Multiple factors impact drying time, including the amount of water, possible contamination, and source. We also look at weather conditions, the materials impacted, and how fast restoration services begin after the incident. We will develop a drying plan that will best fit your building. We monitor and evaluate the drying process following IICRC standards and provide timely updates.
The construction of furnishings and the extent of damage determines salvageability. Many times, furniture must be thoroughly dried before we can give an adequate assessment. All unsalvageable commercial furnishings will be documented, and we will inform you of items that must be disposed of before we take action.
Not in most cases. We will inform you if items need to be relocated.
We strongly recommend keeping foot traffic to the bare minimum. In many situations, we put containment barriers up to limit the tracking of moisture and soils into unaffected areas of your commercial property.
