how much to dry out carpet and wall

My water heater which is located in my bedrooms hallway ruptured and leaked water. The carpet in the hallway got soaked, a bathroom which was carpeted was effected, one bedroom was effected, and the master bedroom along the wall was effected. How much should this dry out run about.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

IF can be done by carpet cleaner with powerful truck-mounted vacuumm equipment (like Servicemaster floor service and others), probably $300-500 range. If requires tearing carpet out and then drying out lower part of walls, etc - typically $1000+ for the tearout and drying/dehumidification without flooring replacement cost, plus cost of repair to walls and new flooring. If got up into the wall insulation, typically easily that much more again.

Simple carpet drying if did not get into walls, many carpetn cleaning companies that do carpet shampooing with truck-mounted large vacuums can do that - otherwise a Water and Smoke Damag (your Search the List category) company is probably your best bet.
