Tenant Move Out Cleanup >> Flood Damage

So your tenants moved out without notice about Flood Damage. So your tenants of moved out and upon inspecting the premises after they moved, you find water all over the floors. First step is, call a professional water restoration company. Let them deal with your insurance company as they know how to do this they do this all the time. They are also very good at dry your house out and putting it back together at low costs.

  1. You could try and do this yourself but without knowing all the areas that are going to be wet or moist, you probably will not get all the Flood Damage. If you don't get all the moisture, mold spores which occurred in nature, will begin to grow and cause problems. Also these professionals will really help you find the problem. If they can't they will recommend a qualified plumber to find the problem. By hiring a professional restoration company you may be able to avoid having to purchase new carpet and padding for the home. And by having a professional restoration company do it it's a lot easier to deal with the insurance and be able to write it off your taxes.
  2. You also have to evaluate your time and your ability to do this Flood Damage. Some jobs it is just better left to the PROFESSIONALS. And this is especially true if mold has begun to grow mold remediation can be a real problem. As a landlord you have to provide habitable living conditions for the next tenant or you may find yourself in court. And even if you do the right things, with our litigious society, you may still end up in court. But having all the proper documentation from a professional company could give you a victory in Flood Damage. Professional restoration companies usually have somebody on staff that can deal with these issues and help you through.  
  3. The idea that landlords must bear this expense while local office buildings are so poorly operated that tenants run space heaters in the summer to offset the extreme air conditioning, and leave the windows open in the winter to counteract extreme heating, is nothing short of disgusting. Get your own Flood Damage in order first! Let this be a charitable effort and not another authorized administrative obligation on rental property owners that will cause leases to be forced even higher.
  4. The price will be spread on to tenants. More and more tenants will move to nearby cities for more reasonable housing choices. More travel will be coming in and out of the municipality. More Flood Damage gasses might be made by a flood. More flooded rental houses will go on the market for sale at prices below the average rate because people or families don’t want them. The community will continue to have a decline because of the income levels of tenants. In the end, the overall cleanup in the rental units depends on the water, not the improvements.
