A staggering 15 million homes are at risk of flooding. Mother Nature is a leading cause of indoor flooding, but a broken pipe or backed-up sewage could just as easily cause the kind of damage that torrential rain pour can.
Following flooding, water extraction is one of the first steps involved in recovery. But how much do water extraction companies charge? We’ll explore that topic and more in this article.
Why Water Extraction Matters
Following a flooding accident, water extraction is the first step in restoring your home. The longer standing water is allowed to sit, the greater the risk of permanent damage to your home. The presence of water or moisture can also lead to mold, which can be a serious health problem.
Average Cost of Water Extraction
The average cost of water extraction ranges greatly. The square footage of the damaged area is one factor that our team members will have to consider before giving you a quote. In general, you can expect one to several thousand dollars to extract water.
Water Extraction Cost Factors
The amount of water is one of the biggest factors when calculating water extraction cost. More water means more time that our team has to be on-site.
The location of the flooding is another factor. Water in a crawl space, for example, is often harder to reach.
The type of water damage can influence the price. Sewage requires careful treatment. Any form of a hazardous material may increase the cost of water extraction.
If you require water extraction before or after business hours, that may also be a cost factor.
Will Insurance Cover Water Extraction?
Your homeowner insurance may or may not cover the cost of removing water from your home. Water damage caused by some sudden and accidental even may be covered. Damage from floods due to natural events may only be covered if you have flood insurance.

Water extraction requires professional attention. We recommend that homeowners do not try to remove water and repair their homes after water damage has occurred. Any remaining moisture could lead to further water damage and mold growth weeks or even months later.
