Our first major setback occurred yesterday in the new home. We had a flood in the basement that occurred on our 3rd night in the house. We went down to the basement only to step into a 1 inch puddle of water in the bathroom. Admittedly I did use the toilet but it was only for a #1. So I knew it was not our fault.
I called the PM who got Roto Rooter out on a Sunday and a water damage
restoration team on scene within a few hours. Roto Rooter determined that
the cleaners or whoever flushed some paper towels or baby wipe biodegradable
towels. Causing a blockage and a slow backup. Roto Rooter said do not
believe the hype these biodegradable cleaning towels are full of it and cause
more stoppages and problems than anything else they deal with.
Next the water restoration people told me to buy some alarms at Home
Depot/Lowes etc that will warn you when you have some water building up.
If we did not luck out and discover this later by it would be a whole lot
RH needless to say footed the immediate bills and handled themselves in an
exemplary manner so far.
Since these photos they have torn out the carpet and what I am awaiting to see is if they replace it all or just the sections.
Meanwhile, we have Tuesday as they day the yard get put it, tv get hung (allegedly), shower door people come back wit the new one or something...all kinds of stuff. Should be a busy day.
