Remember all of the before and after pictures from two posts ago?
On Friday after school, the boys and I took a trip to the library for an hour. We came home to the house covered in 2" to 4" of water.
The flexible tube that runs from the wall to the toilet broke and water was shooting out like a geyser for probably about an hour.
My wonderful neighbor ran over with his shop-vac and sucked up about 80+ gallons but the damage was done.
One week old carpet, ruined.
One year old wood floors, ruined.
Two day old new furniture in the boy's rooms, ruined.
A crew came to the house at 8:30 that night and ripped everything out.
We are now living in the family room , the only room that didn't get wet, with tons of big dry air fans and huge de-humidifiers.
It's 89 degrees and windy in here!
I'm in the process of trying to find some of the other furniture that was damaged online.
I'm so frustrated. We just talked the other day about how we have lived here for 10 1/2 years and finally everthing is done. All the carpets have been replaced, all new furniture, all paint.
The restoration crew is coming today to see if the sheet rock can be saved.
Please, please be saved!
We have a ranch style house with no basement so the water just spread everywhere.
foyer with big fans.
On the bright side, we have wonderful neighbors, family and friends!!
