cement floors and other surfaces similar to these can usually be dried and disinfected with a solution.
