The day after our flood, insurance confirmed our coverage shortly before 1:00 and by 2:15 I’d received an email from Arron that his team was already in the house and beginning their initial assessment of the damage. They were revealing the subfloors so that the drying process could begin.
I can’t express what a weird feeling it was driving home not knowing what state our home would be in! I walked in with butterflies in my stomach wondering if I’d see many changes.
It was easy to see that in a short amount of time they had done A LOT of work!! (They had done all of this in just 2.5 hours as they were out of my home by 4:30 to allow me to teach piano that evening.)
Now, let’s talk about fans and dehumidifiers! NOTE: We need to speak LOUDLY because, take my word for it, 9 industrial fans and dehumidifiers in our tiny home sounded a bit like a small airplane was landing inside!
Upstairs a bit of the vinyl had been removed in the bathroom and more fans were blowing. This is the toilet that had over flowed so I kept the water to it turned off. Hannah added a cute sign to ensure nobody used it. (If you look closely you can also see a small hole behind the toilet. Much of the water went down there and into the family room ceiling.)
So, other than our home sounding a bit like an airport
we were doing just fine! (Video is dark as we had to wait for an electrician to check the wiring in the ceiling before we could use any of those fixtures due to the amount of water that had poured through them.)
I am thankful though that even with 9 industrial sized fans and dehumidifiers running in our home, we were able to close the bedroom door at night and sleep quite peacefully.
