This time last week our basement was a swamp. It smelled, had all sorts of toys, glass, and living creatures in it.
This is where we are now.
(the most interesting part about this picture, is how you can see through 3 townhomes. Our cats have expanded their territories..)
(Um, Elliptical for sale...)
So this morning Michael Waddoups, who is the owner of our property management company, informed us that the insurance policy only covers the costs of clean up. Meaning that carpet, paint, furniture, ALL losses- are not going to be replaced. This infuriated the residents and made us all wonder why the flood insurance was mandated upon everyone.
Marcus, from Crawford U.S. Property & Casualty came to assess our damage for the insurance. He basically looked at the walls, measured them, and told us to make a list of all our losses, value and age of them. He ALSO mentioned that he "wasn't sure what policy we had, so he couldn't tell us what was, or was not covered."
So we are all basically left with little hope. However, we finally got to throw everything that was saturated in river water that was smelling worse and worse everyday, into the dumpster. Josh and I filled the whole thing, alone.
