Damage caused by dosmetic animals is excluded in all homeowner's policies and it is unlikely that SC would require an exception for this exclusion for policies issued in their state. Water damage to carpeting from a Plumbing system leak (if sudden as opposed to a slow leak over time) is a covered loss. Could it be that the water damage did not destroy the carpet as it could be dried and cleaned but due to the pet damage it was ruined? //

Yes,, that can Happen but it depends on what kind of policy you bought. If you purchased a "RC" replacment coverage policy then it will pay to replace all the carpet that is damaged from a covered loss.If you bought the cheaper "ACV" actual cash valued policy then it will only pay the depreciated value of the damaged carpet. This may make it seem that they are only paying for part of it if the replacement cost is higher than the depreciated value.
