Yikes!

Having seen what can happen when a building floods (the building where I work has has floods of varying degrees about 6 times now) I can sympathise.

You are lucky that not much was damaged.

The worst part for us was the musty smell for months afterwards.  Ceiling tiles can always be replaced.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Ouch. I've seen some flooding in commercial and in houses. Commercial can be somewhat easier to deal with.

With that colour water and mix of fluids, I'd definitely be looking at pulling that carpet too, and maybe going with a plain floor, at least until you're sure things are clean and dry. Odd smells and mold would suck.

Nothing wrong with investigating a drip either! But how'd they manage to turn it into a flood? :(

Guessing that you're covered by building insurance?

That stinks dude. At least it wasn't your fault so maybe someone else will pay for some of the damage.

My 3 year old flooded our apartment a few months ago, and the one under us. Stinks when it's your fault and you cause all the trouble for others.
I'm back.
