Punch the fucking monkey.

The good news:
Rather than pull up the existing carpet in the apartment, the complex decided to try and do an extraction-in-place. That is good because with the first option, it would have meant moving everything in the apartment someplace else for several days. As it is I only had to move everything out of the living room and into the dining room, kitchen, and the dry half of the bedroom.

The bad news:
1.) $1000 deductibe on the renters insurance policy. Meaning that if I was to stay in a hotel, it's out of my own pocket.

2.) Currently there are five super blowers and two industrial dehumidifiers running in my apartment. It sounds a whole lot like the outside of an airport.

3.) Estimated four days drying time.

The apartment is at about 70% humidity. I have opened up a couple of windows-- even though it's ass cold outside, it's also extremely dry air. And gas heat is cheaper than electricity.

Two of the five fans are in my bedroom. I'm going to try to sleep here tonight. I figure I'll probably dream about being in an airplane.

Yikes! Aren't they liable for mechanical malfunctions and such? I'd expect them to foot the bill for stuff like this and that your insurance covers your property loss/damage.

They are liable for all of the mechanical malfunctions and damage to the actual rental property not caused by me. However, for my own property, renter's insurance is necessary.
If something of mine was damaged, their insurance wouldn't cover it. And technically it was a flood, so I'd need separate flood insurance.
It's all quite suck.
