Here are a couple of prior responses to similar questions that might be of use to you -

Your cheapest solution, if only replacing due to a one-time recent wetting (so no rot to worry about) would be a handyman, especially as you are probably not looking for a perfect drywall joint job. Assuming the water heater has not yet been replaced (so floor replacement is easy), might get the whole thing for around $250-400 ballpark. Also, probably easier to get a handyman on short notice than a carpenter and a drywall guy and a painter.
