Most of the time it, whether or not a piece of furniture or a household appliance can be repaired after a flood depends on the value of the item in question. It’s also important to understand that when you make a claim on your homeowner’s insurance for water damage, the insurance company will split the claim into two portions. The first is damage to the structure of the home, the second is for its contents. While both portions will be paid for by the company, they will be paid for separately.
Before the insurance company will write a check, they will want to look at each piece and assess the value of the item, along with an estimate for repairing the damage. A couch that’s worth $600-$800 will almost certainly be replaced, rather than reupholstered. An antique piece of furniture that has a lot of sentimental value, however, may be worth restoring.
In regards to electrical appliances, water can do very serious damage that is very difficult to repair, and they very rarely have any sentimental value. It’s almost always a better idea to replace them, rather than spend money trying to fix them, and have them malfunction in the near future.
