Friday evening we came home to a flooded kitchen. Lots o’ fun.
We currently have large industrial fans blowing on our now-exposed walls (the baseboards were ripped out) trying to make sure all the dampness is gone. These fans arrived with the men that knocked on our door at 10:45pm on Friday night, after we made a call to our insurance company. They had these little doo-dacky things that measured the dampness in the floors. Apparently there was a lot. Just because we didn’t feel it didn’t mean it was there.
The flooding spread from the kitchen into our school room, soaking the carpet and ruining our beautiful table and chairs that the kids got for Christmas. It also spread into the living room, soaking part of the carpet. All the carpet has been ripped up and the padding removed. Many, many baseboards have been removed around the whole area. And like I said we have all these fans blowing. It’s very loud and very hot because of the heat they produce.
Tomorrow we will be talking with the insurance company again and hopefully within a day or two we’ll get an adjustor out to assess it and tell us what the next step is.
So, life is interesting. We’re eat our evening meals at my parents’ house because our kitchen is somewhat out of service for a few days. But other than the kids’ table nothing was ruined. It’s just going to be inconvenient for a while.
This isn’t my best piece of writing but I just wanted to write it down for posterity
