Bathroom Water Damage: Everything You Need To Know
When your bathroom is flooding, a lot of questions and concerns are running through your mind— but there’s no time to waste.
Click on the sections below to quickly learn everything you need to know if you’re bathroom is flooding or if you’re suffering from water damage.
What To Do If Your Bathroom Floods (6 Easy Steps)
First things first: if you’re dealing with a flooded bathroom, you should call a trusted restoration company.
Yes, most homeowners can handle a small leak from a sink or shower. However, flooded bathroom clean up is not a DIY job, especially if toilet overflow cleanup is necessary.
While you’re waiting for the professionals to arrive, follow these steps to protect your bathroom and minimize the damage.
Step 1: Shut Off the Water Supply
If water is flooding out of your toilet, sink, shower or bathtub, and you can’t seem to stop it, you’ll need to shut off the fixture’s water supply valve.
Shut off valves can be in the form of a lever, a spigot, or a knob. No matter the water fixture, you can turn any valve clockwise to shut it off.
For sinks, you can locate the shut off valves beneath the sink. They are connected to two metal tubes (one for hot and one for cold water) that run up to the back of the faucet.
For toilets, the shut off valve is usually located near the bottom left side of the toilet tank.
For water heaters, go to the breaker box and shut off the specific breaker for the water heater.
For showers or bathtubs, go ahead and shut off the home’s main water supply as the shut off valves for these fixtures are difficult to access.
The home’s main water supply is usually located above or beneath the water heater or somewhere in the garage. Use a wrench if you’re having difficulty turning the valves with your hands.
Step 2: Avoid Electrical Hazards
Ensure that electronics are removed from the area.
If the water is above the outlet line or if devices are plugged in, leave the room and shut off the electricity to the affected rooms.
Step 3: Document the Damages
It sounds counter-intuitive, but you actually want to document the water damage before you start cleaning up.Take photos or videos of the water intrusion, the affected areas, and any water-damaged property.
This evidence will help when you file your insurance claim later down the line.
Step 4: Clean Up the Water
Grab towels, a bucket, and a mop, and begin soaking up as much water as you can. If you’re dealing with sewage water, wait for the professionals to do this.
Step 5: Move Valuables
Move valuables, rugs, or furniture to a dry area of the home to prevent them from getting soaked.
Do not leave anything on the floor that could bleed, like magazines or newspapers.
If the water spread beyond the bathroom and you can’t move heavy furniture pieces, you can wrap their feet it saran wrap, aluminum foil, or plastic bags to protect them.
Step 6: Begin Drying
Set up fans at full blast around the room and point them towards the floor or any affected areas, like inside the bathroom cabinets. Again, only do so if there aren’t any risks of electrical hazards.
You can also open bathroom cabinets, windows and doors to allow for more air circulation. However, you’ll want to keep the windows closed if it rained recently or if the outside air is humid.
The Average Cost of Bathroom Water Damage Repair & Cleanup
Every water damage scenario is different, so, unfortunately, there is no standard cost for bathroom water damage repair or cleanup.
First, you must address the water that’s causing the issue. Plumbing repairs cost $300 on average.
The cost of simply extracting water from a flooded bathroom costs around $3,000.
Again, the prices above are a rough estimate. The costs can be lower or higher depending on other factors, such as the volume of water and if repairs are necessary.
To help you understand the costs, we’ve put together a list of factors that restoration companies use to determine the final bill.
Cost Factor #1: Type of Water
Restoration companies categorize water based on how dirty it is. The more contaminated the water is, the more expensive it is to remove it as it requires specialized equipment and training.
- Clean water: This water poses no threat of contamination, and usually comes from leaking pipes, faucets, or toilet tanks. The cleanup cost for this is $3.75 per square foot.
- Grey water: This water contains some degree of contaminants. Examples include chemical water discharge from a dishwasher or toilet overflows where urine is present. The cleanup costs is $4.50 per square foot.
- Black water: This water is highly contaminated and usually comes from sewage backups. Cleanup costs are around $7 per square foot.
Cost Factor #2: Volume & Square Footage of Water
The volume of water and how far it spread is another important cost factor. For example, extracting water from a small area is cheaper than providing flood cleanup if a burst pipe caused standing water in several rooms.
Cost Factor #3: The Extent of Damage
The extent of the bathroom water damage is another obvious cost factor. Cutting out and replacing a small patch of drywall or carpeting is much less expensive than reconstructing an entire room.
Cost Factor #4: Type of Repair Materials Involved
The type of repair materials will also affect the price. For instance, if you need to repair items, like cabinets or vanities, it’s going to cost a lot more than repairing standard structural materials, like drywall or tile.
Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Bathroom Water Damage?
The quick answer: It depends.
Most insurance policies cover water damage resulting from “sudden and accidental” causes. This means insurers will cover the repair costs, if, for example, a bathtub or toilet accidentally overflows.
Insurance companies, however, do not cover water damage resulting from negligence.
For example, let’s say you noticed your upstairs toilet or shower was leaking and you didn’t do anything about it. Now you’ve got serious ceiling water damage and you finally decide you want to make a claim. In this scenario, they will most likely deny your claim.
With that said, insurance companies don’t expect you to rip out your bathroom drywall periodically to check for leaks. They understand it’s impossible to know you have a problem until the water damage is visible to the naked eye.
The best advice is to deal with the problem quickly. Insurance adjusters can tell when water damage is recent and when a problem has been neglected.
