Apartment Flooding — Ark Not Required
Sunday night (read, 2 AM), our apartment flooded. Cheri woke up to a noise in the kitchen and yelled to me that the apartment was flooding. After a frantic search for my glasses I took a look under the sink to find the hose that connects the sink to the dishwasher had busted and water was flowing. The entire kitchen, bathroom, and half the living room were soaked.
Needless to say, we shut off the water and called the emergency maintenance line. In about 30 minutes the maintenance guy showed up with a wet-vac and soaked up the water, ripped up the carpet, removed (most of) the soaked carpet padding, and placed two carpet dryers on the floor.
Its been a few days now and the carpets are almost dry. Hopefully things will work out so we don’t have to move or anything. We’re just glad that we were home when it happened.
