Water damage-no insurance!!
There was a leak in the kitchen, and the dining room carpet got flooded. Unfortunately, it didn't get dealt with and its been a few days, and its smelling. The carpet has water stain, and I guess that will have to be replaced. And, the padding underneath has also to go. But, what can I do about the wood beneath all that? Is it enough to just throw away the carpet and padding, and use fans and dehumdifiers to dry everything else? Is it already too late? I would go to a real professional, but its going to be too expensive. I'm reading about how professionals will drill holes into the wall, but would that be necessary in this situation? Enough water leaked so that water fell into the garage, which is located underneath the dining room.
And, since the kitchen was all tiles, I don't have to worry about that since its not carpet, right? Pretty please...
Its a condo, and I'm pretty sure the association fees will not cover this type of damage.
